Turning The Page & SAIC: Art fun Saturday!

Today was a lot of fun! Hung out with the oldest kiddo today and joined a group we are a part of through his school Turning The Page. This program offers really cool, cultured, & free field trips for the members of the school that they partner with. They also host great family events at the schools every month to get families engaged with their student’s learning, meet other parents, etc. 

The adventure today was creating art work with recycled materials! I love being creative and trying new things out so this was lots of fun. Dereon enjoyed getting messy with the paint and exploring painting with different types of objects.


While we created masterpieces I took a break to observed the amazing view from the art room. 


The art class was held at SAIC at Homan Square. They offer so many different programs so definitely check them out if you or your children are into art and exploring. 

Today was a priceless moment for Dereon and I. He didn’t have to hear me say not to make a mess or have to create what everyone else was creating. He was able to be free and creative and let his artistic side out.


A huge thank you to Turning The Page for giving parents these opportunities to connect with their children.


Oh and I know you want to see some of our masterpieces so I’ll post a few pics below. Make sure you follow me on Snapchat so you can see all the behind the scenes of my daily random life. ❤️
