About Children's Museum of the Arts
Named as one of six great museums in NYC for kids by CBS New York, Children's Museum of the Arts has nurtured the artistic talents of youngsters since 1988. Tucked amid one of the city's most culture-rich neighborhoods, the SoHo facility's 10,000 square feet of galleries host three annual exhibitions by established and emerging contemporary artists, as well as children's work from the museum's permanent collection.
Beyond reverence for the arts, each showing is designed to inspire kids to create their own work through the museum's nonprofit hands-on art program which hosts kids who range from 10 months to 15 years old. At the Fine Art Studio, for instance, teaching artists help students make their own paintings and drawings, while visitors to the Clay Bar sculpt creatures out of colorful clay. The complementary WEE Arts Studio also hosts age-appropriate workshops for kids ages 5 and younger, who can experiment with painting, drawing, drumming, story telling, and music. Elsewhere, kids can experiment with voiceover and music production in the Sound Booth or direct their own stop-motion shorts in the Media Lab. Along with its general hours workshops, the museum offers summer and school break camps and after-school classes in a wide variety of disciplines, as well as school group visits and partnerships and free community programs.
