MEA Weekday Workshop (Thursday)

What a fantastic two days to host a WEEKDAY WORKSHOP!

Our warm up art practice on Thursday morning included string painting and line designs.  While the children were watercoloring their pieces (embellishing the markings and lines they had created), there was a bit of confusion regarding color mixing.



Our next activity involved exploring color mixing, labeling our colors 
and discovering the colors we could create!


On our walk to the MIA, we stopped at the MCAD sculpture garden to sketch.




It was a beautiful day for a snack picnic!



The children always exercise such a natural sense of reverence for the museum, using their whispering voices, walking feet and inquiring about specific pieces or exhibits that personally interest them.



We collected leaves on our walk back to the classroom and created leaf prints.


The children chose a specific inspiration from their visit to the MIA 
and painted their interpretations on canvas.


Read more about our time together on Friday.

Happy Art Making!
