Community Programs

Enriching lives in the community.

After-School and Summer Programs

The Nelson-Atkins joins area agencies to provide pre-k, after-school and summer art workshops for children with disabilities or who are facing economic barriers.

Workshops can occur at partnering agencies, at the museum or combination of both. Programs feature interactive discussions of the museum collection and hands-on art-making.

Email communityprograms@nelson-atkins.org for more information.

English Language Learners

The Nelson-Atkins partners with agencies and educational institutions to work with some of the country’s newest residents. With art at the foundation, our programs enhance language skills, develop cultural and social investment, prepare people for the citizenship test and support workforce development.
