Many of you know that I am a Docent at the Lowe Art Museum at the University of Miami. It is great fun to give tours to children from kindergarten all the way to seniors. It is a service that I give that also gives back to me. Hearing the views of different children and adults about the art during our discussions is very stimulating. I also get inspired each time I see the traveling exhibits.
The museum not only offers tours, but also hands-on art activities for the children. These past few months I have concentrated my services to these activities. What fun to watch others create!
On Sunday, I volunteered to assist with the Family Art Day. Although it was a cloudy, rainy day, there were lots of family/kids in attendance.
We had three activities: 1) a shadow puppet show 2) printing designs on Greek vases, and 3) using the shadow puppets to tell a story. It was so much fun, the parents were even creating.
Make plans to attend our next fun Sunday at the Lowe. Our next family day will be on December 13th from 12-3 pm. The topic will be All About Me? Portraits!
