Multimedia Sculpture: Thursday's Art+Play

"Today is Thursday,
Yes indeed!"

Today's Art+Play was Multimedia Sculpture! That's a fancy name for: "gluing all sorts of things together". The kids seemed to enjoy gluing (as most young children do) and the choice of materials interested them also. I mentioned, when demonstrating the activity to the group, that some people may prefer to draw on the card board prior to the gluing. Sometimes this helps to focus a younger artist (and limits the amount of glue that gets used). Let them glue, glue, glue and they will create something original and interesting to look at.

And now for something completely different: Check out this very cool web page in celebration of the late great Rachel Carson (born May 27th).

I always love reading your blog. However, today I couldn't get the link for Rachel Carson to work. Maybe it was just me, but I thought you might want to check it out.

Thanks Laura!
I'll look into it and try to correct the problem.
