Art for Kids 

If your kid loves bright colors and crazy critters, take them to today's Bravo Barcelona! Family Day at the Cleveland Museum of Art. The event offers a lesson in shapes courtesy of Miró and explores colors through Picasso. The kids also get to put together miniversions of Gaudi's towering cathedrals at hands-on workstations. "We want to give families an access point to great art," says CMA education-department spokeswoman Shannon Masterson. The Miró workshop encourages children to explore form and color by putting together collages based on the painter's amorphous masterpieces. "There is a certain dimensionality in his works you don't really get by just drawing," says Masterson. Also, family tours take visitors through the museum's Barcelona and Modernity exhibit, in addition to introducing them to costumed characters based on the museum's most famous paintings — like Picasso's harlequin or Monet's water lilies. "It's OK to let art be a part of your family life," says Masterson. "This is a great way to start a good habit."
