Free Resources for At-Home Arts Education

Keep arts education thriving in your home by following along with CMA’s How-To Videos, which share step-by-step instructions for art projects that the whole family can do together, and curricula guides, which draw connections between interdisciplinary themes in CMA’s contemporary art exhibitions and classroom learning. Created by CMA Teaching Artists in conjunction with arts education professionals, these resources are offered free of charge and affirm CMA’s mission of making the arts accessible to all children and families.
