Kids' programs

Programs for kids at the Guggenheim encourage deep connection with works of art and artistic expression. Taught by artists and museum educators who use a wide range of mediums in order to allow experimentation and foster creativity, these programs are designed for ages 8–11 years old.

Please feel free to contact 212 423 3637 if you have any questions.

Museum-based student programs are supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. Additional support is provided by The Barker Welfare Foundation and The Seth Sprague Educational and Charitable Foundation.

Does your child love to explore and create art? Then sign up for our after-school program! Your child can experience the museum’s spectacular Frank Lloyd Wright–designed architecture and permanent collection as well as our special exhibitions. Each session’s gallery visit serves as inspiration for in-depth art projects in the studio. Your child will learn about a wide range of techniques, including painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, collage, and photography. The program concludes with a mini-exhibition for family and friends.

Fee: $300 ($250 for members), which includes all art materials, snacks, a family pass, and photos documenting the program.
