Kids' Art Adventures
Try your hand at print making. Explore the works of Wisconsin’s own master printmaker, Warrington Colescott. Then, use intaglio and a la poupée (literally translated as “with a doll”) techniques to make a print or two.
Kids’ Art Adventures invite families to make art together in MMoCA’s classroom following guided discussion of art on view in the museum’s exhibitions. Six- to ten-year-olds and their families should meet promptly at 1 pm in MMoCA’s lobby; children must be accompanied by an adult. Space at Kids’ Art Adventures is limited to thirty children. more »
MMoCA's Learning Centers offer families a variety of fun and engaging resources for exploring MMoCA’s exhibitions. Children’s books and a range of kid-friendly activities promote imaginative play inspired by works of art. Families may also use the MMoCAkids ArtPack, a shoulder bag filled with a flexible set of interactive creativity tools for use in the galleries and at home.
For adults, books on Warrington Colescott and Death in Venice, information on printmaking techniques, and videos of Death in Venice interpreted through film, opera, and ballet complement the exhibition.
These interactive handouts help parents talk about art with their children, encouraging them to think imaginatively about what they see while learning about art and artists. Use Let's look to explore Death in Venice: Piazza San Marco on view in Death in Venice: Warrington Colescott and Thomas Mann.
