The Fairfield University Art Museum offers a wonderful educational opportunity for homeschool students of all ages, with a collection ranging from a Bronze age armband to contemporary Japanese ceramic sculptures. Visit the glory of ancient Greece with casts of Parthenon sculptures, or learn about “selfies” through European portraits. Remember to stop by the museum office for colored pencils and activity sheets.
Special exhibitions only increase the fun! Explore the drawings of 19th-century Native Americans in Picturing History: Ledger Drawings of the Plains Indians (Bellarmine Hall Galleries, until Dec. 20), or dive into the colorful exuberance of a contemporary Connecticut artist in Richard Lytle: A Retrospective (Walsh Gallery, until Feb. 3). Whether you visit on a self-guided tour or on a group tour with a museum curator, the Fairfield University Art Museum is an adventure waiting to be discovered.
The Bellarmine Hall Galleries are open Tuesday to Friday, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The Walsh Gallery is open Wednesday to Saturday from 12 noon to 4:00 p.m. On select Saturdays, Family Day programs offer engaging child-friendly gallery talks and drop in craft activities for children ages 4-10!
