Come join us for this fun-filled day of art-making for the whole family! Create art projects with renowned guest artists. Workshops will be suitable for children of different ages, and will include traditional fine arts and photography.

Authors Selina Alko and Eleni Gage will lead Story Time, and musical performances by students from NYC Guitar School will take place throughout the museum in the afternoon.

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