Talks and Conversations
Featured artists and exhibition curators often speak at the Kemper Museum’s opening receptions for its special exhibitions. This is an excellent opportunity to learn more about the exhibitions' works and artists' working method.



Hands-on workshops for adults have included watercolor painting, acrylic portrait painting, monotype printing, wire sculpture, collage, mixed media, and creative writing. Led by area artists, these workshops provide creative opportunities that expand on themes and media present in Kemper Museum exhibiting artists' works. Learn to express yourself, work with new materials, and consider new processes and ideas.
