Exploring Phoenix Art Museum with children can be especially rewarding. It presents an opportunity to share ideas and personal opinions, surprise each other, and discover the world through artists’ eyes. Make the most of your next visit with guests of all ages – and for however you define family – with interactive, meaningful, and fun art experiences.

Make It!


Make It! is a hands-on art-making space for all ages and abilities. Join Phoenix-based artists and museum staff to be inspired by works of art from the Museum’s collection or current exhibitions. Each month features a different object and art-making technique, and a chance to explore new materials, perspectives, and ways of connecting with art.


Make It! occurs once a month. Wednesday session is open to the public during Pay-What-You-Wish Wednesdays.
