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 during the summer.

Both programs offer a variety of individual and group art activities 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 at 608-204-3021 to attend Madison Art Cart sites; families are invited to drop-in with no pre-registration necessary.

Art Cart will begin in Madison on Thursday, June 14.

Art Cart EXTRA! will travel to the area communities of Cottage Grove, DeForest, Fitchburg, McFarland, Monona, Mount Horeb, Oregon, Stoughton, Sun Prairie, Verona, Waunakee, and Windsor beginning Saturday, June 16.
