Introducing the ART.EDU.OSITY Creative Space – FCMOA’s hands-on, creative space for play and education. 

Located in the former Gallery 101 space, this fun, self-directed, creative, get-your-hands-dirty space is a place for all kids and adults to make some art related to the exhibitions that we are featuring in the museum. All ages can have fun but we also have specific areas for young toddlers, middle school aged youngsters and teens.

The education center is open the same hours as the museum:
Wednesday – Friday 10:00-5:00pm
Saturday- Sunday 12:00-5:00pm
Closed Monday & Tuesday 

  • Special Note: this education space is not monitored by museum staff and we will not take responsibility for unsupervised children

The museum offers a variety of classes, lectures, workshops and special events that bring our exhibitions to life. FCMOA presents an ongoing series of gallery talks, docent gallery tours and other enriching programs to enhance your understanding of art and FCMOA’s exhibitions.

Check the calendar for upcoming events.
