Across the Americas, the Biennial is helping kids learn how to draw, paint, play music and work with video. The word “Biennial” means every two years. The kids from a recent one created a stop-motion animation film. A stop-motion film is made when there is a surface with an object on it that you move each time you take a picture. The main idea of the Biennial is to connect the Americas through the mediums. Apart from this, the building that we went to also held things you might find in an art museum, such as sculptures and paintings. One of these was several shovels made from a lot of guns melted down to the shovel blades. These shovels will be used to plant trees. Another was a design made from brick dust. Make sure you watch out though because you might step on it! One exhibit showed all the materials used to make three-dimensional molded paper buildings with figures a quarter of an inch tall. It surprised me that the artists spent that much time and work to make things that were only temporary. (Well I guess it is called the Biennial.)
