Families Together: Meet Ups mission is to create an atmosphere of lifelong learning. Families are invited to spend time together exploring a topic inspired by the Smithsonian's collections. Different activities are available for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and early elementary aged children. Each Meet Up will focus on a specific artwork or object and a related topic. Play stations will be available for the hour, and an educator led experience, centered around the object will take place. Explore, wonder, observe, and learn! CLASS DESCRIPTION
Join us to explore this gigantic spider sculpture, Spider by Louise Bourgeois
at the National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden! Through play, art, and experimentation we'll learn more about these fascinating (and sometimes spooky) arachnids, and how the artist views spiders as a comforting presence.
