Art Adventures Goes To MFTA

Our tummies are full, hearts filled with thanks and minds ready for more art! During our Thanksgiving break, the crew here at Art adventures went on an Art field trip to Material for the Arts!  Artist in Residence, Juan Hinojosa shared his creative process with us using the art form of collage. Simply using scissors, glue, and various paper & found objects, we planned, arranged and attached our materials on old LP’s!

What a great idea for future art adventures at home! Fun for the whole family, including the use of dad’s old 70’s & 80’s albums;)
Take a look at our creations HERE!
