Colors and Shapes

Colors and shapes are all around us. We might see a stop sign, but we might also see it as an octagon. The sun is a circle; the roof of a house, a triangle. Even our own face is made up of different shapes. As you go through the museum sit down with your child in front of some works of art and use the downloadable shape and color cards to see if you can spot them within the art! After your visit, try one of our home activities to create your own art using colors and shapes!
