Kids Create is a monthly art program for elementary school-aged kids to inspire creativity and an appreciation for the art of miniatures.
Drop in with us each month to make a different miniature project to take home.
We request a minimum of two weeks advance notice for groups with 10 or more children planning to participate in Kids Create to ensure we have enough supplies. Group leaders should contact our Education Director, Mackenzie Massman, at 520-881-0606 ext. 113 or by email.
Kids Create takes place at the museum from 12pm–3pm the second Saturday of the month otherwise noted. See schedule below.
Children must be accompanied by an adult.
This program is included with museum admission or free for Museum Members.
