Pollack Art, Toddler Style ~ BSM

Last week, I hosted an Art Pollack playdate at my casa with the O'Mamas. Mel cohosted and we hung up canvas and let the kids go to town with splitters, splotters, dribblers, and blobs of paint. Once the kiddies got tired of it, the mamas had some fun of their own. And yes, there was paint EVERYWHERE! From the concrete to the hanging potted plants (and some even landed on my camera!).

I've hosted probably close to a dozen art playdates, but this was the first time we (read, the hubby and boys) had to pressure-wash the patio afterwards. There was THAT much paint and layers of it. All in the name of ART. But it all came off! Later, I cut up the canvas into rectangles and I plan to stretch ours over a wood frame and hang for display.

I have lotsa great shots, but this one of Mr. Z takes the cake as my favorite.

And I probably should note that Mia's Mama and I both have shots from this same playdate for our BSM, and like I joked around with her, maybe we're spending too much time together??? ;)

spend too much time together? try..not enough! Love your shot! You captured a classic Z expression perfectly, and I love your point of view.

Looking forward to the next art playdate...hope it's a super messy one again :)

Love you!

Oh. My. Gosh. This is freakin' awesome! Makes me want to move down to Austin so I could join in on the fun. ;o)
And GREAT photo!

Oh I LOVE LOVE LOVE Austin! There is no other city in Texas that I'd live in.

And our playgroup is way cool too. ;)

This is so amazing. I'm totally jealous of your arty/fun playgroup. And the kids probably had the best time ever!

Maggie said...

Lara said...

kim said...

That is too much fun!!! Did you have a kiddie pool nearby to rinse the kids off when you were done?
Your little guy's as much a work o art as the canvas is.

I want to come to your house for a playdate. I would love to do this, but we live in a rental with no space for such unbridled fun!
