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.

Say goodbye to our exhibition When Home Won’t Let You Stay: Migration through Contemporary Art during its final weekend and join Boston-based Wee the People, a social justice project for kids, as they explore migration, home, and belonging through storytelling and making.

Our art making investigations are developed for all ages of children and adults to work together. All activities are drop-in, first come, first served, and space is limited.

Art Making
