The Art Center is almost done with cookies and coloring for the year. We are really going to miss the program through the summer, even with our busy schedule.
This last week was definitely one of my favorites. For the past month or so, they have been studying pop artist. Last week, they talked about Janet Echelman and Alexander Calder. These were fascinating artists!
Alexander Calder created huge mobiles that moved because of air. Janet Echelman created large outdoor moving sculptures that moved with air, as well.
Their project was based on Alexader Calder’s use of mobiles. They created a mobile with string, straws, and paper. It was lots of fun to see the mobiles come to life. Here is Miss E’s.
Definitely go check out these two artists if you don’t know about them yet. They are fantastic!
