C3 Spaces for Kids


Arturo's Nest  (0-4 year olds)

A relaxed learning place for children ages 4 and under and their adult companions, Arturo's Nest is a "please touch" space where young children can crawl, climb, and use their natural curiosity and playfulness to have early experiences with art. This month in Arturo's Nest, you will find toys, games, puzzles, and books that allow you to explore Imaginary Worlds. Stop by and try some of these activities:

  • Put together a fairy tale puzzle.
  • Create an imaginary monster.
  • Build a castle at the light table.
  • Act out a favorite story with character puppets.
  • Dress up like a hero, king, or princess.



Young Learners Gallery (5-8 year olds)

A dynamic environment for children ages 5-8 years old, the Young Learners Gallery encourages play and imagination through sensory experiences. Become an artist as you reimagine a work of art using our light table or think like a builder while you create your own sculpture using magnetic blocks and Legos. Experiment with light, color, texture, sound, and shape as you explore our vibrant, artist-inspired playhouse in an interactive gallery that is constantly evolving.
