We are reviewing our family programs and testing self-guided activities for adults and children. Families are welcome to visit our new space located next to our cafe, the Cities of Tomorrow Art Lab for self-guided art activities. The interactive space allows kids and adults to engage with exhibition topics at the Museum and contribute their own creativity and perspective. Visitors to the Art Lab go beyond looking and talking about art, as they write, draw, make, and playfully explore a variety of activities. Activities are available in Braille, English, Spanish, Bengali, and Mandarin. Happy art making!
The Queens Museum offers weekly Drop-in Family Art Workshops on Sundays from 1:30 pm-4:30 pm that are free with suggested museum admission. No advance registration is necessary. If you would like to know what we are making, please make sure you check our events page before you come. Family workshops take place in one of our art studios and different locations throughout the museum each week, please ask our admissions desk where to go.
These fun, educational workshops invite children ages 4 and up, and their adult companions to take part in a shared learning experience that take visitors into our galleries and art studios. Activities offer families the opportunity to reflect on the artworks presented in Museum exhibitions as they work collaboratively to create unique works of their own with a variety of different materials. The art projects are as wildly diverse as the Queens Museum’s dynamic permanent and changing exhibitions. From building monsters to designing city blocks to making puppets, the art works are created by adults and children together under the guidance of skilled and caring teaching artists and a team of youth assistants from our Queens Teens program.
Family Art Workshops accommodate diverse learners and are accessible to families with children with special needs and English Language Learners. For more information about Family Art Workshops at the Queens Museum please contact us at 718.592.9700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
