Our young artists from Studio MPL practiced their drawing by using their favorite snowman, Olaf, as a model.

Studio MPL is our art club for kids in first through fifth grade. Each month they try something different: making sun catcherspainting sunsetsweaving and even trying out some of Jackson Pollock’s techniques.

This month, they practiced drawing. By breaking it down into steps, they transformed familiar geometric shapes into Olaf.

Even the most complicated character can be recreated as a series of shapes.

Maria learns how to combine simple shapes to make complicated characters.

This was our last Studio MPL meeting of the year, but it will be back again in January.

Next month’s session will be Jan. 19 at our Main Branch. (Yes, we’re open on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.) You can register for it here.

Studio MPL meets on the third Monday of each month. If your kid likes art—any kind of art—they can join the fun!

Giselle offers some drawing tips to Taryn during Studio MPL. One of the great things about our art club is that the kids can help one another.
