About the Moonshot Studio: The Kennedy Center’s new REACH Moonshot Studio (opening September 2019) will provide visitors of all ages an opportunity to “try on” art forms, explore stories and themes from the Center’s stages, and take individual ownership of the creative process through a dedicated arts learning laboratory. Dedicated to the exploration of learning and creativity through art-making, the Studio will function as both a weekend drop-in, immersive learning center where families and visitors can explore the artistic process and create works of art and a weekday, timed, hands-on experience that connects to and supplements the Center’s performances for student audiences and educators.
