Today Wren got to flex her art muscles at a fun little art space that opened a couple weeks ago just down the street from our rental here in New Orleans. It is called the Mini Art Center and they have a mix of crafts you can pop in and do with the kids for only $5 a kid, as well as a really funky gallery space where real artists showcase their creations in a way that allows kids to get up close and personal with them.
If you are ever in the area and looking for a way to fill an afternoon I highly recommend checking them out! I really wish there was something like this at home as well, because it is so nice to hang out, make a little mess and not worry about cleaning it all up! We are pretty artsy at home, but by the time I bring out the materials and then clean up again at the end it turns into a big production.
We even got Sean to do his first painting in forever and caught him playing with the blocks while we made finger puppets LOL.
