Family Art Adventures is a monthly program targeted at families and comprised of inquiry and discussion in the galleries. Each program has a theme and visits three to five works of art relating to that theme. The programs strive to create a sense of ownership in visitors to the museum, build bridges between museum and family life, help visitors achieve their most realized selves, embrace and leverage the unique and distinctive objects in the museum and build inter and intra family community. This essay answers the questions: why offer programs for families? and why have those programs in the art museum? It will discuss the purpose of inquiry and activity in family programs and how these tools help the museum reach the educator’s goals. The appendix contains all the lessons used in the Family Art Adventures program. Most of the activities can easily be transferred to other works of art in other museums. The lessons may be used as templates and are provided to be used and built on.
