Kids at Burlingame library steamfest - 2.9.19
Kids & Art hosted an art workshop at the Burlingame Public Library’s STEAM fest. From 11 am-noon, two dozen children gathered around the table to learn about animals and ecosystems. Each participant sketched a drawing of his or her favorite creature, then used paint to add color and design. Finally, the children used tissue paper to add vines, seaweed and flowers to the frames, showing the animals in their true habitats. Several of the children chose to draw big cats like tigers and lions while others made whales and dolphins. One little girl made a snail with a curing shell, she decorated her frame to look like a dirt pile. Another child made a blue morpho butterfly surrounded by multi-colored blossoms. It was a busy and creative morning!
Classroom support in foster city - 2.11.19
As part of our critical care patient program, Kids & Art had the opportunity to host an art workshop in the classroom of a child with cancer. This kindergartener, we were told, loves dogs and art and her friends. So we created an art experience that would honor each of those things. After reading the book Go, Dog. Go!, the children were directed to draw a picture of their favorite poodle, pug or beagle. Next, they laid down a layer of bleeding tissue paper and water to give their drawing a colorful, cubist effect. When the pictures were dry, they were cut out and affixed to two large canvases. These gorgeous murals will hang in the classroom for the rest of the year.
