The Boone Children's Gallery is a place for kids and families to learn about brush painting and art from Korea and China, and create their own works of art together.

Enjoy Story Time, featuring folk-tales and age-appropriate stories for kids, every Monday and Friday at 2 pm in the Korean art galleries adjacent to the Boone Children's Gallery.

Special in the Boone Children’s Gallery: Square Word Calligraphy Classroom

December 20, 2014-July 26, 2015

You are invited to pick up a brush to practice a style of calligraphy invented by contemporary Chinese artist Xu Bing. Look closely as you write in his tracing books to discover that the words are actually written in English but in the style of Chinese calligraphy. Imitate the brush strokes to create your own square words!
