March 13: I is for Impressionism
Seen Art, by Jon Scieszka and Lane Smith
The Impressionists are famous for their flowers and landscapes, and today your toddler will be, too! We're creating dark and light green collages to mimic some of our favorite light-filled landscapes.
March 20: J is for Junk
Found Alphabet, by Shindler Graniczewski
Folk artists inspire us with the materials they use to create art. We're taking a cue from them today as we turn yesterday's junk into today's fine art!
March 27: K is for Kids
The King of Color, by Laurence Anholt
We're putting those fingers to work again today as we use our fingerprints, ink pads, and pens to create colorful art.
April 3: L is for Lincoln
It Looked Like Spilt Milk, by Charles G. Shaw
Check out a marble bust of Abraham Lincoln in the galleries, and then head downstairs to make a 3-D collage out of all white materials. Maybe you'll only collage things that start with the letter L.
April 10: M is for Me
Mouse Paint, by Ellen Stoll Walsh
We're getting up close and personal today. You'll see your reflection in a work of art in the galleries, and then you'll make a colorful collage of yourself in the workshops.
April 17: N is for Nose
The Nose Book, by Al Perkins
Do you know noses? You can experiment with what nose you think looks best on the mask that you make in the workshops. Will it be small? Big? Square? Round? It's all up to you.
April 24: O is for Oval
Olivia, by Ian Faloner
Is that a circle? No, but it looks similar. It's an oval! Explore how an oval can fit around your neck when you make a fancy beaded necklace to wear home from the Museum.
