the evolution of the art studio

one place we’re passionate about here is the creation of a dedicated art studio. not an art center — but a true studio where creation and exploration into art in many shapes and forms can happen. we’re also passionate about having it be a place where many folks can come create (we adults need a space to create now, too!).

so, welcome art studio … we’re so happy you’re growing and developing!

this month’s theme is “things that grow” and we’re exploring plants and seeds as well as lifecycles (catepillar to butterfly) and working through what makes things grow (food, water, sunshine, rest, love). with that, the art studio has become a space where we’re exploring … sunflowers!

we’re taking the visual cues of many artists and their rendition of sunflowers — from van gogh to diego rivera to monet and others — we’re exploring how we all view similar things yet interpret them differently. this month, we’ll be using our art wall to display art from us all — from van gogh to my six year old, from monet to visiting friends. the discovery is in the exploration and the journey.

the beginning stages of the art wall -- looking forward to seeing it grow this month
