WHAT IS FAMILY ART PLAY? Typically on the last Sunday of each month, the McNay offers a program for families that involves looking carefully at works of art and investigating a studio or performance component afterwards. This programming is family friendly and great for kids. Mi McNay Es Su McNay! McNay members can reserve space by calling 210.805.1768 by noon the Friday before the activity. Nonmembers, pick up remaining passes the day of the activity.Admission for this event is $10 for nonmember adults, and free for members and all children & teens 19 years and younger.

Family Art Play is made possible by generous support from the Jack H. and William M. Light Charitable Trust. Major support of the McNay’s educational programs is provided by the Nancy Smith Hurd Foundation, the USAA Foundation, and the Hearst Foundations. Additional funding is provided by the Valero Benefit for Children.
