Have you ever dreamed of getting your artwork displayed at The Met? Dine and Draw in The Cafeteria invites visitors to draw and temporarily display their artworks for all to see. Budding artists can find sketching materials and a gallery wall in the The Cafeteria's dining area. So, while enjoying a meal or snack, kids can share their creativity with other Met visitors from around the world!

Some of the drawings made by #MetKids like you!

Do you see Hatshepsut? Or, a drawing inspired by Charles Demuth's I Saw the Figure 5 in Gold? How about the head of a ruler from over 4,000 years ago? With a little imagination, these kids turned The Cafeteria into yet another art destination at The Met.

Ready to draw your own Met-inspired masterpiece? All it takes is a piece of paper, some colored pencils, and a spark of creativity. Next time you come to The Met, leave us a work of art as a record of your visit. Get started right now by exploring artworks on #MetKids and making something at home.

What will you create? Email your drawing to, and we may feature it on the blog!
