Making Art Together

Sustainability in the Art Studio

In 2018, the Art Studio announced our intentions to reduce our plastic usage. Over the course of the past two years, we have spent considerable time researching sustainability, creating new systems, testing out new products, and intentionally designing projects with sustainability in mind. We’d like to share with you some of the things we have learned since that last post. READ MORE

My Imagination Window

We are excited to share a series of blog posts created in collaboration with the Curriculum in Early Childhood Education students at Holyoke Community College! The HCC students completed a Service Learning Project with Carle Art Educators this fall, continuing a partnership developed over the past two years. Students worked in groups to develop At Home Art Studio projects inspired by illustrations in The Carle’s online exhibition Now & Then: Contemporary Illustrators and Their Childhood Art. Students planned the projects, experimented with materials, and documented their process for the blog. The following is Caitlin Conroy, Grace Neffinger, Kim Burns, and Miranda Kortes’s description of the project. READ MORE

Springtime Art Gardens

This week, we explored art inspired by gardens. Gardens can take many forms: potted plants on a window sill, a carefully planted vegetable patch, or landscaped spaces in parks. The team took some time observing, researching, and imagining gardens, and used a variety of materials to create their own. READ MORE

Books with Surprises

This week, we invite our At Home Art Studio community to explore bookmaking and art with surprises. We often make books in the Art Studio as a way to encourage storytelling. Books can be filled with all sorts of drawings and illustrations, and there are countless ways of making them. Design elements like die-cuts and lift flaps add elements of surprise and make artwork interactive for others to enjoy. Below you’ll find how the team explored making their own stories and surprises, we look forward to seeing what you make! READ MORE
