School Tours for children from preschool through university are offered with the aim of engaging students in discussions about modern and contemporary art. Scavenger Saturday is held on the third Saturday of each month and offers families and children the opportunity to hone their art detective skills and discover something new about contemporary art.
TOTs on Tuesday includes reading books, singing songs, exploring and creating art alongside a Kemper Museum educator and librarian. The Kemper Museum also provides gallery conversations and lively discussions by docents and other art experts on the Museum’s current exhibitions. Fine Art Friday offers interactive experiences in the Museum’s galleries, docent-led tours of the current exhibitions and exploration of art through activities, discussion, and observation.
For teens, the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art has a No Boundaries Teen Art Initiative that brings together the top students from the community to explore, create and collaborate art in multiple ways. These include practicing the art of presentation and constructive critiques, expanding creative concepts, exploring various art genres and mediums, learning from and working with visiting artists, and being mentored by three distinguished artist-educators.
Adult programs include free hands-on workshops, demonstrations, film festivals, talks and lectures, performances and symposia, as well as docent-led tours for groups of 10 or more. Photo:
