Today in the #studio we're going back to basics: paper and scissors. Inspired by what's #nowonview in the #fwmoa, join us on our next Second Saturday Family Tour in June to see Dutterer's works up close! RSVP on our website.
Second Saturday Studio: Draw a Bird Day
The art museum is a veritable zoo! Today, on Draw a Bird Day, we're looking to the birds that have flown the coop onto the vases and canvases at #fwmoa. Follow along as we make a bird inspired by Art Deco from the David Huchthausen Collection.
Saturday Studio: Moody Masks
In the spirit of Halloween, we in the #fwmoa #studio are thinking about the idea of transformation and disguise. We created our own mask inspired by Karl Zerbe's Girl with Blue Mask. Will your mask be happy or sad? Strange or spooky?
Saturday Studio: Go with the Flow
Today in the #studio we felt like staying in the lines, so we went to look at Susan Janow's exhibition, now on display at #fwmoa, to get inspired by grids!
Saturday Studio: Cryptic Treasures
Today in the #studio we're cleaning up! Inspired by Louise Nevelson and her use of found objects, we dug through our trove of things to create mystery "treasure boxes" like the ones collected by Dorothy Gillespie. See how here:
Saturday Studio: Blass-tastic Scholastic Centennials!
Today in the #fwmoa #studio, we celebrate centennials! Local fashion designer Bill Blass would have turned 100, and, in 2023, the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards will! An Award recipient, we celebrate with a weaving project worthy of a Bill Blass dress.
Saturday Studio: Fish are Friends
Here in the #fwmoa #studio, the long, light-filled days of summer and turning shorter and cooler. Inspired by a glass vase from our new glass wing, we decided to play with the last of our summer light and make fish (or any animal) suncatchers!
Saturday Studio: It’s About the Art not the Artwork
This week #fwmoa educators were inspired by abstract art, in particular, the collages of Carlos Mare, now on display. See how they reused old artworks to create something new, just like Mare!
Saturday Studio: Flower Power
Today in the #studio we're inspired by the beautiful blooms of summer inside the museum, so, we’ll explore another way to bring the outdoors in: flower pounding! Learn how in this #saturdaystudio!
Saturday Studio: From Scrap to Nap
It may be hot now but it won't be for long! With June already flying by we're thinking of long summer days and cooler nights that require a blanket, or quilt. Learn to make a tie quilt in this #saturdaystudio!
