CMA | October's Content

Howdy folks. As part of my Artist-Educator Residency at The Children's Museum of the Arts, I'll be making a weekly piece of content (ie. a printable pdf, a video tutorial, a piece of writing) for "The Look Make Show," the museum's digital platform. I'll be sharing a round-up of my content here each month for you to see, and it can also be accessed under the "Kids' Content" tab of my website. This month's theme was, obviously, HALLOWEEN! Here's what I made. If you'd like to use any of this content in educational or entertainment settings, please ask me first at cianamonet@gmail.com.


My first idea was to make project tutorials from the perspective of beloved Halloween monsters. I began with this bubble printing tutorial from the perspective of a witch. We got super busy this month with community events (more on that later), so I was only able to make two of this style of video. But I have a million ideas and would love to pick it up again in the future. This was my first-ever solo video and it was filmed on my iPhone because we didn't have cameras yet, so the production quality will only improve from here.



We were on a super-duper time crunch in week two, so we were asked to make a quick printable activity. I thought of the phrase "Which Witch?" and thought it'd be perfect for a maze. Email me for a printable PDF of this maze.





For week three, I made a printable collage kit of monster parts — partially from found imagery and partially illustrated by me. I'm a collage artist and love the medium, so I think this will be an ongoing series from me. I would love to see what kids do with it! For a printable PDF, please email me at cianamonet@gmail.com



For the fourth and final week of October, I made this invisible ink tutorial from the perspective of The Invisible Man. The video is made by me and narrated by my partner Ed. I think you can tell we had a lot of fun with it.


Overall, I'm super proud of this month's accomplishments and feel there's already been a vast improvement in production quality. Check back next month for more updates!
