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!

December: Handmade Home

All month long, the studio will transform into a decorative arts workshop. Study essential elements of traditional furniture design and learn about the history of American decorative arts while you experiment with carving, upholstery, and pottery. Use wood, velvet, and glass to make an assortment of well-crafted gifts for the holidays.
Enjoy additional winter break hours, Monday through Friday, December 26–30, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. (7 p.m. on Friday).

January: Winter Garden

Head to the Museum and prevent those winter blues! January is all about Nature and Opulence: The Art of Martin Johnson Heade! Take a stroll through the exhibition and escape into the warm tropical landscapes and discover the exotic plants and birds. Then stop by the studio to draw from live plants, study insects, and build a snow-white floral sculpture. Families will also have the opportunity to contribute to a community project for Penfield Montessori Academy.
