News from the Creativity Studio

You Can Go Anywhere! 
With the help of some overhead projectors and our imaginations we traveled the world (and beyond!) this week in the Creativity Studio!  Children were provided a piece of transparency paper and expo markers, then were asked to draw a picture of a place that they would like to go.  When the children completed their drawings we placed them on the overhead projector and encouraged each child to interact with their enormous projected image!  It was very common for children to walk up and touch the projection as they tried to figure out the scientific process behind this seemingly magical experience!  Many children also had their picture taken in front of the projection, providing for a unique opportunity to “enter” their own artwork!  We traveled to such destinations as Disney World, Grandma’s house, the Wisconsin Dells, the lake, McDonald’s, the Washington Monument, Hawaii, the solar system, the moon, and more!  

Enjoy the Creativity Studio in a NEW LOCATION! 
The Creativity Studio has moved temporarily. During the summer months you can enjoy our same drop-in programs in the Explorations room, just off the entry/exit of the Museum.
