KMA Open Studio

People at a table working on an art project

We welcome families into our physical studio space on the second floor of the Museum for art-making activities inspired by our exhibitions and collections. 

KMA Open Studio is a FREE program for families and visitors of all ages to engage in shared creative activities. Open Studio programs are from 2 - 3:30 pm on select Sundays. Space is limited and we are currently requiring pre-registration to attend. Children must be accompanied by an adult.

FALL 2023 SCHEDULE: SEPT. 24, OCT. 22, AND NOV. 19.


2 PM - 3:30 PM


Kennedy Museum of Art’s September Family Open Studio will explore the process of sculpting with modeling clay using inspiration from objects displayed in the new installation from collections, At/On the Table. Looking into the design choices made by the artists featured in the current works in this exhibition, participants will think about household items as artistic objects that could occupy a place "on the table" or represent the conversational space where relationships and friendships are fostered and ideas are talked about, "at the table." Participants will create their own sculpture (possibly a teapot, flatware, tiny table, etc.) using modeling clay, hopefully drawing on their own experiences that have occurred "at/on the table." Attendees will leave with their own baked clay creations!

Instructors: Hannah Moulen- Graduate Student, Printmaking, Emily Van Meter- HTC, Studio Art & Art History, & Maia Leclair- Journalism
