The museum’s popular, free outdoor art programs bring expert instruction and a relaxed attitude to art projects at parks, playgrounds, and beaches in Madison and Dane County in the summer.

Both programs offer a variety of individual and group art projects planned for children ages three and above. All children should be accompanied by a supervising adult. Organized summer camps and other childcare programs must pre-register; families are invited to drop-in with no pre-registration necessary.

Help celebrate Art Cart's 40th birthday! Join in the FREE, fun party activities at Rennebohm Park on Tuesday, July 28 from 5:30–7:30 pm. The Art Cart will be there. We hope you will too!

Art Cart will begin making rounds in Madison on Thursday, June 18.

Art Cart EXTRA! will travel to the area communities of Black Earth, Cambridge, Cottage Grove, DeForest, Fitchburg, McFarland, Monona, Oregon, Stoughton, Sun Prairie, Verona, and Waunakee beginning Saturday, June 20. Visit the Art Cart EXTRA! blog to learn about art projects planned for summer 2015.
