Making Art Together

Mural Prints

This summer we were inspired by the exhibition The Picture Book Odysseys of Peter Sís, and we learned that Peter Sís works across many different media and formats. He illustrates books and creates public art for spaces such as the New York City Subway. His public art got us thinking about working on a large scale, and how we could explore a technique in the Art Studio that lends itself towards larger-scale projects. READ MORE

Something that I didn’t get to explore with them is how the paper plays with light, creating shining vibrant colors that mix when layered. I thought about this when planning a Materials Play program for our youngest visitors and their caregivers, thinking about how they could stamp the papers, and we could turn those papers into a display for all guests to enjoy.
