Kids & Families

Introducing children to the joys of art and culture early can be such a blessing for academic and emotional development, because it really sparks curiosity and creative thinking! We try to make this journey into the arts as interactive and engaging for children as we can with exciting programmes, workshops and a host of family-friendly resources. Bring your family to MAP and spend the day discovering and engaging with art in new and fun ways!
