Kids Create is a monthly art program for school-aged children, designed to inspire creativity and an appreciation for the art of miniatures.

Now in its 12th year, our Kids Create Family Fun Program is an opportunity to get in on the fun of making miniatures. Kids Create takes place the 2nd Saturday of every month.

Each session registration includes a kit with most materials for that session. Basic crafting tools such as scissors are not included. You may wish to add additional materials of your own.

Kits can be purchased in advance online or at the museum the day of the program while supplies last. Members must log into the website to receive their discount.

Registration is required for this program. See our FAQs for complete program details.
