Hand's On Art



Come to the KMA on select school vacation days and join teaching artists for unique art projects inspired by the works on view. Children ages 3-6 participate with an adult; 7 and older can participate on their own, although parent/caregiver must remain at the Museum

Check our Events calendar for upcoming dates



Engage with the Museum from home. We invite you to explore the different ways we can bring the Museum experience to you! Family activities, crafts, and resources about the natural world that you can try at home, for children and parents. Share your projects on our Instagram and Facebook accounts and tag #KatonahMuseumAtHome.
