Art in the City

A young girl makes art at a table.

The Museum of the City of New York invites children ages 5-12 to our hands-on art making series, Art in the City. Lifting the range of materials used by artists in our centennial show, This is New York: 100 Years of the City in Art and Pop Culture, each session will introduce children to a different art form/medium, including mosaics, landscape painting, felt collage, and more. Through independent and collaborative material exploration, children will be able to build a personal connection to the observant and playful ways artists visualize stories of New York City

This art-making series is free with museum admission and geared towards children ages 5-12. Museum admission is by suggested donation for adults and free for ages 19 and under. Participating children must be accompanied by an adult. No previous artmaking experience is necessary. All materials will be provided.

Pre-registration is strongly recommended and can be completed using the registration links above. Registrants will receive a reminder email about the event.
