Join us for a colorful journey inspired by Diana Thater’s Oo Fifi, Five Days in Claude Monetʼs Garden, Part I and Part II at the Art Cart this week. Young artists can look closely at her work, read books about colorful creativity, and explore the magic of color and light at our light mixing table!

Find the Art Cart on the Third Level and pick up your color mixing materials.

Do this at home! Brighten up the darkness with this colorful and playful Mini Art Lesson exploring light. Discover the science of light, shadows, and reflections through artful play. Bonus: you’ll only need a few materials to set the stage for extended play. Instructions here.
