Especially for Kids

Public Art Scavenger Hunt | Creative Workshop Art Classes Brochure | Group Tours for your kid’s group

Here are just a few ideas to keep your little buddies curious and creative. Everything from Day Camps during school breaks and summer vacation to cool scavenger hunts that will keep them engaged while they’re visiting MAG. Ask about our new “Shorts” art classes for kids and adults.

You’ll also want to keep in the loop with our multiple Celebration Days. Admission is just a suggested $5 per family, and we offer the opportunity to learn about different cultures through dance, music, storytelling, and craft-making. Here’s a link to our upcoming Celebration Days.

Art Day Camp

Art Day Camp

Our fabulous all-day art camp is designed for children ages 6–12 during school breaks.
They enjoy high quality (and very fun) art projects, visits to the museum to see original works of art, lunch breaks and daily recreation breaks. Two age groupings—6–8 (junior) and 9–12 (senior)—allow kids to learn about art techniques, strategies and materials as they make art they can be proud of. Learn more (pdf)
