  • Toddler Art Exploration: Printing Circles with Found Objects | Carle Museum
    tray enough to just cover the bottom As it turns out this mixture created a surface tension that sometimes popped and splattered paint across the paper One toddler s parent said Sorry I think we re making a mess here I told her there was no need to apologize The mess is the point of it If you want to try this at home you might start by reading with your child a picture book with lots of circles in it Then have your child help you collect cylindrical objects from your recycling bin or around the house Experiment with whatever washable paint you have on hand or make some paint with our Homemade Liquid Starch Glue recipe and print on white paper If your paint is thick water it down a bit or just use a brush to create a thin layer in the bottom of a tray plastic plate or small cookie sheet You might even try adding a little dish soap to encourage runny paint to strech across the cylinders like mine did above Feel free to offer just a single color of paint with a few different objects to stamp Limiting the color options will help keep the emphasis on exploring the shapes and the action of stamping Treat his activity as an experiment and there is no way you can get it wrong If you like the idea of exploring circles and dots you might also like to see all the activities we offered in the Art Studio to celebrate International Dot Day 2014 Making Art with Children is generously sponsored by the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority by Meghan Burch Tags Plastic caps activities with circles shape printing black and white tempera paint Materials Play This entry was posted on Friday November 7th 2014 at 12 18 pm and is filed under Found Materials Infants and Toddlers Preschool Printmaking You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana MacKenzie 76 By Meghan Burch 63 Classes 22 Collage 66 Displays Window Shades 11 Drawing 50 Elementary School 97 Every Day Art Program 63 Found Materials 48 High School 25 Homemade Materials and Tools 16 Infants and Toddlers 47 Internship Program 25 Light 12 Middle School 33 Mixed Media 66 Nature 46 Our Approach 22 Our Favorite Materials 10 Outreach 23 Painting 57 Paper 37 Preschool 81 Printmaking 39 Professional Development 29 Resources 5 Sculpture 44 Space to Create 2 Special Events 90 Special Guests and Artist Visits 34 Archive February 2016 1 January 2016 1 December 2015 4 November 2015 3 October 2015 2 September 2015 2 August 2015 4 July 2015 3 June

  • Mirror Image Printing | Carle Museum
    them inside the folded sheet of paper These one of a kind monotype prints we call mirror image prints To prepare for the special day we collected leaves from the beautiful fall foliage and a variety of materials from the studio including paperclips rubber bands string popsicle sticks and fruit veggie mesh bags We repurposed pre folded paper from past workshops to allow visitors a choice between different sizes and shapes For the tempera paint we chose to provide two warm colors red and yellow and two cool colors blue and green With four colors to choose from visitors could then put paint in each corner of a mixing tray and use brushes to apply it to the materials they chose from our buffet Some people gravitated towards painting leaves to use in their prints Others chose to use the recycled and found materials and accordion folded the paper into books Some young guests preferred to paint right on the paper and press it with the help of family members One creative guest and his father were inspired by the materials to create letters He showed me one of his books that spelled his name explaining how he created each letter using rubber bands paperclips and even a special technique with string being pulled across the page We hope this post has inspired you to collect leaves outside in the beautiful fall weather look around your house for reusable materials and create some mirror image prints Making Art with Children is generously sponsored by the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority by Diana MacKenzie Tags Emily Biffis Sara Ottomano monotype printmaking with kids natural materials This entry was posted on Monday October 27th 2014 at 11 44 am and is filed under Internship Program Elementary School Mixed Media Painting Preschool Printmaking You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Meghan Burch Diana MacKenzie Categories About This Blog 1 Bookmaking 24 By Diana MacKenzie 76 By Meghan Burch 63 Classes 22 Collage 66 Displays Window Shades 11 Drawing 50 Elementary School 97 Every Day Art Program 63 Found Materials 48 High School 25 Homemade Materials and Tools 16 Infants and Toddlers 47 Internship Program 25 Light 12 Middle School 33 Mixed Media 66 Nature 46 Our Approach 22 Our Favorite Materials 10 Outreach 23 Painting 57 Paper 37 Preschool 81 Printmaking 39 Professional Development 29 Resources 5 Sculpture 44 Space to Create 2 Special Events 90 Special Guests and Artist Visits 34 Archive February 2016 1 January 2016 1 December 2015 4 November 2015 3 October 2015 2 September 2015 2 August 2015 4 July 2015 3 June 2015 3 May 2015 1 April 2015 2 March 2015 3 February 2015 4 January

  • Andy Goldsworthy-Inspired Art from Nature | Carle Museum
    the film would tie into the day s work since it was playing in the background but trusted that for some having heard or seen Goldsworthy s film would be a seed planted for another time Sometime after lunch in a magical little spot between the staff parking lot and an open field nestled between old apple trees and various local bushes someone spotted a big pile of sticks and immediately made a connection to what they had just seen Her interest sparked someone else s and before we knew it everyone was either individually or collaboratively creating with the sticks in the area in which they were found They were experimenting with balance scale point of view light shadow and texture Because this was the last day of the program we couldn t come back to check on their work but would have if this happened earlier in the week If that was the case while visiting their artworks I would have asked the students What s going on here What do you see that makes you say that What more can we find These questions are a part of Visual Thingking Strategies a method we use within The Carle s approach to education So go outside Enjoy nature s yellow rust and red palette that is all around us in New England right now Here s how it might go By yourself or with someone else carefully observe whatever natural materials are around you Maybe you ll make a mental or written list of your observations Study them materials in their natural and then wonder how you might draw attention to something interesting about them Begin to experiment with how and where things are placed minding your safety and the safety of the flora and fauna around you Try creating something you can observe and document through photos or drawings over time Children love to revisit work they created outside Talk to them about what they notice happening and why If you need some visual inspiration want to see other ways we ve been inspired by nature or see examples of how we have used nature in our programs visit the Nature category on our blog or check out these links Andy Goldsworthy for kids on Pinterest Andres Amador Sand Art Google Image Search Diana s Bridging Art and Nature pin board Interested in further research on the importance of the natural world in a child s life Here are a few books you might look for Childhood and Nature Design Principles for Educators by David Sobel Last Child in the Woods Saving Our Children From Nature Deficit Disorder by Richard Louv I Love Dirt 52 Activities to Help You and Your Kids Discover the Wonders of Nature by Jennifer Ward Making Art with Children is generously sponsored by the Massachusetts Educational Financing Authority by Meghan Burch Tags Andy Goldsworthy earth art natural art nature works environmental art animals Art and the Imagination sticks leaves summer Fall This
