The Judith Lennox Sabatini ArtLab is a hands-on art learning center.
Designed for everyone from toddlers to adults, the ArtLab 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 16-plus colorful activity stations, the ArtLab'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:
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 a go-to field-trip destination and a fun, productive place for kids and families to spend the day.
The ArtLab also houses a library where you can check out cool art books and see other art materials from around the world. This is a great spot to dream up projects you can do at home.
