Studio Sunday

Studio Sunday is a play-based experience for multi-generational visitors to learn new skills and ideas together in a semi-structured art studio and gallery-based environment. Studio Sunday is a drop-in program that takes place the first Sunday of every month from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm. Each Studio Sunday is unique, free with museum admission and open to anyone ages 5 and up.

MADreads is a literacy-based program for children and their adult companions that nurtures a love of reading by bringing books to life by connecting their themes to artworks. MADreads is a mix of interactive story time, a gallery visit, and visual exploration that is fun for the whole family! MADreads takes place on during Studio Sunday from 10:00 am to 11:00 am and is free with museum admission.
