Learn kids | Hunter Museum of American Art 7.0.33-0+deb9u12
Follow Hunter Museum on Instagram or Facebook for details regarding teen and pre-K and family workshops this summer and throughout the year, including pre-k and Kindergarten camp Aug 1-3.


Taught by local artists and museum professionals with a low camper-to-counselor ratio, Hunter summer art camps are weeklong experiences designed to immerse campers in a hands-on approach to artistic methods, materials, and inspirations. Campers will spend time in the museum galleries, in the art studios, and outdoors.

Each week of camp is unique, and campers may choose to return building on inspiration and skills learned in previous weeks. All art materials – and snacks – will be provided. Parents are asked to pack a peanut-free lunch for their child each day. Register now at the link below.

Age: Rising 1st – 6th Graders

Camp sessions: June 5-9, June 12-16, June 19-23, June 26-30, July 10-14, July 17-21, July 24-28 (full)

Camp runs from 9am to 4pm each day

Hunter Kids

The Hunter Museum has lots of ways for children to explore the arts.
Children 17 and under FREE everyday!

Virtual Schooling

The resources we give to classroom teachers are also available for virtual schoolers. We have a variety of options that can be tailored to your child’s needs and interests.

  • Browse Virtual Hunter for art activities, tutorials, mini tours, and museum guides for kids. We can help you integrate these into your child’s assigned curriculum.
  • Bring your child on a small and safe group tour. You can enjoy the museum with your child and a few friends. Museum educators design and lead tours to match your child’s age and interests. Physical distancing and masks are required.
  • Schedule a virtual tour with a group of virtual schooling friends. Like the in-person tour, your child can see artworks in the museum and ask questions.
  • Reach out to us with questions! We can help you enhance your curriculum with art and creativity.



Designed for our youngest guests, Family Fun Days are interactive and engaging. Bring the whole family for an afternoon of fun at the museum with hands-on activities, games, and live performances inspired by the art in our exhibits. Family Fun Days are free to all kids 17 and under, free to members, and only $20 for general admission, which includes admission to all exhibitions and activities.

Start practicing for the Hunter’s next Family Fun Day with activities on Virtual Hunter!


New in 2022, every 2nd Sunday of the month will host Sunday Studios, a drop in art making workshop for visitors of all ages from 2–4pm. Each month will highlight a work of art from the museum collection and feature an activity that can be taken home as a lasting reminder of your visit to the Hunter.
With a focus on sound, light, and touch, the sensory-friendly map with visitor guidelines and social narrative will assist youth on the Autism Spectrum or with sensory processing disorders in preparing for their visit and navigating the museum.
This project is being supported, in whole or in part, by federal award number SLFRP5534 awarded to the State of Tennessee by the U.S. Department of the Treasury.
