Kohl’s Art Generation Open Studio
Monday–Sunday, 10 AM–4 PM
Thursdays, 10 AM–7 PM
Each month features a different theme and the projects are always changing! Here is a quick list to get you inspired about the months ahead.
July: Beyond Real
Learn about the dreamlike art of the Surrealists, informed by the artworks in the Van Gogh to Pollock: Modern Rebels exhibition. Examine the symbolic self-portraits of Frida Kahlo—and paint a portrait of your own. Sculpt an invented creature inspired by the morphing forms found in Joan Miro’s work, and make a collaged “melting” scene in the style of Salvador Dali.
August: Modern Art
Find new ways to create—motivated by the feature exhibition Van Gogh to Pollock: Modern Rebels. Push art materials to the extremes and see the world in new ways! Use thick brushstrokes like Vincent van Gogh, discover cubism and collage with help from the work of Pablo Picasso, and express the power of color like Mark Rothko.
