Family Programs

KIDS ROCKWELL believes museums act as community centers – a place for safe and authentic arts experiences for all audiences. Your family will love connecting with the art on our walls through imaginative, engaging workshops and programs.


Lil Rockwell

Lil Rockwell creates opportunities to explore art-viewing and art-making for our littlest visitors and their caregivers. During different months, you’ll find either an art class suitable for children 18 mo-4 years; a story hour for children of all ages; or a stroller walk, where even infants can participate! Lil Rockwell occurs on the first Thursday of every month except for September. Sure to make your little ones happy, and for the grown-ups – we have coffee!
