Free family art fun is on tap at MAM's Art Generation Studio

This weekend, I took the family to the Kohl's Art Generation studio at Milwaukee Art Museum for the first time.

We'd been up to the old, smaller space a few times, but this was our debut at the swanky new studio on the first floor, and it was a blast.

There were a few families working hard and having fun with construction paper, creating autumn projects to take home and to share on the murals in the studio.

One of my kids made an awesome, three-dimensional autumn scene with grass, a pumpkin and more. The rest of us worked more two-D, cutting and pasting to make variegated corn- and squash-themed decorations and other fun stuff.

We really had a great time and doing projects in the Art Generation studio is a treat for parents. All the supplies are at hand, the staff is friendly and we don't have to worry about making a mess of the dining room table. And it's all free (though you have to pay to get into the museum, of course).

This Sunday, Dec. 2, from 1o until 4, the Art Museum will team with Kohl's for Kohl's Art Generation Family Sundays: "Home for the Holidays."

At the free (again, with museum admission) event, kids of all ages can make unique holiday gifts in the art studio, watch Irish dancers, hear holiday music and more, all inspired by the current "Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Gainsborough: The Treasures of Kenwood House, London" show on view at the art museum through early January.
