For Beginners...

Look what I learned

An introduction to the Gallery, it offers fun facts, a chance to compare paintings, as well as a tapestry to color and a favorite animal to draw to unleash the inner artist.

Eye of the Artist

Artists must be good observers of the world to paint and sculpt. Develop your detective skills and see and observe as much as you can with “The Eye of the Artist.”

For Intermediates...

Wordy Word of Art

A picture is worth 1,000 words, and we’ve got a bunch of ‘em in here! Crossword puzzles, word searches, and anagrams abounding with artsy vocabulary will entertain you and have you impressing your friends with your newfound language skills in no time.

Scavenger Hunt

Put on your hiking shoes and thinking caps, boys and girls; it’s time for a Scavenger Hunt at the Norton! Are you eagle-eyed enough to find all the elephants in the tapestry? Can you stretch your brain to figure out which painting is the oldest? Come and play (and take good notes!) *Really requires a Gallery visit to view the art work.

For Advanced...

Meet the European Artists

Explore the works and extraordinary names of our European artists! Discover who painted what and where an exotic name might be hidden in the word search. Don’t forget to submit your favorite quote for the “What is the Thinker Thinking?” game.

Meet a few of the American Artists

It’s time to meet a few of the artists on display in the Gallery. Learn about A.A. Weinman, sculptor, Albert Bierstadt, painter,  and John James Audubon, painter and naturalist, through word games and puzzles.
