We visited The Children's Museum of the Arts today and it may have been MY personal all time favorite. The entire experience was filled with hands-on exploration. We drew, painted, sculpted, built, bounced, and just had fun. Here is their Site to get more information http://cmany.org/intro.php?pn=home. I definitely recommend visiting and remember it's free to visit with you Cool Culture card!
Here are a few photos from our day...
We met our friendly teachers for the day.
Who knew coffee cans could be sculpted in such a whimsical way.
We began our day with a whole group painting project, we got to bring our works of art home!
This is something I wish we had in the classroom...or maybe outside...A chalkboard wall. Children used chalk and small, wet paint rollers to erase their work and begin all over again.
A few children were drawn to the light table, where translucent legos were available for building on the table. I haven't mentioned this but I recently wrote a grant for a light table and received the funding so our classroom will have new light soon!
