Mundo Lindo is over for the school year. A new session begins on September 9. See you then! (pre-registration required.)
Saturday, May 15, we had a reception for the Mundo Lindo kids and their families. It was a great success! Over 40 people attended. This is Janice's family, all creating art together.
We tacked up some of their recent art projects on the wall, and some brought in their favorites for display.
One of my favorite things is seeing kids make art. My MOST favorite is watching kids and their parents make art together!
First the kids created a list of what they'd like their robots to do. Then then sketched out the robot, then re-drew it on watercolor paper and painted it.
They listed what the robot could do on their paintings. Printing money was a popular trait, as was movie aquisition.

Last weekend I taught the Tree of Life to adults at the Mingei Museum, so this week, I figured I'd do a similar lesson with the kids. I brought in prints and small originals of my own Tree of Life artwork to show them.
The kids could draw any tree shape they wanted, and I suggested they 'decorate' the tree with things that were important to them. Here Yailyn teaches Nataly how to draw an angel.
Just like when I taught the adult class, I brought in copyright free imagery from ancient Mexico for the kids to trace or draw or use for inspiration

We got ink! Mundo Lindo was featured in Cloth Paper Scissors magazine, this month! And we're proud to draw attention to HaitiHouses.org--children helping the people of Haiti by selling their handmade pins. As you know, Mundo Lindo kids actually raised $450 for UNICEF in Haiti.
