Open Studio Fridays at the National Portrait Gallery


It doesn’t get any better for kids and families than the Smithsonian Institution’s National Portrait Gallery. The Gallery tells the story of famous Americans and their mark on our culture through visual and performing arts by portraying the people who shape the nation’s history, present, and future. Icons featured include George Washington, Babe Ruth, Martin Luther King Jr., Marilyn Monroe and others. Thoroughly enjoyable permanent exhibitions include historical and cultural figures in America ranging from the 1600’s through the 20th century.

Join the National Portrait Gallery for Open Studio Fridays to give kids a great way to get creative and to learn about art. Together with the Gallery’s Portrait Discovery Kits, Open Studio Fridays gives kids 4 to 14 a first-hand, interactive opportunity to learn about portraiture through the creative process. Hosted by the Gallery’s Education Center, Open Studio Fridays are typically held weekly. Learn more.
