African Masks and Family Painting...

We ended our study of texture this week with an African mask making class. The children used black beans, crushed shells, dirt, paper, and twine to make animal masks while exploring the concepts of  pattern and visual texture. Visit our website to sign up for our ongoing art classes. Be sure to attend the African mask exhibit at the Dallas Museum of Art before it ends in February.
River is our youngest painting student to date. He and his family participated in our family painting class this weekend. Kayli taught proper studio practice and introduced families to the pleasures of making art together.
