ArtReach: Comic Collage

Kemper Museum
Ages 6–8 11:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m., Ages 9–12 1:30–3:30
FREE | Registration Required, email reservations@kemperart.org

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.

This program is made possible with the generous support of the Curry Family Foundation.
