Let's Go Play at the National Gallery of Art!

I nearly didn't get here I was so busy playing with my still life over at the National Gallery of Art.

According to NGAkids Still Life, I was actually creating "interactive compositions that mirror the paintings of the old masters". It goes on:

This Art Zone activity is suitable for all ages. Young children can explore spatial arrangement, perspective, proportion, and balance while creating engaging, interactive still life compositions that mix everyday objects with elements borrowed from famous works of art. More advanced artists will enjoy creating complex arrangements, and then switching to the painting mode to add and manipulate textured 'brushstrokes" that give their art a more abstract, painterly quality.
Well, I don't know about all that. I just liked tossing stuff off the table. :-)
