This contemporary artists inspires: exploration of negative space, use of various painting tools and body, building composition and contrasting materials and lines!
And sewing on canvas?! They’ll love it!
Museum Adventures took Lauren Pohl, founder of Kidz Central Station, on a tour for 4-5′s to visit a list of artists tailored to young learners: Rosenquist, Yves Tinguely, Roy Lichtenstein and Ellsworth Kelly. In just one tour (at the Metropolitan Museum of Art), we learned about advertising, color and everyday objects (Rosenquist), discovered lines in everyday objects (Tinguely), made lines, dots and patterns (Lichtenstein) and made our very own color wheels and color-mixing window collages (Ellsworth Kelly)! There wasn’t much time to explore the stop-motion animation of William Kentridge’s installation, Refusal of Time, nor Al Held’s colored shapes… but then again, a good tour knows when to stop, leaving more for next time! Check it out:
Children of various ages enjoyed making works from Chamberlain’s crushed car sculptures, Oldenburg’s “Soft Sculptures” and Ellsworth Kelly’s color fields! A walk through William Kentridge’s “Refusal of Time” ended our tour teaching us about stop-motion animation. (A great app to download to your Iphone or Ipad, to make your own stop-motion animations is called Vine.)

Cold dreary days looking out of my window inspired the use of vellum and a basic color-mixing lesson using copies of his animals to draw or trace, color and overlay with colorful blues, pinks and yellows to make the secondary colors…
Hey color aficionados- Why is it you can still make a rainbow with pink?! (Ask Ellsworth Kelly.)
