Art a la Carte: A Day at the Circus 9/28/13
In celebration of Smithsonian Museum Day, the Ellen Noel Art Museum held a special art event for the community.
Demonstrations of everything from origami, drawing, and painting were available for children ages two to 12 at today's free event.
All of it was circus themed in honor of the newest exhibit which features oil paintings from the worlds tallest man, Jake Elrich, who performed in the circus.
The highlight of this year's event?
"Our 3-D printing studio. So we'll not only be printing gifts and souvenirs for the children but we'll also do a demo in the classroom," says Executive Director George Jacob.
The Ellen Noel is the only museum in Texas with a 3-D printing display and it uses bio-degradable materials.
