In the 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 is happy to welcome families to the Museum in a safe and fun way. When you sign up online for a time slot to visit the KMA, add a reservation to the Learning Center for the same time block as your Museum tickets. Upon check-in you will receive a Family Guide and Activity Pack with everything you need to enjoy your visit and create your own artwork.

The Katonah Museum of Art’s Social Story (download PDF; also available at the front desk) helps prepare children and their families for their visit to the Museum – great for visitors with children on the autism spectrum, first-time visitors, and anyone who likes to prepare for being in a new environment.
Bring the inspiration of the Learning Center to your home with Art Where You Are projects.

Still Life Studio

March 16 – June 27, 2021

This spring learn about what makes a still life in our Learning Center’s interactive Still Life Studio. Learn about the still life genre and why such an old art form continues to inspire contemporary artists. Discover an unexpected paper-built still life installation by artist Daniel Gordon. Objects will be available to set up your own still life arrangement with various art materials to create unique still life artworks. Make sure to reserve a time slot for the Learning Center when booking your Museum tickets online. Upon arrival, young visitors will receive an interactive family guide and activity pack at the front desk which will lead them through the Still/Live exhibition in the galleries. Look out for fun at-home and in-person still life activities that KMA’s education team will be sharing throughout the season.
