Children's Museum of the Arts is a nonprofit arts facility that brings hands-on art programming to children throughout New York City. CMA's staff of practicing teaching artists guide young artists ages 10 months to 15 years through viewing contemporary artwork, making fun art projects in our studios, and sharing their artwork with classmates and loved ones. Ranging in skill levels, techniques, and mediums, our projects aim to get kids thinking and creating in new and engaging ways.
**PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to ensure a safe and healthy environment for our community, CMA will temporarily close to the public starting Saturday, March 14.
We wish to reiterate that there are no confirmed cases of Coronavirus connected to the Museum. As a community gathering space for children of all ages — as well as parents, grandparents, educators, artists, and community leaders — we take seriously our role in preventing the spread of the disease, as well as protecting the well-being of our staff.
A thorough cleaning of the Museum is underway. We are currently planning to move forward with late spring and summer programming as planned, and we eagerly look forward to welcoming you and your family back to the Museum in the very near future!**
CMA does not have an on-site lunch space for students. Many schools like to visit James J. Walker Park for lunch, which is 3 blocks away from the museum.
CMA has five single bathrooms located off the main gallery.
