Weekend Workshops for Kids

The Monterey Museum of Art offers weekend Playdate at MMA art classes and workshops for children.

Playdate at MMA

Come explore the world of art with Playdates at the Monterey Museum of Art! Playdates are mini art camps on select Saturdays for children ages 6-12. Kids will enjoy two hours of hands-on art experience and get to take home everything they make. Space is limited to 15 students per class, so preregistration is highly suggested.

Refund Policy: Refunds can be given if Monterey Museum of Art is notified at least 72 hours before the event begins. A 25% service charge will be assessed to each event cancellation. No refunds will be given for cancellations less than 72 hours before the event begins. Full refunds will be given if event is cancelled by MMA. Classes may be canceled if there is low enrollment. You will be contacted within one week of the class if this is the case.

Transfers can be made for classes: MMA will transfer your payment from one class to another class (of the same price) if the transfer request is received at least 72 hours before the class begins.
