Agape Children’s Museum is committed to providing arts, health and literacy educational opportunities to Long Beach and surrounding South bay area public & private schools, libraries and communities. Using the power of art as an educational tool, Agape regularly collaborates with artists, educators, parents, community leaders and also students.
With our commitment to bringing arts education programs to local schools and communities, Agape helps in becoming a resource for our community youth’s social, emotional and cultural development. Since our inception in 2011 and through our school, community, and museum programming, Agape has impacted the lives of thousands of children and their families with hands-on art learning experiences.
Agape Children’s Museum’s Art Experience in schools, libraries and community events is a program that inspires, children to explore the “language” of art through hands-on investigations of the elements of art: color, line, shape, texture, space and form.”. To fuel inspiration, children will be introduced to a variety of artistic experiences including watercolor, open ended art and clay art. The Art Experience sparks creativity and imagination while celebrating every child’s inherent artistic mindset. The target audiences for the program are children ages 4-10 and their families, as well as pre-K to 5th grade school groups. Each March the Museum Celebrates National Arts Education Month with its annual day-long arts showcase entitled, “Art IS Education”, a day Celebrating and showcasing the immense role arts plays in education through dance, music, theatre, media arts, literature, design and visual arts.
The Agape Cares Program is the Community Service branch of Agape Children’s Museum and serves the Community in many different ways. Every December during the holiday season Agape Children’s Museum, Agape Cares and Local CHASE BANKS collects new, unwrapped TOYS and distributes them to deserving families of children with autism through the charitable organization Autism in Long Beach at the Annual Night of Giving Gala hosted by Agape and The Henry and Mollie Pitts Foundation.
FAITH-BASED ORGANIZATIONS OUTREACH
Our Faith-Based Outreach provides exhibitions and programs for all children in an educational and historical format.

Primarily, the Museum serves elementary school-age children and their families, and is a resource and model, for interactive education on faith-based themes. Agape Children’s Museums, “Faith and Literacy Fairs”, encourage families to relive famous faith-based stories and explore traditions and ceremonies.
