Posts Tagged ‘stop motion animation’

Clearly mamma’s been a little too busy to blog these days… but last weekend we went back here for some Tribeca Film Festival fun on the street. We did some kid-powered spin art, stop motion animation with clay animals that we made, and best of all we got to see The Wizard of Oz on the big screen! Lots of girls came dressed as Dorothy – and as always Zoe (and Ezra this time too!) got a little face painting.

Zoe is older now and can really enjoy this museum more than the last time we were there. It was so great to watch her create! I think we have a little artist in the family. And Ezra loves the Clay Bar where we made little figures of plasticine, then were able to make stop-motion animation with it. This has become one of his favorite museum activities (he’s stolen my digital camera to do it at home as well.)
There were Irish singers and story tellers for St Patrick’s Day art fun, and of course lots of new friends for Zoe to meet at the easels. And Flubber! How could we forget the Flubber station?

We love the Museum of Modern Art in midtown, and especially love it for developing its kid zone/media lab in the back. The Isa Genzken Retrospective was a colorful, splashy exhibit that kept my kids entertained (as well as the parents.) If you remember we’ve been to their material lab before (see here) but this past week they revamped the space to have it focus on movement. As always Ezra loved the stop-motion animation program – and Zoe just wanted to frolick outside in the garden.
