In this dynamic ArtReach workshop, participants will learn about the importance and power of the circle in art! After exploring the concentric circles in both Polly Apfelbaum’s artwork and in the installation by Paul Henry Ramirez, participants will create three different pieces of art using circles while also experimenting with different materials such as polymer clay, wood, and found objects.
Ages 6-8: 10:30 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
Ages 9-12: 1:00–3:00 p.m.

As part of a collaborative project between Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art and the Center for Child Health and Development at the University of Kansas Medical Center, the Museum offers free art workshops for children on the autism spectrum and their family members.
The objective of ArtReach is to provide opportunities for self-expression and communication through the visual arts. In a low-sensory environment, participants will learn how to work with different media and gain knowledge of elements of art while being introduced to a specific artist’s works and inspiration.
Students will create an original work of art based on skills learned in the workshop. All children, as long as they are accompanied by an adult, are welcome and all materials are provided.
