The National Gallery of Art
ASL at the NGA: An Introduction to the National Gallery Collection
The monthly ASL at the NGA tour is coming up on Sunday, June 12 at 1:00 pm. The tour meets in the Rotunda of the West Building of the National Gallery of Art.
The tour is also interpreted into spoken English so all are welcome!
NEW! Stories in Art sessions to be offered entirely in ASL this summer!
Stories in Art introduces children (ages 4 to 7) to artists through careful looking, storytelling, and hands-on experimentation. Led by museum educators, each program includes reading a children’s book, exploring one work of art in the galleries, and completing a simple, hands-on activity. Each program is approximately 60 minutes.
Summer Story Series: Discover Dutch Art
Would you like to visit the Netherlands this summer? Pack your imagination and travel to the National Gallery of Art! You’ll visit a windmill, sail the seas, discover mince pie, and listen to a concert. Participants learn about landscapes, still life, seascapes, and scenes of interior Dutch life by reading children’s books, looking at 17th-century Dutch art, and making a souvenir to document each adventure. You will receive a passport to the summer story series and a stamp for each program attended. If you collect all four stamps at the end of the summer, you will receive a prize!
