Kohl’s Art Studio
Kohl’s Art Studio is a joint effort between Kohl’s and the Milwaukee Art Museum to bring area kids and their families closer to art—to discover more about it—and involve them in creative art experiences. The studio is the place to engage in hands-on art projects and create something all your own.
Because the health and safety of the Milwaukee community is our highest priority, the Kohl’s Art Studio at the Museum is currently closed. Bring the creativity of the studio into your home by exploring the art-making videos below.
Kids 12 and under are free every day the Museum is open thanks to
