ARTplay is a new monthly column written by Marianne Ruggiero, Coordinator of Family Programs at The RISD Museum.



Various themes and activities will introduce kids and parents to the museum’s collection both online and off. Each month Kidoinfo will help spark your children’s interest in art — they can learn about different works at the museum and download a related activity to create offline. Then make sure to visit the museum and explore the art in person. On Free-for-All Saturdays (the last Saturday of every month), kids can continue their exploration through a variety of hands-on workshops, performances, videos, and special gallery quests throughout the day.
