NOT Painting with Tennis Balls

  This was going to be a post about our experience painting with tennis balls. But there's not much to say, because we never got very far.

For those of you who don’t know the Building for kids, it is a child centered museum. In this museum is a room called “the DaVinci Room,” which is a place where budding artists can get… Continue
