Create art in our camps!

shaping the next generation of leaders

at the new children’s museum, we believe play and art-making promote the skills that our future leaders need: creativity, confidence, problem-solving, interpersonal skills, critical thinking, collaboration and optimism.

our programs and events engage and inspire


the theory of change
— why play & art matters

Art inspires innovation

We believe that all children should have access to the creative process and arts of the highest quality. We believe the arts play a critical role in children’s creative, emotional and intellectual development.
