Art Museum Picnic

M and I took the kids for the lunch hour on Friday.

M brought a picnic lunch, and everyone enjoyed the goodies (peanut butter and jelly sandwich, banana, and kettle chips).

We had to keep a lookout because the geese kept invading our picnic!

The kids found a resting duck on our way into the museum.

Once into the Arkansas Arts Center , we went to Carroll Cloar’s exhibit. The kids seemed very interested in Cloar’s work and when asked how they would describe it, they said “cool.”

Looking at art is a great way to spend the lunch hour!

There was even a kids area – which I thought was “cool.” While Al helped ZZ with the magnets, SS made his own composition.

Two things I learned while viewing art with kids was #1 When holding the two year old, I focused more on colors and shapes because I wasn’t sure what else to point out in the painting.

#2 Going to see art with your kids is a really good thing! Also, people will look at you approvingly and admire your genius family.

What a good looking bunch!
