    Interactive Opportunities

    Throughout the galleries you’ll find places to participate and interact – where you can contemplate, connect with, and create based on what you’ve experienced. Just look for the green 'C'. We also have a new space, called the Cross Hatch, that has interactive creative projects for all ages opening in January 2019.

    Gallery Guides

    Learn about art with scavenger hunts and other activities that keep children engaged while touring the galleries. With our family-friendly gallery guides, you'll see the fun side of art.

Join Gladys' Gang!

Gladys’ Gang is designed for children ages 2-5 and their caregivers. There are two sessions each month, divided into toddler and preschool audiences (siblings are welcome at both!).

Each month enjoy a story, gallery time, and an age-appropriate studio activity that emphasizes the process of art-making rather than the final product. It's free!

Summer Camps

The CMA offers a variety of unique camps to capture the interest of any young artist. 

Having your child participate in our summer camps is a great way for them to think creatively, practice problem-solving skills, and have fun!
