Children’s Tours - Saturday and Sunday – 1pm and 3pm:

(Children under age 6 must be accompanied by an adult and children over age 6 can be dropped off.)

The children's tour will discuss the subject matter in the case of figuration and color, form and mood for abstraction. We work with children to create their own artwork inspired by what they see, for example small children may mimic the poses of sculptural figures and then make their own miniature sculptures out of materials ranging from stickers to small toys.  Older children receive more art historical information and are provided with more sophisticated materials such as photogram paper to make interesting artworks of their own. 

CHILDREN'S ART CENTER

The Children’s Art Center will provide a safe playroom on-site at Art Miami for children ages 3-13, who are introduced to art while their parents visit the fairs. Children enrolled in the program will have exclusive access to participate in activities including art explorations, games, puzzles and storytelling.

Kids Center will be open Wednesday through Saturday, 11am-6pm, Sunday 11am-5pm.
