  1. This is really fun and informative! I know I LOVED Picasso when I was little 🙂 And I still do!

      Me, too! I love the bright colors. I’m also a fan of some other artists with bold colors and unusual designs. Love showing these to the kids to get their take. Each has their favorite!

  2. These are such a good idea. Thanks for the recommendations. I’m gong to get some of these for my nieces. They can learn about art and different places. Very cool.

  3. You’re never too old to learn. Also, you’re never too young to learn. This is a great eye-opener for all parents who think children only need Disneyland trips till they’re teens.

  4. Love that you have your kids out there, exploring, and learning about art & culture. It’ll provide such a great foundation for them and a great perspective of the world as they grow up.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      Thank you! We love showing our kids the world and watching them grow and explore. Showing kids the world will open their eyes to tolerance and help them become global citizens! I appreciate you stopping by!

  5. I might have bigger issues to convince myself to visit art museums. So it might be the task of a future kid to convince me. Instead of the opposite to convince the kid. 🙂

    • NatalieTanner says:

      LOL! That is so funny! Not everyone enjoys art in the same way. I think part of the fun is to see the differences. Modern art can lead to some really cool discussions. OR just hit the museum to see the ‘famous’ one – then you’ll feel all ‘cultured’ and get to skip the rest. 🙂

  6. This is great! I am sure it is difficult to get most kids to enjoy art but it will teach them so much so these tips are really good!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      You know, it is so interesting how much kids love art. Art appreciation doesn’t have to be stuff – sometimes appreciating art means finding the silly and goofy. Kids love that part especially!

    Wow, there are really a lot of resources out there to teach kids about art! I enjoyed art class when I was a kid, but I honestly don’t enjoy visiting art museums. I like obscure museums instead.

    • NatalieTanner says:

      I like the off the beaten path stuff, too! Recently I visited the Museum of Death in New Orleans…Yes, there is such a thing and yes it is even creepier than you think. Honestly….kind of wish I hadn’t visited that one!! But, you never know! Sometimes the off the beaten path stuff is so cool!

    I don’t have kids (yet!) but love seeing blogs that cater to the younger generation. It is so important to educate kids on history, art, architecture etc. Something that school can hardly teach them. Empowering their minds to be more creative! Great post.

    This is a fun art trip for kids! I would go even as an adult 🙂 Thanks for the tip.

    Interesting ways to get the kids interested, I know that the Louvre did the trick for mine. The other ideas are also, amazing…should try those.

  11. Luca says:

    Soooo many things to see in Paris, art related. Everything around could be worth seeing! I like your tips for kids, I know that sometimes they tend to be bored inside a museum, but if you find the right leverage, they’ll be amazed!

    Great collection. I believe it is not hard to inculcate good taste in kids. They just need to rght kind of material lke these ones in front of them instead of borng text books.

  13. Louvre is not just amazing for kids but it is amazing for people of all age groups. I am highly fascinated by the architecture of Louvre and the arts preserved and protected inside this enormous sanctity. Loved the entire compilation.

  14. I did not know Picasso was the one who created the Collage. I saw the Mona Lisa for the first time when I was a kid too. Even though I was not very impressed by the Mona Lisa then or now, I still love visiting art museums around the world. It is important that kids are taught from an early age. So many great books too.

  15. What a great idea, there is so much art in Paris, its nice to have the kids interested as well. I really like the ones where they can paint their own versions of famous pictures or spot the difference. In fact I would love to do some of these myself!

  16. Adam Biernat says:

    Such a nice post 🙂 So many fantastic books! They are so cool and for sure not just for kids 🙂 I would love to have some of them.

  17. Those kids books are fantastic. I think kids really do enjoy Picasso because i remember seeing a poicasso as a kid and i liked it because i knew the name and he has a distinct style that is kind of silly to kids. I think it is so memorable that kids lije his art.

  18. People are never old to learn something, I think these are great idea!! Paris is the city of art and romanticism, it could be fun for kids as well!! Thank you for all these recommendation

    aw i love this post! I feel like kids are often forgotten when it comes to arts and cultures. This is a great reminder to also educate our children and to educate them early so that they grow up with an appreciation of the arts!

    • NatalieTanner says:

      They are and I’m not sure why? They are little sponges and have such curiosity! It is easy and fun to see things through their eyes. Thanks for stopping by.

  20. I think this is very fun and informative. Sometimes, we adults need this kind of thing too. It will also be like a refresher course of the great master’s art pieces! Paris is such a perfect place for this.

    […] Art comes alive when you know the story behind the art. Teach the kids the mythological, religious, or political statement behind the art. Otherwise the museum is room after room after room of naked statues and somber paintings. […]
