Smithsonian Spark!Lab and Art-making!



Spark!Lab offers any child (and accompanied by an adult), a new informal approach to hands-on learning. Created by the Smithsonian, Spark!Lab ignites kids’ ingenuity with fun, hands-on challenges. Instead of following instructions, kids tap into their natural creativity to tackle engineering and design challenges in Spark!Lab’s projects stations.



Get creative in our Studio Art program! Hands-on classes for every age and skill level inspire both kids and adults to take risks and bring their ideas to life in a variety of mediums.
