ArtKids Fun

The Museum of Contemporary Art of the Americas is deeply committed to a program dedicated to children, called ArtKids Fun. This program will offer manifold benefits for both the young participants and the institution itself. The museum has recognized that from an educational standpoint, early exposure to art fosters creativity, enhances fine motor skills, and broadens cultural understanding, while also strengthening cross-disciplinary academic skills such as observation and interpretation. On a social and emotional level, artistic activities serve as a safe channel for emotional expression, encourage teamwork, and boost self-esteem.

Moreover, a program of this nature will not only attract a new segment of visitors but will also strengthen ties with the local community, positioning the museum as a valuable educational resource. In addition, the program has the capability to incorporate specialized volunteers and holds the potential to establish partnerships with schools and other educational organizations. Overall, we are confident that ArtKids Fun will enrich both the museum and the community in which it resides.


Make Your Mark by Susan Feliciano at the opening of Artistic License III

Susan Feliciano, Director at Inkimaru Studio and a dedicated professional with 25 years of experience as an artist, educator, and writer, partook in a child-oriented artistic activity at the third edition of Artist License. The event was inaugurated on Friday, September 4th, attended by over twenty artist professors as well as cultural and educational figures from Miami-Dade County.

Feliciano has conceived '' as a way to engage the public in an act of creation, with one of the simplest methods being drawing. This technique is entirely feasible with minimal resources and without significant logistical investment. Visitors are offered the choice of a wide variety of sizes, textures, and colors. They are also provided with various drawing materials, ranging from basic items like pens, markers, and colored pencils to professional-grade charcoal and pastels.

In this way, participants have the opportunity to leave a lasting impression and even the chance to display their work on one of the walls for public consideration. The drawing transitions from a purely personal expression to a shared collective space where everyone has the opportunity to view and interact with the artistic piece. This action—conducted systematically—shapes a dynamic collection that constantly evolves. As the collection grows in size, its pieces are categorized by genre and theme, continually changing its nature and expanding its meaning, becoming increasingly authentic and inspiring with each new addition.
