We believe in the power of the arts.
We partner with Washington, DC-based artists to provide arts programming and opportunities for children and families to explore creative collaboration. These offerings will complement the wonder of the Museum experience, spark creativity and curiosity within young learners, and draw inspiration from the Museum’s STEAM exhibits.
