Open Thursdays, Saturdays & Sundays



ColorLab is Brooklyn Children’s Museum’s family art-making space where artists of all ages can explore, make, and celebrate art!  We value discovery, artistic process, freedom of expression, and creative collaboration with others.

ColorLab’s rotating programs feature the work and artistic processes of African American, Afro-Caribbean, and African contemporary artists.  Each visit to ColorLab offers new ways to experiment with artistic processes and new ideas to explore, as well as the exploration of the Museum’s collection using all of the senses. Hands-on programs are supported by BCM’s teaching artists and educators.
