Design Your Own Workshop

Want something fun to do with your family or friends? Are you a member of a group looking for a creative activity? At the Kentucky Museum you can design a workshop to fit your group's specific wants or needs. Workshops are divided into three categories but we will be happy to put together an inter-generational one for you. Workshops can be used to fulfill a scouting badge or celebrate a birthday.

Contact artist-in-residence Lynne Ferguson at 270-745-2594 to schedule your own workshop or to get more information.
