October arrived in a flash! So you know what that means! We are spending these next few weeks creating art with Halloween in our hearts & Giacometti sculptures in our minds! Celebrating his October Birthday all month with professional level materials & tools (plaster wrap, construction & acrylic paint), art problem solving challenges, and of course creative spooky fun!

Giacometti’s The Nose & our Halloween version of his Surrealist sculpture
We continue to prepare for this Fall and our Summer tours by taking a trip to the Guggenheim this weekend to see the current exhibit on Giacometti. (click for more info on the exhibition)!
While mostly known for his sculptures, Giacometti was also a prominent Painter AND Printmaker. Who knew! He experimented & created multiple prints starting with wood etching with his father, Giovanni Giacometti (well known Swiss Impressionist Painter) when he was still a schoolboy!
A super educational retrospective and must see before it closes on September 12th!
FUN GIACOMETTI FACT: Ever notice how shadows are long and thin? Many of Giacometti’s sculptures are actually from his observation of the shadow!
We highly recommend visiting. Can’t make it with the family? Leave it to us to give your little Art Adventurer a tour!
Don’t miss this fun and exciting exhibition full of art learning opportunities for your little artist! We are pumped to share our sculpture and drawing projects with you.
Take this Museum Trip with Us!

Max Ernst/ Alex Katz self portraits give us an opportunity to play with the surreal, use flat colors & focus on symbols…. What more does a mother want than to know what’s going on in her child’s mind, who they see themselves to be as well as who they are at this moment in time.
