Project Discipline: Critical Thinking, Art
Supplies: art supplies of your choice
The Museum of Modern Art in New York City is one of the world’s best-known museums for modern and contemporary art. A painting housed there, that you may have seen before is shown below (photo taken from MoMA site).
Listen to the 1 minute audio below as you look at the painting. Then head outside and create a piece of art, using your own sky as inspiration. We can't wait to see your artwork. Choose any medium to enjoy - it could be a pencil sketch, a watercolor, a pastel...use what you have and what you like!
Feel free to share your responses on the Alaska 4-H facebook page!
