  • Making Nature Faces | Carle Museum
    they were completely dry The cardboard was a good option because it s light weight but still sturdy You could also use scraps of wood if the edges were sanded smooth You could have the children glue things down themselves if you had several low temp glue guns Ours are super hot and not child safe so decided against having the kids do the gluing themselves I chose hot glue to secure the objects quickly and without much mess since we needed to be able to paint the faces right away If you had more time between construction and painting you could use a thick glue like Aleene s Tacky Glue instead It was a hot afternoon in August when we did this activity so for the painting portion I set everyone up in a slightly shady area on the grass As you can see it kept everyone very focused At first I provided them with the paint colors I had on hand orange red and turquoise Many of them wanted to make green so I added yellow to their trays too I recommend providing small amounts of paint they didn t need very much to cover their faces Everyone got their own tray for mixing tempera paint colors one brush and a foam tray to pick up any stray brush strokes The tempera paint dried really quickly and the kids were able to bring them home that same afternoon I got my inspiration for this activity from a pin on Pinterest The original source is Arty Farty Workshops on Flickr This was one of my favorite projects from the whole week and I could tell the kids really enjoyed it too If you try it out send us a link to your photos For more art and nature ideas visit The Carle s Pinboard Bridging Art and Nature by Diana MacKenzie Tags art outside arty farty workshops bridging art and nature flickr hot glue projects leaves nature ourdoor art painting outside painting with children pinterest sam wilson sticks stones This entry was posted on Monday September 9th 2013 at 7 00 am and is filed under Elementary School Found Materials Mixed Media Nature Painting Preschool 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through the RSS 2 0 feed You can leave a response or trackback from your own site Leave a reply Your name Mail will not be published Website Share CAPTCHA This question is for testing whether or not you are a human visitor and to prevent automated spam submissions Contributors Meghan Burch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

  • Collage Birds Inspired by Picture Books | Carle Museum
    starting with the point on one of the short sides Whenever possible I try not to demonstrate how to do something because it could lead the the students to wanting theirs to look like mine or feelings of not getting theirs right I let them know if they want to make their drop rounder or wider or narrower they choice was theirs As it turns out everyone s drop shape was unique As an educator I see a part of my job as helping my students see their peers as resources and teachers I ve since done this project again ans asked a student to show the rest of the group how they might cut a tear drop shape When everyone had cut their bird s body shape I had them hold up their negative shape the paper leftover from their drop shape to see if there were other shapes within it they could identify They found that 2 triangle ish shapes were left down by the point end of my paper As I showed them how I cut triangles off my negative shape I asked what parts of my bird could use these for Their responses included wings a tail and a beak and showed me that they could each envision a unique way to create their bird Once nearly everyone had their shapes cut out we talked about how to integrate their stamped collage papers into their birds We could have gone directly to cutting shapes out of their collage paper but my thinking was that cutting from the white paper would help them focus on they shapes they were making without the distraction of color and visual texture Additionally my plan was to invite the students to make a mobile with their birds It would be necessary to have the final birds be sturdier than just the papers we stamped So using one of my white shapes and a gluestick I showed them how to glue it to the back of a stamped paper and then cut it out again The parts of the birds were glued to each other rather than a background piece of paper Everyone finished at least one bird A few who had extra time started making bats Next time I do this I might having them stamp directly to heavier weight paper to save the extra gluing and cutting step I liked how drawing with scissors as opposed to drawing the shapes on the papers with pencil first helped keep the shapes loose and large Sometimes when given a pencil or precious materials such as their stamped papers kids have a tendency to work really small Later we attached our birds to sticks we collected on our walk with craft string and white file label dots This is the part of the process I have no photos of You can t always be in the moment and document it The shot I would have loved for you to see is of the

  • Printing with Children: Roll with It! | Carle Museum
    I brushed a layer of Mod Podge over the foamy pieces to prevent them from peeling off too quickly If you do this activity at your home or school for cleanup I don t recommend soaking the balls that have foamy shapes attached for long periods of time quickly rinse any excess paint and allow them to dry thoroughly before storing them On the Sunday of my activity we were lucky enough to have a wonderfully sunny day and I setup on the outside patio Each paint color was a station along the patio ledge pink yellow green and blue people could work from either end and easily move from color to color To help kids keep the blue printing tools with the blue paint and so on I coordinated the printing tool colors to the paint colors making it easy for them to organize everything themselves Using the homemade stamp pads like the ones the Studio has made in the past allowed for the objects to get covered in paint without becoming to wet or clogged The large size of the custom pad also allowed guests to roll the printing tools around getting paint on many sides While I wanted everyone to be able to create their own image I also thought it would be fun to have a large group project especially because the larger paper would allow the kind of activity these sport objects were originally meant for A brother and sister played catch rolling and bouncing the tools along the larger paper to create marks Others created giant butterflies and flowers By the end of the day I was amazed by how many creative and diverse approaches people had come up with dropping rolling twisting stamping dragging and much more One family even went beyond the tools given and started using their baby s feet and hands Watching guests creativity bloom in the Studio has been one of the most exciting things to experience during my time at the Carle I had a wonderful time putting together and leading my special Sunday Thanks to everyone who came out and created with us by Diana MacKenzie Tags art activities foam balls hannah fiske paint printing roll studio internship tennis balls wiffle balls Art Studio Internship Program This entry was posted on Tuesday September 3rd 2013 at 1 37 pm and is filed under Internship Program Special Events Every Day Art Program Painting 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

  • Watercolor with Words | Carle Museum
    exciting ways The artist then must call forth the imagination With this in mind I thought it would be fun to make a list of words that kids could illustrate themselves Then I realized I could add adjectives and nouns to make more interesting combinations This would allow kids to generate ideas that were more atypical With that my idea came together I would have a bowl of adjectives and a bowl of nouns in which kids could draw out their idea and paint them using watercolors I chose watercolors because they offer a playful palette and a new way to explore than merely tempera paints Meghan helped me come up with the idea of using black gel pens in addition to the paint which added another dimension to the pictures The day itself was perfect There was a good crowd who all were very enthusiastic about the activity I particularly loved how quiet the atmosphere was as if the families were working very hard on their paintings As a somewhat quiet person myself I felt that fit my personality as well By the end the results were great I appreciated how creative the kids were with their odd combinations Some examples included clumsy city silly sky or speedy moon For the little ones it was great that they were able to explore with the paint even if they did not choose a word Overall I loved my Special Sunday and felt it was a success This post was written and compiled by The Art Studio s Summer Intern Margaret Frothingham For more information about The Art Studio Internship Program click here by Diana MacKenzie Tags margaret frothingham special sunday studio internship watercolor painting word games for kids Art Studio Internship Program This entry was posted on Monday August 12th 2013 at 8 00 am and is filed under Internship Program Drawing Every Day Art Program Mixed Media Painting 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
