Discover MAP

For the curiously minded.
Explore the museum’s collections in the comfort of your home and learn about art through games, fun activities and more.

 

The Discover MAP series explores the museum’s collections through select artists, mediums and themes. Learn through our artist introductions on our blog, get your kids involved by downloading our resource pack which includes a PowerPoint presentation, colouring sheets and more for them to explore on their own while engaging in a range of creative activities including drawing and storytelling.

The resources are best suited for self-directed learning from ages 10 and up. If your kids are younger, make sure you’re around to help them. Or better yet, make it a family bonding activity and do it with them! It’s never too late to have fun or learn. We believe in doing both.
