Art Studio – open 10:30 AM – 1:00 PM

The projects in the Art Studio connect and are inspired by the traveling exhibits in the museum as well as cultural holidays. Children discover colors and explore artists from around the world. In February, children who visit the art studio will engage with the works and art mediums of prominent African American artists including Carrie Mae Weems and Kara Walker.

Build It Lab – open 10:30 AM-1:00 PM

Children will enjoy this supervised space where they have access to real tools and materials needed to spark creativity, nurture curious minds, and ignite the next wave of innovators. Woodworking and other popular maker skills encourage visitors to be curious, creative and innovative. As part of CMA’s celebration of Black History Month, guests who visit the Build It Lab will learn about the legacy of Garrett Augustus Morgan, the inventor of the traffic signal. Using wood and paper, children will create their own traffic light to take home, while exploring the circuitry used to light up traffic lights in Atlanta and cities around the world!
