#AMoAGifts Day 8: School’s out today for holiday break! Remember the special child in your life by giving the gift of experience. Museum school classes meet once a week and give children an opportunity to explore various art media and techniques under the supervision of experienced art educators. http://www.amarilloart.org/pagesmith/23
#AMoAGifts Day 7: It’s TBT! Remember when George Rodrigue brought the Blue Dogs in Texas Exhibition to AMoA in 2012? An exhibition poster and lapel pin makes a fun and colorful gift for kids of all ages! http://ow.ly/FKmsa
#AMoAGifts Day 6: Give a gift that doesn’t need batteries! Head to your local craft store and wrap up some basic art supplies: brushes, paint sets, sketch pads and pencils are a good start for the beginning artist. For those with more experience include pastels, watercolors, charcoal or oil paints. Just remember to make room on the wall for the finished work of art!
#AMoAGifts Day 5: Georgia O’Keeffe lived and taught in the Amarillo and Canyon areas in the late teens and is an important part of the history of the Panhandle. The art catalogue Georgia O’Keeffe & Her Contemporaries accompanied by a poster of Train at Night in the Desert, from the AMoA Permanent Collection, is a thoughtful gift for the local historian in your life.http://ow.ly/FKbEB
#AMoAGifts Day 4: Our kids love dinosaurs…don’t yours? Give them Dinosaurs from the Encyclopedia Prehistorica Series of pop-up books and watch their eyes pop! Then follow up with a visit to AMoA in early 2015 for Wizards of Pop and explore other works by Matthew Reinhart and Robert Sabuda. http://ow.ly/FK9YP
#AMoAGifts Day 3: AMoA has copies of this fun book which explores Andy Warhol from his beginnings as a commercial artist to his apotheosis as a society portrait painter.
