Kids experiment with art at Studio MPL

Last time the Studio MPL kids got together, they made a bit of a mess. (That’s what happens when you channel Jackson Pollock.)

This Monday, our art club for kids practiced their inking and penwork; so the work was cleaner but no less impressive.

Don’t believe me? Check out the photos:

Don't be distracted by the fuzzy purple hood or the green sequin bow. Gavyn's doing some precise inkwork.

If you haven’t heard of Studio MPL, these kids are all sorts of spectacular.

They meet on the third Monday of each month and explore a different form of artistic expression. In the last few months, they’ve already learned different shading techniques for colored pencils and pens, made Henri Matisse-style prints and emulated Pollock.
