Painting in the Park 2024

Bring your little artists downtown for a day of hands-on fun at the Museum of Fine Arts! This event will include 10 art and activity stations for kids to create their own masterpieces inspired by the MFA Collection, including chalk art along Bayshore Drive inspired by Mary Proctor’s “Dancing on the Street Pave in Gold”; an archaeology dig inspired by the MFA’s antiquities galleries; a pop-up poppy field inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s “Poppy”; and so much more!

Participants will receive a Painting In The Park Passport to help guide them to each station and will earn a stamp for their passport as they complete each activity. Once they’ve completed their passport, they’ll receive a prize. Activities are for toddlers, tweens, and in-betweens, and adults are welcome to join in on the fun, too!

Please join us for this annual FREE event for kids of all ages and the opportunity for families to experience the MFA in a different way!
