On Sunday we kicked off our Winter Field Trip Series with the Sketchbook Project Event, a two-hour collaborative art-making extravaganza, and it was great! We had about 60 girls show up to make pages for the sketchbooks, we were a little worried we’d run out of paper! The girls had really great ideas, and did some fantastic, cool artwork with all kinds of materials. We’re excited to take their work and bind it back into the sketchbooks, and to go see them at the Brooklyn Art Library in April, but here’s a few samples of the raw material, arranged by theme.
In Fifty Years…
Kate, 7- The sign says, “Not A Bus Stop.” Maybe it’s a zebra runway for the flying orange transportation device?
The First Ever…
Anwen, 10- The First Ever Bacon Doughnut
Sophie, 8- The First Ever Flying Eyeball. The word bubble says, “Can you fly to my mom to see if she’s happy?”
Rose, 8- The First Ever Healing Feather. The figure in the cap says, “What is that?”
The other figure says, “A healing feather.”
“I need one of those, I have a hundred scrapes and bruises.”
Sophia, 8- The First Ever World’s Shortest-Necked Giraffe
Chloe, 9- The First Ever to Sling-Shot a Lion
Mary, 7- The First Ever pair of Giant Scissors to go on an Adventure.
