Kohl’s Art Generation Open Studio

Saturdays and Sundays, 10 AM–4 PM
First Friday of the month, 10 AM–7 PM

Stop in the studio to create art inspired by the artwork in the Museum. A different collection or exhibition is featured each month, and the activities are always changing!

July: American Story

How will you tell your American story? Is it similar to or different than the picture of America in the theatrical paintings in American Epics: Thomas Hart Benton and Hollywood? Set the stage for your story on a three-dimensional model. Arrange the people, and light the scene. Paint your story, casting friends and family as characters. Trace outlines of you and your family onto a giant group mural.

August: From Furniture to Flatware

Take a trip together through the Museum’s 20th-Century Design collection. See what designs made Tiffany & Company and others legendary. Make remarkable cabinetry, and use your own stamped textiles to practice upholstery. Notice the details that make tableware art. Then combine cutting-edge and classic elements in your own vehicle construction.

Check out all of the Museum’s Weekend Family Programs.
