Last September, my family and I went to spend an afternoon at High Line Park in New York City. While walking, David E. Carlson, local artist had a little free space for everyone who would like to create art and be part of a collective exhibit. He actually explain to me about his initiative and interests. My son wanted to be part of the project and try. Here are a few pictures of his experience. The activity did not take it too long but definitely enriched our artistic souls at least during that afternoon. A few mini cardboards, acrylics, brushes and of we go...

Just a mom can understand the meaning of this drawing, and smile while see it. Just a mom that takes a child from one field to another and wait for hours no matter the weather. Just a mom that fights yellowish pants stains, game after game can really appreciate what this drawing really means. My son did this picture as a free drawing last spring and I just love it. He picture himself in his baseball uniform and identify every little detail. Through this drawing I certainly can appreciate both, art skills of an eight year old and a mom's life that I'm proud to enjoy.
Love you little baseball player!!!
My daughter Ana-Laura is an 11 year old, that likes dogs. She had to create a self portrait for school and made it into a magazine cover. She chose to design a magazine about dogs. She did a great job portraying herself, I think her design was well planed and clean. She carefully chose the color and the details she wanted to add. Ana-Laura also made a clear statement about Bono's breed, our dog. Sometimes I get amazed on how kids can mix what they like in a single creation with out hesitate. You go Girl!!!
Hundreds of lego pieces, signed by visitors were collected at the end of The Art of the Brick exhibit in Time Square. The ides was that the artist, Natan Sawayan will create a big sculpture from those legos that later on will be display in a public space. It was an activity for all ages and a great way to keep people involve. We all participate, Francisco, Ana-Laura, my husband and me.
