Children & Family Programs

 

The National Museum of Mexian Art offers children (ages 4-12) and families the opportunity to learn about art and culture through our weekend, after-school and summer classes.  Class themes are tied to our permanent and temporary exhibitions and integrate the galleries into the learning experience.  Fees vary by class and include art materials.

Reservations are required for all children programs.  Registration for 2019 summer camp begins on March 1.  To register your child for any of the classes or for more information on class offerings, please call 312-433-3941.

School Programs

The NMMA’s school programs are designed to be a learning experience integrating a regular K-12 classroom’s curriculum and Museum-developed art and culture-based units.  These programs are offered at the Museum and at individual classrooms for little or no cost. Many of the schools the Education Department serves become long-term partners in increasing student learning and academic achievement.
