What

The ArtLab logo  is a hands-on art learning center.

 

Designed for everyone from toddlers to adults, the ArtLab logo moves you to look, create and understand. You'll learn how to approach and consider art, and how to make art. Through your interactive experiences, you rediscover the magic of your imagination.

How It Works

Made up of a huge studio, four classrooms and more than 16 colorful activity stations, the ArtLab logo's activities relate to the artwork in the Mulvane galleries. So you'll unleash your inner artist - and better understand the art you see in the Museum.

Activities are always fresh, and always changing. You might dig into:

  • Contour drawing
  • Mosaic
  • Self-portrait
  • Texture
  • Abstract art
  • Illustration
  • Shading
  • Concave and convex images
  • Installation art
  • Rock art
  • Architecture
  • Weaving
  • Printmaking
  • Sculpture

Maybe you'll trace the shape of a friend onto a see-through pane. Or create a mosaic on a wall covered in magnets. Or explore a cave with hidden petroglyphs. Whatever you do, you'll have a lot of fun while giving your imagination a workout.

All of this makes the ArtLab logo a go-to field-trip destination and a fun, productive place for kids and families to spend the day.

 

 

What Else

The ArtLab logo  also has a library. Check out cool art books and other art materials from around the world. This is a great spot to dream up projects you can do at home.
