Candy Stamp Valentines and Cotton Candy Sculptures

CMA friends and families celebrated the season of love with a morning of artmaking with a side of Valentine's Day treats.

Valentine's Day and artmaking go hand-in-hand, and no one does this holiday better than Children's Museum of the Arts!

Check out our top 5 favorite moments from this year's Valentine's Day Art Party, raising funds to CMA's free art programs across the city.

1 . Artist Alex Alpert showed us how to use candy as stamps to create edible Valentine cards.

2. Puppy love was a popular subject at the Clay Bar.

3. We marveled at Japanese cotton candy that was almost too cute to eat – but we enjoyed it anyway!

4. CMA Artist Instructor Emma showed us how to create crepe paper flower bouquets that rivaled the work of any professional florist.

5. Artist Michael De Feo generously contributed two of his artworks for our silent auction, prompting a friendly bidding war that raised nearly $3K for CMA kids.

A huge thank you to our fearless board for putting together such an sweet party and special thanks to photographer Chris Pepperman for capturing the morning in style!
