Art Start - Spring 2019

Art Start is a program for children ages 3 to 5 to engage with art, imagine, and learn together. Lessons are based on Kansas Early Childhood Learning Standards, National Core Arts Standards for Pre-K, and works of art in the Wichita Art Museum collection. The theme changes each month, so come back one session per month for a fresh take on the museum!

Younger children are required to be in a stroller or front pack while in the galleries. Questions? Email
