Artist Tony Roko is a living, breathing example of the spark ignited in children by free access programs like those provided at The New Children’s Museum. Tony’s path to artistic success shows that arts provide a bridge into a world not limited by language skills, social or economic background. Click here to see Tony creating his artwork. Tony’s West Coast Opening at Alexander Salazar’s gallery on November 20 will benefit The New Children’s Museum and help provide free access to the arts for the children of San Diego. Art show details.

When school is out, The New Children’s Museum is in! Our day camps combine hands-on art-making activities, creative games and playtime in the park with the opportunity for children to think, play and create in the Museum’s galleries. This season’s day camps are designed for children age 4 to 12 and you can drop in for just one day or come for the whole week! Don't miss this special NCM holiday experience – register today!
