Tiffany set up a field trip to the Dallas Art Museum for us and friends. It was our first time going there, but not too far from the museum we have been to in downtown Dallas. The parking was terrible and took us several times circling to figure out a good spot. Once we found each other and the museum the day got a lot better ;).
While on our tour we found our other friends who had been running behind. We did a general tour of the museum and then th ekids got to make their own creation. It was a really nice trip!
Here are our friends enjoying the paintings ;)
The museum guide was sure to let us know to be quiet (which the kids did really well at)... and it even seemed that the walls of the museum were there to remind us to be quiet ;).
Cool Roman statue

The creation wall. This is where you make a creation and trade for one already on the wall. Then yours gets to be chosen by someone else. It was really great to see the kids so involved with just scraps of materials to work with.

The boys admiring the art :)
This was one of the first pieces we saw. It is HUGE - like the whole wall huge! It is just chalk on the black background. I said that my child could have done this. The guide told us it is valued at 30 million dollars! Looks like drawing on the walls can pay big money ;). Interesting how what people consider art!
It was a long day. I'm glad my kids enjoyed the experience :). Such cute little artists!
