Kohl’s Art Generation Open Studio

SATURDAYS AND SUNDAYS, 10 AM–4 PM
FIRST THURSDAY OF THE MONTH, 10 AM–7 PM

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

July: Child’s Play

In July, look to the folk and self-taught art galleries for inspiration. Invent and build mixed-media
sculptures that move in the wind and toys that turn work into play. Get ideas from the Museum’s
collection of whirligigs to design your own creation, or rethink an everyday chore as a toy!

August: Just “Wright”

Explore the architectural drawings and models in Frank Lloyd Wright: Buildings for the Prairie for inspiration this month. Imagine how a building looks within a certain landscape as you sculpt
buildings and create your own mixed-media architectural drawings.

September: A Handful of Clay

Dig into the Museum’s Collection, and discover the many properties of clay. Sculpt a face jug, and learn about traditions of the American South through the work of Dave the Potter. Learn to hand-build with clay slabs, tell a story in slip, and cast then carve a stein.

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