Live Creative Studio
Live Creative Studio
Beat the summer heat and chill-create-repeat in our fresh new studio space designed for busy families on-the-go. Back by popular demand, our Live Creative Summer Studio returns, complete with a brand new home in the museum’s Mary S. and David C. Corbin Family Foundation Gallery and the adjoining Rory and Dedee O’Neil Lobby. During the museum’s weekday hours, families are invited to pop-in and explore the process of idea-making with unique art mediums and techniques, guided by our friendly studio instructors. During all other open hours, enjoy the space on your own at hands-on creation stations inspired by the artwork on view. No registration needed.
Making art in the studio is only the beginning! That’s why we’ve designed a balanced space where the process of meaningful mess-making is paired with thoughtful wandering or tinkering. The relaxing gallery space near the active lobby work area is designated for self-directed constructive play where children and adults alike can look closely at and respond to fresh, new art made by Ohio working artists at all stages of their career who create textiles, sculpture, paintings, and even wallpaper. From grandparents to tots, and everyone in between, let the elements of art inspire you. Make meaningful summer memories and soak up those small shining moments of wonder together. Make your inner artist happy every day!
Free for members and all children (age 17 and under with an adult) every day. Regular museum admission applies for non-member adults Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with the exception of Free Thursdays when admission is free to all.

Corbin Foundation with additional funding from OMNOVA Solutions Foundation, Peg’s Foundation, Robert O. and Annamae Orr Family Foundation, Charles E. and Mabel M.
