This summer, we're offering a slate of new online courses to enjoy from home.
Since we can’t gather at the Barnes right now, we’re bringing the live performances and artist conversations to you on Instagram. Catch the next session on your mobile device Thursday, August 13, at 4pm.
Performers from past programs, like flamenco dancer Elba Hevia y Vaca, are sharing their creative spirit.
Learn (ages 7 and up)
Barnes Art Adventures is our new interactive educational program streaming on Twitch.tv. Designed by Barnes educators for grades 3 and up, the program brings art and artists directly to students.
Every episode, our educators are joined by talented guest artists.
We've updated our search! You can still browse objects by light, line, color, and space, inspired by Dr. Barnes's approach to looking at art. Now you can also search by artist, culture, year, and even gallery room.
We're always trying to learn more about our history and the art in our collection. Read about intriguing theories and recent discoveries from our team of curators, scholars, conservators, and archivists.
Create (ages 3–12)
Introducing at-home activity sheets. Kids and their adults can create art and learn from artists and objects in the Barnes collection.
Here’s a fun way to connect with the Barnes collection—staff-selected songs that bring a masterpiece to mind!
