Picture Person

The Picture Person Program offers kits containing reproduction prints of fine art. These kits are intended for use by parent volunteers presenting art to children in schools and homeschools participating in the Picture Person Program. Check out the links below for a list of kits available and information about availability and policies.

Picture Person is an art appreciation program for elementary and middle schools. Schools provide their own parent volunteers (presenters) and a coordinator to work with the museum. The museum  lends out art print packages, and provides support year round. The program includes more than 80 different sets of print packages containing reproduction artwork and background information about the artwork, including discussion questions and activity ideas.
