While Greater Reston Arts Center (GRACE) is closed to the public temporarily, we are pleased to offer opportunities to explore programs virtually. Please sign up for our newsletter for updates.

Explore More in the gallery

Explore More is a self-guided program designed for preschool and elementary-level children. Come explore the gallery through a Visual Scavenger Hunt and then make your own art work using a variety of available materials. Children take their creations home as a visual reminder of the day’s exploration. 

The Explore More! program is available whenever the gallery is open to the public (Tuesdays–Saturdays, 11am–5pm). You may drop in during gallery hours without a reservation. Larger groups should call to make a reservation (703-471-9242). This ensures proper working space for the art-making activities. Explore More is not available during exhibition installation periods. Parents or a responsible adult must be present for this program. $5 material fee per child.

Guided Group Visits and Field Trips

GRACE happily welcomes group visits! We can accommodate groups of varying sizes for tours and/or projects, with advance notice.

Guided tours are free. There is a $8 per student fee for projects.
