Family Programs

The Cantor Arts Center announces a new Family Sundays program.
Second Sundays, launching October 9, is a free, family-focused day of art talks, hands-on art making, and gallery adventures for visitors of all ages. No registration or standing in line is required, and families can tailor their museum experience based on the activities that interest them the most. Second Sundays occurs on the second Sunday of each month from 11 am to 4 pm.
 
SECOND SUNDAYS: Pick up a Family Sunday schedule at the main-lobby desk to see what’s happening each Sunday.

 

Spotlights: Explore art objects in the galleries with a docent at 12, 1, 2, and 3 pm.
 
Drop-in Studio: Experiment with art materials and new techniques by participating in a hands-on art making experience. All visitors, regardless of age, ability, or familiarity with the creative process, are encouraged to participate. From 11 am to 4 pm, registration is not required and visitors can work at their own pace.
 
Art Packs: Check out an Art Pack that includes themed activities for visitors of all ages and materials for sketching while visiting the galleries.
 
Highlights Guide for Families: Explore the museum at your own pace with a little help from a curated list of family-friendly highlights in the museum collection.

 

OTHER SUNDAYS:
Family Sundays will continue to offer a variety of self-guided and family-focused activities—including Pop-up Art-Making Activities led by our Family Sunday Ambassadors—that encourage families to explore the museum together. Pick up a Family Sunday schedule at the main-lobby desk to see what’s happening each Sunday.

 

Spotlights: Explore art objects in the galleries with a docent at 12, 1, 2, and 3 pm.

Pop-Up Art-Making: check schedule at the main-lobby desk.
Enjoy creating art with Family Sunday Ambassadors. Sessions are offered on a pop-up basis on Family Sundays at 12:30 pm, 1:30 pm, and 2:30 pm. Pop-ups last 20 minutes

EVERY DAY (except Tuesday)
Families are always welcome at the museum. Art Packs are available every day at the main-lobby desk and include gallery adventures and activities for visitors of all ages, materials for sketching in the galleries, and Highlights Guides for Families.
