We Made Art this Weekend!

What story does your artwork tell?
Artist in Residence, Ananda Connolly presented her printmaking program called Paint It! Press It! Print It! Ananda's artwork will display a unique Please Touch Museum Newspaper based on stories collected from our visitors in the Story Castle. She used these children's stories as inspiration for her woodblock prints. We invite you to meet Ananda, learn about printmaking, her art making process and make some of your own original artwork to take home. Below are some photos of our visitors creating their own foam printing plates, pulling prints alongside Ananda and showing off their new printmaking skills!

Ananda will be in the Program Room on Saturday, February 26 from 10:00-4:00 and on Sunday, February 27 from 12:00-4:00. For more info. on upcoming education programs, please visit our Online Calendar.

We're all about learning through play.

Join Pinky, one of Please Touch Museum's resident puppets, on an inside look into all the fun, educational things happening at Philly's Children's Museum. This blog is not just about what we do at the museum, but about the educational philosophy behind why we do what we do.
