Inspired By O’Keeffe Contest

If you visited the IMA’s Matisse exhibition last year, you might have noticed that the last room was full of children’s art.  Kids from around the state were invited to submit their own art inspired by the work of Henri Matisse.  It was really cool to see and an even cooler way to get students […]

Failure Day 3

Brace yourself, this sh*t ain’t pretty.   Thirteen years ago, I failed as a mother. Thirteen years ago, I was twenty years old. Thirteen years and one day ago, I was “knocked up.” I was what some might refer to as a “hot mess.” I made mistakes. I made wrong decisions about my future and […]

Getting Kids Face To Face at the IMA

We had the chance to check out the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s new exhibition, Face to Face: The Neo-Impressionist Portrait during member preview days a little over a week ago.  Of course, then life happened and I didn’t get to share much about it, so it’s quite possible you’ve already experienced it for yourself.  If […]

Tuesdays: Homeschool Open Gym 2

The first and third Tuesdays of each month bring us homeschool open gym at Gymnastics Unlimited.  As the name suggests, homeschoolers get free rein of the BIG gym.  There are trampolines, an inflatable bouncy thing (slide? house? I don’t know, but a big thing the kids love), a swinging rope that lands them in a […]

Every Sunday afternoon from April – October, you can stop by the Visitors Pavilion in the Indianapolis Museum of Art’s 100 Acres for a FREE craft time, Art in the Park.  We finally stopped in last month and had a blast.  Since it’s in 100 Acres, the themes tend to be related to nature in […]
