Create Playdate at the Denver Art Museum

Create Playdate

Drop in for hands-on artmaking with your little ones!

  • Second Wednesday of the month
  • 10 am–1 pm
  • Meet in the Hamilton Building atrium for program location (Hamilton Building, Level 1)
  • Extended summer hours in June, July, and August from 10 am–2 pm (Note: Create Playdate is not offered in September)

This playful program for toddlers and their parents, grandparents, or caregivers includes:

  • a fun new art project each month inspired by artwork in the museum
  • storytime in front of the artwork
  • instructor-guided close looking to explore the artwork

The Denver Art Museum’s family and community programs team has designed these projects especially for preschool-aged children to build growing minds and inspire lifelong creativity. Some months include special guests from other cultural organizations, music, movement, and songs.

Create Playdate is best for ages 3-5, but older and younger siblings are welcome!

This program is included in general admission, which is free for kids and free for members. Create Playdate is a bilingual program (available in English and Spanish).
