ArtReach: Session Four (FULL, Max capacity ages 6-8) (Ages 9-11 still open)
As part of a collaborative project between the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and the Center for Child Health and Development at the University of Kansas Medical Center, the Museum offers free workshops for children with and without developmental disabilities each semester.
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.
Students will explore shape and form in 2D and 3D artworks featured in the exhibition Deconstructing Robert Mangold. After discussing the differences between the artworks, students will experiment with making their own flat, low relief, or sculptural works.
