TAKE-HOME PROJECT BAGS!

Project Bags contain materials and instructions for projects inspired by works in our collection. We are offering these bags free of charge while our in-person programming for kids is suspended. 

Here’s how it works: Fill out the online registration form here.  We will email you to let you know your bag is ready. You can pick it up from the table in the lobby of Museum during the Museum’s open hours. Please practice social distancing when picking up your bag. 

HELP KEEP PROJECT BAGS FREE!

Since beginning the Take-Home Project Bag initiative, the Museum has distributed over 4,000 project bags to individual families and local schools! We are asking any who are able to make a donation - small or large - to help keep this vital project going and as accessible as possible to all in our community who request it. 

Simply select "Education" from the drop-down list on our online donation form. We appreciate your generosity and partnership in helping deliver this art-making program in our community! 

PRE-K OPEN STUDIOS - CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE


Bring your littlest artist for some FREE hands-on fun! Each week, you and your child can make your mark using a variety of tools and materials in an exploratory open-studio setting. Drop in once or come every week! These sessions are designed for kids ages 3-5 with a caregiver.  

PRE-K PROJECT DAYS - CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE


Pre-K Project Days are for kids ages 3-5 with a caregiver. Sessions begin with a story and continue with a related art project designed to feed your young child’s imagination!  Pre-registration is required and the fee is $5 per participating child. 


FAMILY ART LAB & BOOK NOOK - CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE

Located in the Museum’s Education Wing, the Family Art Lab and Book Nook are interactive spaces where children can explore art on their own terms—by touching, building and pretending. Full of blocks, magnatiles, books, art games and more, the Family Art Lab can provide a break during a Museum visit or be a destination in itself. The Book Nook is a quiet space where kids can peruse our fantastic collection of children’s art books. We invite families to be creative together in these spaces designed just for them!
