Art Studio

The Bakke Art Studio is all kids need to create their newest masterpiece.

Decorate the interactive paint window. Illuminate shape and form in the Shadow Room. Take a seat to sculpt, draw, and weave. Rotating exhibits and thousands of petite pieces by local kids provide an endless supply of inspiration. Made possible by Jim & Susan Bakke. Closes 30 minutes before museum.

Art Studio programs, as well as art programs throughout the museum, are supported in part by a grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board with funds from the State of Wisconsin and the National Endowment for the Arts.

What We're Learning:

How to unleash creative thinking through the arts, from sculpture and painting, to writing and performing.

Community Gallery: Visit the Art Studio in September to view portraits from the Memory Project, which helps students around the United States create portraits of children from across the globe who face substantial challenges. The portraits are then gifted back to the children they depict, to help them feel valued and know that people care about their well-being. MCM will be displaying copies of portraits of Syrian children affected by the ongoing war there.
