Learn kids | Hunter Museum of American Art 7.0.33-0+deb9u12


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. Weekly walking trips to nearby attractions including the Aquarium and Coolidge Park are also part of the summer fun!

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.

Hunter Kids

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


Art lovers of all ages are invited to Sunday Studio on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 2-4pm for drop-in art making. Geared toward pre-K through middle school artists and their families, each Sunday Studio highlights artworks from the museum’s collection through hands-on art making led by local organizations and showcases youth artists through music and dance.

Regular admission applies; as always, members and youth 17 and under are free. Adults with a Chattanooga Public Library card also get in free when attending these programs with children.

Kids & families events


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.
