About the NGAkids Art Zone
interactive art that you can make online

NGAkids interactives offer an entertaining and informative introduction to art and art history. Featuring a variety of art-making tools that encourage exploration and creativity, these computer-based activities are suitable for all ages. Simply select a thumbnail image at the left or click one of the colorful banners above to learn more about each program. The Art Zone programs require a Mac or PC. They cannot be used on mobile devices.


Teen Programs are designed for students in grades 7 through 12 who want to explore their passion for art outside of school.  Programs offer a variety of museum experiences including in-gallery conversations around original works of art, studio instruction, behind-the-scenes tours, arts career information, and an opportunity to collaborate with other teens who are interested in art.


Discover a variety of multi-generational programs and resources that engage children and adults in active exploration of art.


Family Programs at the National Gallery of Art are based on a philosophy of slowing down, focusing on one work of art, developing observation and thinking skills, inspiring curiosity and wonder, and fostering collaboration between children and adults.  Many of the programs are age-specific, while others are designed for a broader age range.  Please note that some programs require advance registration while others have onsite sign-in on the date of the program.  All Family Programs are free, and participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.

They also have free resources as well.
