  • Description - Arizona Museum for Youth

    There's lots of FUNtastic Adventures to be had at AMY for Kids & Teens! Artzone hands-on activities, Exhibition hands-on activities, Classes & Workshops, Volunteering in galleries, gallery shop, and other departments. More than just a "play space," ArtVille is an aesthetic, engaging environment designed with the unique requirements of those under 5 years of age. Young crawlers to curious toddlers will keep busy in a town built to cultivate awareness of color, line, shape and texture. Larger-than-life crayons, paintbrushes and glitter glue can be found at every corner emphasizing the town philosophy of artistic exploration. Art's Living Room is a theme-based reading area designed to foster pre-reading skills and encourage early literacy for our young visitors. It is a place where children and adults can relax and read together in a comfortable space. Art's Kitchen is a full, child-sized kitchen complete with all of the modern appliances where children can pretend to cook, eat, set the table, clean-up and recycle. This area encourages language development, role-playing, environmental awareness, cooperative play and social interaction. Art's Garden is a space where children can harvest Velcro fruits from an oversized felt tree, plant carrots in the garden furrows or harvest corn from Velcro corn stalks, providing them an opportunity to role-play, play cooperatively, develop language skills, and sort fruits and vegetables. Art's Studio features a new and stimulating art activity each day which encourages children to express their creativity, develop a sense of self through individual expression, develop fine motor skills, and become exposed to a variety of new and interesting art materials. Art's Gallery exposes young children and their parents to a fine arts museum experience, all at a child's eye view. Hands-on and "hands-off" activities are provided to allow children the opportunity to appreciate and create fine art and learn museum manners. The Performing Arts Center is a theme-based room that lets children interact and role-play in an active, creative art environment. Depending on the current theme, children and adults could play instruments, develop rhythm and coordination by listening and interacting with music, dress-up in fun costumes, and/or act out stories in the puppet theater. Watch for this space to change with each new exhibit.

      Free Trial Classes for Kids

      In my opinion, one of the best things an activity provider can offer (besides a full coffee bar on-site) is a free trial class! . . . more
