Making Art Together

All About Alice Day

Recently at the Carle, guests were able to experience the enchanting world of Alice in Wonderland through art projects, special programs, and a Mad Hatter tea party! The Studio's Fall Intern, Rochelle Malter shares her thoughts on the day below:


A Wheely Fun Car-Making Event!

Last month a special guest from the Cotsen Children?s Library of Princeton University came to host a special event for our Art Studio guests. Dana Sheridan, the Education and Outreach Coodinator, loaded her car full of supplies and tools and drove to The Carle for an exciting afternoon making Cars and Trucks and Things That Go! You might also recognize that as the title one of Richard Scarry?s books (Golden Books, 1998). READ MORE

The Best Art Project Ever with Guest Artist Huck Scarry

A few weeks ago artist Huck Scarry, the son of beloved picture book creator Richard Scarry, visited The Carle for the best art project ever!

Huck was visiting the United States from his home in Austria and was at The Museum to demonstrate how to draw all his favorite Busytown characters, including Lowly Worm and Huckle Cat on the big back wall in The Art Studio. As you can see in the photo below, we had the room full of eager participants following Huck step by step. READ MORE

Collaging on Sticky Surfaces

On a recent Sunday, one of our favorite artists, Keri Smith joined us to help host a masterfully-messy event in The Studio, appropriately called, Mess: Art Made by Accident. Throughout the Studio we had open-ended projects designed with Keri that involved randomness and chance, including Collaging on Sticky Surfaces, Funky Drawing, Hot Glue Sculptures and Painting with Drips and Spills.
