Are you looking for something free, fun, and educational to do with your kids this summer? Check out Art Cart and Art Cart EXTRA!

These programs—run by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and sponsored by TDS—bring free art projects (designed for children ages 3+) to parks and playgrounds in Madison, Wisconsin and the surrounding areas. They run Monday-Saturday all summer long and offer a combination of morning, afternoon, and evening sessions.

Art Cart EXTRA brings the fun of Art Cart beyond the City of Madison by visiting neighborhoods in the surrounding area. This summer, Art Cart EXTRA will be stopping in the following TDS Fiber communities: Cottage Grove, McFarland, Oregon, and Waunakee. It will also be visiting Mt. Horeb and Stoughton.

Families do not need to register for Art Cart or Art Cart EXTRA sessions. They can just drop in and start creating. However, organized summer camps and other childcare programs must pre-register before visiting the program sites.
