Family Play Days

Play Days at the CMA are free opportunities for families to be creative, be curious, and connect through art together. Events include music, storybook readings, games, and art making for the whole family. Each event has a theme that relates to an exhibition, artist, or artworks in the CMA's collection.  

My Very First Art Class

Young children and their favorite grown-up are introduced to art, the museum, and verbal and visual literacy in this playful program. Each class features exploration in the classroom, a gallery visit, and art making. Wear your paint clothes! New topics each class.

Summer Creativity Camps

Play and experiment in these fun, art-filled camps bursting with engaging gallery games and hands-on activities. Camps will take place on-site at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Campers will spend their mornings exploring art in the galleries with the CMA’s gallery teachers and afternoons flexing their creativity muscles making art in our classrooms.

Studio Programs for Children

Join experienced practicing artists in our studios to play with ideas and materials while developing skills and techniques.

Engage and Create
