Art Blast 2016

I just wanted to share a few of the Picasso inspired “Blue Guitars” that my 4-7 year olds completed today, at the Mobile Museum of Art. These three were my favorite. They are a lively bunch but very creative! If your children did not get to participate in Art Blast this summer, be sure to check it out next year. We have a lot of fun!


This is Brandon’s (4 years old). He cut out his shapes all by himself. 😉


This is Jayden’s (4 years old!). I love the expressive lines that she incorporated.


Ella (7 years old) did a great job adding monochromatic tints and shades of blue.

Magic Gardens in Philadelphia, PA

This art environment is a mosaicked gallery space and community arts center. Isaiah Zagar is the artist who created the Magic Gardens. Zagar has devoted himself to beautifying the South street neighborhood in Philly since the 1960’s. He started working on the Magic Gardens in 1994 and it took him about 14 years to create the project. The imagery refers to his family as well as events throughout history such as the 9/11 tragedy. The center is fully tiled from head to toe and filled with not only mosaicked tiles, but found objects such as bottles, bicycle wheels and sculptures. We had fun exploring the garden and I wanted to share some images taken from this beautiful place.
