Kimbell Kids: Animals in Art

Tuesday, June 24, 2014 -- lboan

Focusing on a single theme or idea during your family visit is a great way to keep everyone excited and focused. We tend to like broad or simple themes. They generate more options in the galleries and appeal to more people.

Introducing the Kimbell Education Blog

Thursday, May 15, 2014 -- lboan

We envision this as a space for sharing some of the thoughts and processes that define how we approach learning experiences in the Museum’s galleries and studios. We also hope that it will become a place where others find inspiration for their interactions with art and art making.
