Kohl’s Art Generation Open Studio

The studio is the place to engage in ever-changing hands-on art projects and create something all your own to take home. Each month features a different theme; find your inspiration from the artworks in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions!

The Studio is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 AM–4 PM (Thursdays until 7 PM), so feel free to drop in for a few minutes or spend the day at the Milwaukee Art Museum!

Monthly Inspiration

Each month our programs take on a new theme. Here is a quick list to get you inspired about the months ahead!

    November: Painted Stories

    Travel through the painted narratives of the feature exhibition Of Heaven and Earth: 500 Years of Italian Painting, and learn how to tell a story with your artwork. Have fun painting layered landscapes, and then add characters to them like the eighteenth-century painter Paolo Anesi. Learn how to draw parts of the face and to invent characters with dramatic personality!
