K-12 School Groups

The CMA's education programs are recognized for their curriculum-based approach. See all of our programs for K-12 students.

Interactive gallery tours based on the museum's art collection or temporary exhibitions can be combined with hands-on creative projects in the studios. All school groups, including self-guided groups, must have a reservation.

Boyd Plaza, in front of the museum, is a lovely spot for enjoying bag lunches on sunny days. Finlay Park, located one block from the museum, is also a great location.
