Let's make some ART!

artmobile_mark

Have you gone on a walk with your family hoping to see some beautiful green leaves? Ever wonder what inspired some of Salvador Dali’s paintings?  At Pablo Center, we are always exploring new ways and inspiration for creating art with families at Pablo Center’s ARTmobile.

ARTmobile connects children and families with the visual arts both in person and online. Its purpose is to provide fun and relevant art projects that have an educational aspect to them. These art projects are intended to take less than a half hour to create under the guidance and supervision of the parent or guardian of the child.  See below for some at home ARTmobile@home projects.

LEARN FROM HOME

Can't attend our ARTmobile in-person?  We have plenty of educational art projects you can create anytime from your own home! Limited materials  are needed and they are always fun and relevant.

Follow us on Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest new releases of ARTmobile projects for your family.

**Due to COVID-19, Pablo Center will continue weekly ARTmobile@Home projects to keep your family connected with the visual arts. A project preview with a list of materials and supplies will be announced on Facebook on Fridays with the project videos released the following Thursdays. These projects are adaptable, with limited supplies, and are easily completed by children 4 years-old and above with parent guidance.**
