The Making Table

Last month the Little Nies and I enjoyed a wonderful day of art!
Krisanne and Ann from The Making Table 
 hosted a really cool really fun event for us.
We enjoyed a private tour at the MOA with interesting dialogue 
about some of the beautiful art at the museum, and we asked questions.
Our tour was based on how different artists perceive and display   
(in some cases very personal) family traditions and genealogy. 
After our tour, we went back to Fox Hill where 
Ann and Krisanne together lead us in our own family art project. 
With the help of prompts, we wrote down some significant times in our lives and some of our "favorites";  like songs, food, stories, 
people, animals, colors, friends, and books.
Also we described a little about ourselves and our personality traits.  
After, we pieced them all together on 
long strings and hung them on a giant hoop.  
I am so excited to hang this sentimental family art piece in our project room. 
I have just the spot!   
The Little Nies have more circles to complete before
we are ready to hang it.  
They keep thinking of more memories and more ideas to add to the hoop.
This project has been so cool because it's been ongoing. 
The Making Table is offering private art parties. 
Included in the party is a trip to a local art museum or gallery for a 
private tour followed by art making conveniently at your home.  
You can learn more about private parties and neat art ideas for your children
