CMA Family Day 2018
Benefitting CMA’s Free Community Programs
BE PART OF THE FAMILY!

Sunday, May 20th
12:00PM – 4:00PM
at Children’s Museum of the Arts

Come join us for this fun-filled day of art-making for the whole family! Create collaborative art projects throughout the Museum with renowned guest artists and CMA Teaching Artists. Take part in workshops suitable for children of different ages, including traditional fine arts, media/animation, and photography. This year’s guest artists include Elissa Levy, Dustin Yellin, and many more!

Celebrity guest artists join WEE staff for Music and Story Time. Delicious snacks will be provided for all our young artists. Parents are invited to place their bids on unique experience items in our on-site auction. We invite you to come create with us!

Family Day supports CMA’s Community Programs, which bring high-quality arts education to vulnerable children throughout New York City. These programs serve children on the autism spectrum, those with physical disabilities, children living in transitional housing, families in the NYC child welfare system, and Title 1 School group visits. Your support during this event helps allow families to access these vital resources free of charge.

Along the entire length of Charlton Street, CMA Kids Fair is back for the third year in a row!

This street festival happens from 11:00AM – 4:00PM and is open to the general public. It features recreational activities and collaborative art workshops by CMA Teaching Artists, as well as tents and tables featuring local artisanal and family-friendly businesses. All CMA Family Day ticket holders will have priority access to select street fair activities.
