ArtReach Fall 2014
The objective of ArtReach is to provide opportunities for self-expression and communication through the visual arts. Each hands-on workshop is designed for a particular age group and relates to specific works of art on view. Participants will learn how to work with different media and gain knowledge of elements of art while being introduced to a specific artist’s work and his or her inspiration. Students will create an original work of art based on the skills learned in the workshop.
ArtReach Fall 2014 begins Saturday, September 13. To see the entire schedule, click here.
This program is made possible with the generous support of the Curry Family Foundation.
Come take part in our Fall Homeschool Programs!
Make the Kemper a part of your homeschool routine. Homeschool art programs like our monthly Homeschool Art Sampler and Fine Art First Friday are designed to serve co-op groups or individual families.
The programs consist of 1 hour and 30 minute sessions held on the morning of the third Thursday of the month or the afternoon of the first Friday.
The themes of each program change from month to month and take place in the Museum's galleries, and are designed to be an interactive experience that encourages students to examine objects and ideas through observation, discussion and activities. Programs are drop-in with no registration required.
Homeschool Art Sampler: 10:00–11:30 a.m.
