Louise Bourgeois was well-known for her large bronze spider sculptures, one of which we have displayed outside in front of Kemper Museum! After exploring this sculpture and reading the book about Bourgeois’ life, Cloth Lullaby, workshop participants will write and illustrate a book about a spider!

Ages 6-8: 10:30 a.m.–12:00 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.
