Children

The Modern’s unique programs for children emphasize learning through direct observation of art and thoughtful art activities inspired by the permanent collection and special exhibitions. Area artists, museum docents, and education staff design and lead these programs, introducing children to some of the complex and challenging concepts and practices behind modern and contemporary art.

Drawing from the Collection for Children
This free program for children is led by an artist who takes participants through informal drawing exercises in relation to works in the collection.

Public Tours
Docent-led tours of art on view at the Modern are offered Tuesday through Sunday at 2 pm. A public tour focused on architecture is available on the first Saturday of each month at 11 am. A Spanish-language tour is available on the first Sunday of each month at 2 pm. These tours do not require prior arrangements and begin in the Museum lobby.
 
10 Pages
Free sketchbooks for children are available at the information desk. Ten Pages are for you to use to record your ideas and inspirations while looking at works of art in the Modern's galleries.
