art lab

WKMA’s Art Lab is a hub for learning where students, makers, educators, and the public can connect, exchange knowledge and ideas, and hone their skills. Equipped with painting, drawing, printmaking, and clay studios; a darkroom; and digital and 3D labs, it’s a space where critical thinking is engaged, curiosity is sparked, and creativity flourishes. It’s a place for examining the rich diversity of our world through the lenses of art, craft, and technology.
