NCM is fun for families. NCM is educational for children and adults. NCM is thought-provoking for everyone!
Why is that important? There is a "creativity crisis" in America. Schools are cutting arts funding and struggling parents have few resources to provide engaging creative experiences for their kids. Creativity is not just about art—it's about generating ideas and learning new approaches to problem solving. These skills are essential for a productive future.
At NCM, kids have individualized, hands-on art making and creative experiences. At a time when our public schools no longer offer arts instruction, NCM provides access to the arts to kids from all income levels and walks of life. From hands-on studio projects and participatory exhibitions to observing contemporary artists at work, NCM makes a difference in our kids' lives and gives them the tools they need to shape their futures.
