It's no secret that we make a lot of slime here in the studio. So, naturally, I have a favorite kind to make. It's stretchy. It's squishy. It's marshmallow-y. It's fool proof. If you've struggled to make a successful slime in your home...try this recipe :)

Is this Art?
So, is slime art?
We understand that some may question a slime activity as part of an art lesson. It's not your traditional art form. ?
But, in it's process we get to exercise so many of our maker skills that are important for art. We make decisions about color and texture. We have silly ideas and the freedom to try to bring them to life. We test out theories and change our plans when things go awry. We gain confidence when we have success.
There is so much joy in the process. Maybe fine art needs a fine product at the end to "count." But we don't. ?. The act of creating is what matters to us. We're growing artists and makers and creators who will change the world. One slime recipe at a time. ? #theworldneedsmoreartists #makesomething
