Talking to your kids about art
Some of FAM's exhibitions can help open a dialogue within a family to help a young child or teen better understand a concept, an art movement, or a social issue. On this page, we are offering links and information that may assist you in talking to your kids about art or give you information to make your next museum visit more enjoyable.
- A flyer prepared for third graders which answers the question What is a Museum?
- Watch a video prepared by the De Young Museum in San Francisco called Museums Rule! Why do art museum rules exist?
Exploring the Art

Note that due to safety issues with COVID-19, Pre-Schooler Bags are currently not available. You can use your own pipe cleaners and try it from home while looking at artwork in a book, on your wall, or online.
HIV/AIDS - Sections of The AIDS Memorial Quilt and The NAMES Project have been displayed at the Museum on several occasions. While the links below are not about art, we left them up as they do have value.
If you are a teacher, please get authorization from your administration before talking to your students about any issues which may be controversial.
