Art(full) Bags and Art Stop!
The Art(full) Bag is filled with objects to support and create educational connections to the Museum's main gallery exhibition. As families view the works in Piece by Piece: Building a Collection, they are encouraged to use the hands-on materials for a deeper understanding of the exhibition and the beauty, intention, and meaning of the works of art on view.
The next time you swing by the Museum with the kids, stop by the Visitor’s Service Desk to grab an Art Stop card. Each month features two collection works and offers fun facts and guiding comparison questions to encourage learning and sharing.
Hone your art detective skills and discover something new about contemporary art at the Kemper Museum. The third Saturday of each month is Scavenger Saturdays for families. Children with adults may pick up a self-guided activity at the Visitor Services Desk and follow the clues on this “ART-astic” adventure. When finished with the activity, children may pick up a take-home, art-making activity kit. No reservations are required.
Scavenger Saturdays at the Kemper Museum are made possible with generous support from the R.A. Long Foundation.
10:00 a.m.–3:00 p.m.

Homeschool Museum 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 afternoon of the first Friday of the month (Fine Art Friday) and the morning of the third Wednesday of each month (Homeschool Art Sampler).
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.
