The third Saturday of each month, admittance into the UMFA is free. It is also when they host a free art project for kids. This month we were directed upstairs to view the litho prints of Pablo O'Higgins. We were to look for 3 things that appear in almost all his prints - dark, bold outlines, hats, and depictions of the field workers. After looking at the artwork, we went back downstairs to the art room where each of the kids were handed a large piece of white paper. On it, with crayons and oil pastels, they were to draw something inspired by O'Higgins work.

Following our outing at the museum, we headed to Jordan Commons to see "Diary of a Wimpy Kid". Ian has been eagerly anticipating the release of this movie. We own all the books and we've all read them. And we were all surprised that the movie was pretty good - quite a funny little movie.
