This is a painting I made as a gift for my sister. She took a weekend break to spend time with the tribe and brought me a pair of quad roller skates (because why wouldn’t you buy your uncoordinated sister who can’t skate a pair of roller skates 🙂 ) which FriBoy loved so much that he drew himself skating with his aunt.
Sunday we went sledding on the Barry Brust track in Basse Ville Fribourg, which was a first for us. FriBoy loved it and I hope it will become a tradition.
Today for our Artsy Wednesdays we tried another art and science experiment, a colorful acid-base chemical reaction painting.
I was clueless this morning what to do for a creative activity but when desperate, clay is always a good idea.
The Communications Museum in Bern had a makeover recently and is probably the best educational experience we’ve had in a museum. To me it’s proof of how much museography has evolved and how by embracing digital era technologies museums can become learning hubs for both adults and kids.
A STEAM challenge and a creative way to reuse old toys’ parts – Pointillist robot
First and foremost, I think education should have an interdisciplinary approach to art and science. Teaching them separately is like mining the human brain for an isolate resource and ignoring the rest. I think it goes against the holistic evolution of the human brain and body to exploit an aptitude in favor of another and compartmentalize disciplines.
Nicolas de Staël, J Balvin, Willy William – mixed media painting: music, acrylic, collage and lots of dancing.
A friend recommended this place, it’s a new indoor playground in Bern. We really loved it. It has a very hip, creative, diy air like many playgrounds in Bern as compared to Fribourg.
We recently visited the Museum of the district Pays d’En Haut in Château d’Oex which is hosting a temporary exhibition of Swiss paper-cut art from the Simmental, Saanenland and Paysd’Enhaut regions of Switzerland.
