Studio Programs offer opportunities for all ages to learn how art connects with our daily lives. Focusing on the KAG’s current exhibitions, programs include art camps, interactive tours, activities and workshops that encourage self-expression and experimentation through the process of learning art techniques, basic design concepts and how to use a variety of media. If you haven’t already, we encourage you to follow us on Facebook and sign up for our monthly e-Newsletter to ensure you are aware of programs as they are scheduled. Click here for details.
