CMA Sketch

CMA Sketch challenges participants with a prompt to draw something inspired by the CMA’s collection. Prompts are open-ended and designed for all ages! Join in with your kids, friends, colleagues, or entire family to connect with CMA in a collaborative, virtual community.

Participants can share sketches using #CMASketch for a chance to be reposted to CMA’s Instagram stories. Don’t forget to upload your creations to Visitor Art Gallery, using the Submit Your Artwork button below. Check back every Tuesday for a new prompt!
