Kid’s After-School Program, Week 3



This was the third week of our after-school program. The kids learned about contemporary artist Nikki Maloof and her uses of space and composition. Through Nikki’s example, the kiddos made their own tapestry wall hangings. First creating a space, later adding a figure to create a unique composition. They used fabric markers and oil pastels on canvas. Kelly will later sew a dowel into the finished canvas pieces, ensuring a presentable piece for our gallery night!

The kids were the most creative we have seen them, thus far. They made pieces featuring women in history, flying nachos in space, turtle astronauts, dinosaurs, and a whole lot of cats. The goofy chatter and friendship connections continued from the previous week. It’s hard to tell who is having more fun, the kiddos or Kelly and I.

We are super excited for next week, as we will be working on block printing with the kids. It will also be our last week creating before our 5th week gallery night.
