The first issue of arTree magazine is almost here!
I have been working towards this goal for quite some time and now it is almost here. The first issue has been sent to a proofreader and will be available for a free download in a coupe of weeks. The first issue if about Gustav Klimt and tree of life/family tree. It is filled with art projects and activities, exclusive interview (and project) with a unique jewelry artist and much more. It is 13 pages of creativity.

arTree is wishing you a safe and fun Independence day!
These fireworks were made by a 4-year-old boy. They were drawn in crayons and then painted over with dark watercolors. Super easy.
Happy 4th of July! And in case you want to spend your holidays doing an art projects, we have an idea for you:
Louise Nevelson ( 1899 – 1988) was an American sculptor known for her big, monochromatic (one-colored), puzzle-like wooden sculptures.
She liked to collect interesting objects and finding new ways to use them. When her studio became too crowded, she started stuffing the objects in gift boxes and realized that by doing that, she made a sculpture. Learn more about her and her amazing work here.
Join us for FREE tile decorating during the Mill Creek ART Walk on July 11th from 5 to 8 pm.
Your kids will learn about Henri Matisse and decorate a tile (and a bookmark) just like he would. They can use templates or their imagination and the project is suitable for kids of all ages (even though preschoolers may need a little bit of help).
And while your kids are busy you can be the first to see samples of arTree’s new magazine – ready for the school year 2013.
