Our finale to les Printemps 2019 was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art! We took one last art adventure exploring Modern, Contemporary & Fashion Art!
What a beautiful week to make art in the park…Central Park! We made like an Impressionist and went en plein air for our 6-9’s Art Adventures.
Our challenge: to paint a landscape outside using a combination of 3 materials- pencil, craypas AND watercolor.
This weekend is Sakura Matsuri at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens! Aka the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. In celebration of this traditional Japanese event and beginning of Spring, we created our own version of cherry blossom bonsai tree sculptures. Building an armature from wire was key in order to create a balanced structure to add layers of clay and cherry blossoms made of tissue paper to our miniature tree. The results were beautiful!
The day FINALLY arrived: slime day. For part 2 of our Joseph Cornell inspired Assemblage Art Apothecary Shadow Boxes- we created our slime jars to fill our shelves

2 drops of Food Coloring ONLY
1/4 TSP of Baking Soda

1 “Squirt/Glob” Shaving Cream ONLY
1 Squirt Saline Solution
A Tiny Bit of Baby Oil (Makes Stretchy).
• Mix ingredients in order with hands until done (WIPE HANDS)
• Put into jar with label- NAME your slime!
If too “Striated”: Add more SALINE.
If Too “Sticky”: Add more Baby Oil (Makes Stretchy- VERY LITTLE!!!)
If you add too much shaving cream: Slime is too Creamy /“Loose”
