ArtSee family programs at the Barnes Foundation stir the imagination and generate excitement about art, architecture, and nature. Programs are designed for preschoolers, youth, and the entire family, and many are free. Family programs are designed for young people and their caregivers to experience the arts together.
ArtSee monthly themes allow us to explore different aspects of the collection from a variety of viewpoints.
