The Making Table
Welcome to The Making Table! This is a virtual gathering place where you and your family can come for ideas on incorporating art and creativity into your daily lives. The Making Table was born in 2014 when my dear friend and colleague, Ann, approached me with the idea to start a blog. With over twenty years of museum and art education experience between us, we wanted to share our expertise with you. We have come to learn first hand the power of teaching children and families about art and the extraordinary gifts art literacy has to offer. Ann has gone on to advance her career as a museum educator at the Denver Art Museum while I remain here to carry the torch of our combined efforts! The projects and ideas that you’ll find at The Making Table celebrate curiosity, imagination, and creative risk taking. Within are tutorials that embrace multiple styles of learning and blog posts that explore the joyful relationship art has with music, dance, literature, and nature. Many of the art activities on The Making Table are process oriented as I find that the best art often comes from the messes we make! Please gather around the table with me and together we will make art and create lasting memories!
