Art Explorers go to the Lascaux Caves

On Tuesday, September 13th, children 8-12 can learn about the famous prehistoric Lascaux Caves in France and create cave art.  We will turn our tables on their sides and tape brown paper to them to re-create cave walls. The lights will be turned off except for two spotlights and children will create whatever they want as if they were in an actual cave. Does that sound like fun?

That's Tuesday, September 13th at 4:30 pm.  Registration is open now.

Street Art

Timed to coincide with the Lascaux exhibit at Houston's Museum of Natural Science, we've created a book display called Street Art. Featured are books from prehistoric times--the Lascaux cave paintings, Texas petroglyphs, Egyptian, Aegean, and African tomb, wall, and cave art--right up to modern street murals, graffiti, and even--yes--yarn bombing. 

But even more fun is the wall itself. We've covered the wall surrounding the display in paper and for the last week our customers have been contributing their own 'street' art. Come and add your own!
