Teen Studio Saturday

Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art
1:00-3:00 p.m.
FREE | Ages 13–18

Grab your friends and join us at Kemper Museum for Teen Studio Saturday! All teens ages 13-18 are invited for a FREE drop-in art-making session on the third Saturday of each month from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Explore modern and contemporary artwork, meet other talented teens, and experiment with different materials and a wide range of art forms such as visual art, slam poetry, fashion, and creative writing.

This month's theme is humor. Teens will be invited to explore how to use humor in art! Humor can be a source of laughter while also acting as a vehicle in contemporary art to explore serious subjects and issues related to current events. This month the Teen Arts Council will create a Photo Booth for gathered teens to use props, frames, masks, and backgrounds to create amazingly humorous photographs.

A collaborative project between Kemper Museum and the University of Kansas Medical Center, ArtReach workshops allow children with and without special needs to create art together. Each hands-on workshop is inspired by artwork on view in the Museum.
