Learning Center Now

The Learning Center transforms seasonally with new projects and materials that extend, expand,
and deepen the gallery experience. Come see what the fun is all about!

The KMA introduces eye-level labels explaining art to kids in a fun, understandable way. Bring your child into the galleries and interpret the materials of art together. Also, pick up a themed interactive ImagineIt! bag to use around the KMA campus.
