Kohl’s Color Wheel


Imagine a vehicle that brings creativity and ingenuity into your community—a mobile art experience that’s like an extension of the Milwaukee Art Museum, where kids not only take part in fun projects, but also grow and learn through art! That’s the idea behind Kohl’s Color Wheel program, and its coming to Elm Grove this Saturday.

We can all appreciate the creative forces that children have inside of them. This is their chance to express themselves artistically. The Kohl’s Color Wheel Program, presented by the Milwaukee Art Museum, will be held at the Elm Grove Public Library this Saturday, February 8, from 10am to Noon. This free program is intended for children ages 4-12, who must be accompanied by an adult. No reservations are needed; simply show up ready to create. Kohl’s Color Wheel is presented by the Friends of Elm Grove Library. We’ll see you on Saturday!
