Art has always been a big part of who I am as a person and I have made it a priority to share that love with my kids. We have been exploring different art museums and exhibits around the city ever since they were old enough to know not to touch and destroy. Art has really been a great parenting tool that I love to use when teaching them the importance of individuality and respecting each others differences. Art teaches them diversity and expands their view of the world with each new piece. As we walk around museums I encourage them to ask questions. What do they see? What do they feel when looking at a certain painting. At the end we pick our favorite piece and write down the name of the artist. We then research the artist at home and talk about the type of art they do, wether its similar or different to the piece we liked. The Broad is definitely one of our favorite art museums in Los Angeles. It has a great open layout for kids to roam freely and not feel so constricted with tons of interactive features to keep them following along.

Cultural outings are such a great idea for littles. Exposing them to art and culture at an early age is essential in facilitating their development into well-rounded individuals. Next time your babiekins have the day off from school, take them to your local art museum or gallery!
