|Next sessions in Johnson County Museum's Winter Arts Series set for March 2 and 19|
Young children can create art inspired by the artwork of Pablo Picasso at the Johnson County Museum during the next and final entries in a Winter Art Series being presented by the museum during March.
Museum Educator Justin Border is presenting these stand-alone programs for ages five to 12 accompanied by an adult. The programs take place beginning at 10 a.m. at the Johnson County Museum, 6305 Lackman Road, Shawnee. Each program is offered twice, including one on the first Wednesday of the month, followed by a repeat on the second Saturday. The cost for each one-hour program is $3 per person, including adults, and museum members are free.
The last of the three programs in this series is called Pablo Picasso Inspired Sculptures and will celebrate the Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright who is considered one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century. This session will challenge young artists to create sculpture emulating Picasso's Cubist works using an ordinary aluminum can and puffy paint. One program will take place on Wednesday, March 2, while another will take place on Saturday, March 19.
Individual walk-in participations are welcome, if space is available, but groups of ten or more must preregister. Individuals and groups can preregister by calling (913) 715-2575.
