Prime Time for Seniors at MoMA

The Museum of Modern Art has a great Senior Program - a combination of gallery talks and art studio adventures.  Last time, in conjunction with the Brancusi exhibit, we created sculptures with Paper Clay.  This week we played with liquid watercolor, ink, and vellum to create layered images to explore color.  We looked at layered paintings by artists hanging in the museum, and then, with supplies provided for us, played with many types of mark making tools on watercolor paper.  We also used various dry media to create designs on vellum, which I cut up and collaged on the watercolor.



Absolutely delightful. You certainly take advantage of the many offerings in New York.
Big news here is that my oldest son and family (5 kids) are moving from Ohio to here in Sacramento. Finding a house in the right school district and a reasonable commute to work is a major challenge. He is to start on June 10th, so the push is on.

Dear Shirley,

I want you to know that I found your blog tonight. I spent some time reading some entries and found them really enjoyable. The experiences that you shared made connections to my inner artist. Thank you!
