Homeschool Travels - Dallas Museum of Art
Nestled in Dallas is a great Art Museum!! And best of all, you can visit for free!
They have a wonderful family area with various activities set up for the kids to do. The girls love to sketch.
The art ranged from classic to modern. We all really liked this piece.
We were doing a red scavenger hunt through the museum. We were tracking how much red each person could spot in the art. We were all excited to walk into a red room and seen this screen.
Thought this mirror was so pretty....oh and I had to document that I wear more than t-shirts and sweats.
More red...check out the size of that bed!
It was fun to see so many works of art in person, instead of just in books.
We had learned about cowrie shells and African traditions. They had these really neat hats from Ancient Africa on display.
Exploring canopic jars.
And the mummy
Caty and I being silly
Bring on our Ferris Bueller.
The outside in the arts district was very pretty.
This is such a great art museum. We have visited some extensive collections this past year, but we truly enjoyed getting lost ...yeah it's easy to get lost in this museum. The art was beautiful and the activities were great.
I highly recommend a visit to the Dallas Art Museum. Great family day!
