We experienced another successful community art table! This time, I set out leaves with fabric scraps, tempera paint, glue, and colored construction paper. I had a prompt at the table, but children could use the materials however they chose. The results were pure magic. I love every single piece! [ I am a participant in...

I’m back with another community event at our local library, and this time, I made cakes from recycled materials and set up the table for still-life paintings. Children used oil pastels and liquid watercolor (my favorite combination) to draw and paint what they see! Supplies needed for Still-Life Cake Paintings: ~ Recycled cakes (I’ll go...

Last month I was invited into a local preschool’s Makerspace to do a project with their 4 and 5yr olds. I decided to use the materials they had collected for the space, which was lots and lots of recyclables, plus I brought in a few of my own goodies and we made recycled collages! Let...

These paper luminaries began as a project for our December “Solstice” guide. I was so inspired by how they turned out that I ordered a star hole punch and just kept making more! The idea started as a simple cutting and hole punching station for children using construction paper. In our December guide, we also...

We carved pumpkins as a family for the first time in years! It used to be a family tradition, for the 13 years we lived on a cul-de-sac and got over 400 trick-or-treaters every year. But then we moved and now we don’t even get one! This weekend, though, our carving mojo came back and... Read More The post Pumpkin Cottage appeared first on ARTBAR ..read more

I took a walk in our local park this week on the most perfect fall day. Temps were low 60’s, sky was bright blue, there was a slight breeze and just the smell of autumn in the air.
