Portraits are the
theme for these fun school vacation activities. Create a colorful collage person, learn to draw a portrait, construct an unusual head, and print an
expressive face. These are just some of the projects we have planned!



November 29:
Colorful Collage Faces

Using bright colored paper and fun scissors, children will create collaged
faces that are unique and playful.



December 24:
Portrait Drawing
Children will use special drawing materials to explore the
elements of a face through drawing.  From
proportion to detail and expression, children will learn a few new drawing
skills, and come away with a special portrait drawing.



December 26:
Print an Expressive Face

Create abstract faces with foam
shapes; roll on some fun colored ink, and print onto to assorted papers.  Children will come away with multiple printed
faces!



December 27:
 Painted Portraits

Join us to draw and paint portraits with watercolor materials that blend and
mix in beautiful ways.  



December 31:
 Construct an unusual head

Assorted materials of all kinds will be available to build and assemble
outrageous and unexpected heads. Try bottle caps for eyes, packaging material
for hair, or cardboard scraps for noses; what kind of head can you create

 

Children under age 6 participate with an adult; 7
and older, adults must remain at the Museum. Adults pay regular museum
admission, participating children: $3 members, $6 non-members.
