About Contemporary Kids:
Contemporary Kids is an interactive and family-friendly program to introduce young children to contemporary art and artists through approachable mediums and focused hands-on and adaptable activities. Atlanta Contemporary Art Center provides one Contemporary Kids program with every exhibition on view, informed by themes presented by artists or artworks on view. Contemporary Kids are held on Saturday mornings at 11am, are free and drop-in to children and their caregivers, and refreshments are always provided. Contemporary Kids is focused on children ranging from 3-10 years in age, though caregivers may discern the skill level of their child on a case-by-case basis regarding their anticipated involvement in any activity. The Contemporary provides supplemental material that children may take home to continue their on-site activity.

Generous material support for Contemporary Kids is provided by Binders Art Supplies & Frames at Ponce City Market:
