The whole family is welcome at the High Museum of Art. No matter what day you visit, we always have something going on—from activities for the very young to programs for the young at heart. Each month, we organize our programming around a theme. Check out what we have planned for the upcoming months.
January Family Programs
Theme: Southern Sampler
January's theme is Southern Sampler! The South is rich with tradition and artistic achievements. Families will get to know a sampling of artists from our region and learn art-making techniques common throughout the Southeast.
The following books will be read during storytimes this month:
Found Alphabet by Ramon Shindler and Wojciech Graniczewski
Stitchin’ and Pullin’: A Gee’s Bend Quilt by Patricia McKissack, illustrated by Cozbi A. Cabrera
The King of the Birds by Acree Graham Macam, illustrated by Natalie Nelson
When Louis Armstrong Taught Me Scat by Muriel Harris Weinstein, illustrated by R. Gregory Christie
Sewing Stories by Barbara Herkert, illustrated by Vanessa Brantley-Newton
February 2017: Make a Difference
How can artists help fight for social change? Meet some artists who are making a difference through their art.
March 2017: Full STEAM Ahead
What do science, technology, engineering, and math have to do with making art? This month, families will explore these connections along with the creative process and our collections.
April 2017: Build It!
Did you know that the High Museum’s buildings were designed by two award-winning architects? Have you ever thought of a building as a work of art?
May 2017: Storytelling
Think of your favorite book—do the pictures help tell the story? We’ll examine works from our permanent collection that tell a story through objects and figures rather than words.
