Featured: Create With Me

Create With Me, Winter 2012
With my kids in the studio hat on, I was interviewed by Amber Demien, the editor of Stampington's newish magazine Create With Me, about our family's summer trip to the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum (which I described on my other blog here). The piece is featured in the Winter 2012 issue, now in stores. It's really exciting (for the kids, too!) to see our trip written up and displayed so beautifully. The opportunity to be a part of the magazine was unexpected but quite welcome--so flattering!

If you're unfamiliar with the magazine, it's filled with ideas for adult-child artistic collaboration. I'm fairly passionate about providing my kids with opportunities for process-oriented art, so it's pretty exciting to flip through an entire magazine of ideas. The other night I was looking at it before bed and was actually surprised for a second when I flipped to the pages pictured above, even though, of course, I knew they were there. Oh! That's us. How cool!

And if you are anywhere near Lincoln, Massachusetts, take a day to visit the deCordova. It's a really great place for families.

Congratulations - that is such a big honor! I wasn't familiar with this magazine until I saw the pictorial on Maya's blog but it looks like a wonderful magazine. Can't wait to check it out and read all about your trip! Glad I found your blog too!!!!
