Kids rule the ICA the last Saturday of every month, when the museum fills up with fun, creative, and even zany activities for kids and adults to do together.

Investigate making art and movement by exploring William Forsythe’s Choreographic Objects and creating artwork inspired by actions and poses.

Family art making activities

Don’t miss out on these hands-on art making investigations for children and adults to do together. Note: very young children will need adult guidance. All activities are drop-in, first-come, first served, and space is limited. 

Making Collage Stories, 10:30-4pm
