Children's Classes

Spark imagination, creativity, and lifelong connections with art at The Met! Sign up for classes taught by experienced educators and teaching artists who use the entire Museum—from the studios to the galleries—as an expanded classroom. Weekday and weekend classes meet once a week for eight to twelve weeks each fall and spring. Fall classes begin in September and spring classes begin in February.

Members get early notification and can register before the general public. Members receive a 15% discount on all courses whenever they purchase a class. For Membership assistance, email or call 212-570-3753.

Register for spring 2017 classes online! Members priority registration begins December 5. Registration for the general public begins December 12. Space is limited and classes fill quickly. Registration closes on January 20, 2017, 5 pm (ET), or when classes fill. All registration and sales are final; no refunds or exchanges. The Museum reserves the right to cancel a class at any time due to insufficient enrollment. In the event that we must cancel, we will issue a refund.

For questions about the classes or the limited number of scholarships available, please email or call 212-570-3961. Apply for a scholarship.
