Children & Families
Students will explore classical art traditions and contemporary art concepts while experimenting with a variety of art media to create original works of art. Inspired by gallery visits, the museum landscape, and layers of art history, students will enjoy a summer filled with art. Registration for members will open online on February 20th, and not-yet members can register on March 4th.
Join us Saturday mornings in the Museum’s Golding-Scher Classroom for Art Spot. The free drop-in program offers children and families a chance to share a creative moment making art projects inspired by works of art on display in the galleries. There is a different facilitator-guided project each week designed by art instructors to be fun and fulfilling for all ages.
Every Saturday 11:00am – 2:00pm. Free. No registration required.
Looking for a fun day out with the family?

Each Family Day highlights a different exhibition on view, so be sure to join us throughout the year.

Gallery Activity Cards
Want to know more?
Families and individuals are encouraged to enrich their gallery experience with specially designed gallery activity cards. Activities relate to highlights of selected current exhibitions, and are designed to be completed as a group or individually. Pick up a card or two at the reception desk before you head up to the galleries, and be sure to grab a pencil if you don’t have one (as pens are not permitted in the galleries). Gallery activity cards are free and fun!
For the past 10 years Art Space has partnered with a number of community organizations to provide quality engagement with the visual arts to economically and environmentally disadvantaged youths. Art Space Partners work with Museum Education Department staff to design individualized programming which may include gallery visits, hands-on experience in the classroom, and offsite visits. Partners include The Spring, Prodigy at University Area Community Development Corporation, and Starting Right, Now. This program is by invitation only. Organizations interested in being considered should contact Kessanda Abel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
