Hello friends of the MoNA and lovers of naïve art! I bring to you a series of kids art that were created at the CREATIVE REMIX summer workshop that I facilitated at the Roundhouse Arts and Recreation Centre in Vancouver. The kids were ages 5 to 10.
I bring you 6 art-ivities from the workshop:
- Magnetic Puppetry
- Flying Superheroes
- Spin Art
- Outdoor Mandala
- Painting with Fabric
We begin with MAGNETIC PUPPETRY:
- Two or more animals that would not normally meet, are stranded on a tropical beach…what will they talk about?
- Colour, cut and attach magnet to your paper animal puppet
- Create a dialogue between the animals
- Present dialogue to class and animate your magnetic puppets on the mini stage provided.
The kids each held a magnet to control their paper puppets.
Magnets are tricky to use. However with some practice, the children enjoyed controlling the animal-puppets behind the backdrop and performing before the class.
