Lunch Doodles with Mo Willems
In response to the social distancing and quarantining in March of 2020, The Kennedy Center brought Mo Willems streaming to our homes with their artist-in-residency program “LUNCH DOODLES with Mo Willems!”
We’re in love with it! It is engaging. The kids giggle and participate, and most of all, are proud of the work they’re making. In fact, this Saturday, the first thing our son did was doodle a Saturday, March 28 design.
You can watch each of the 15 episodes on YouTube and there are downloads available from the main website: https://www.kennedy-center.org/mowillems

Episode One: Welcome to Mo’s Studio!
In his first LUNCH DOODLE, Mo welcomes you into his studio at home and guides you through drawing activities using one of his favorite characters as inspiration!
A note from Mo with more about the project:
When I became the Kennedy Center Education Artist-in-Residence, I didn’t realize the most impactful word in that title would be ‘Residence.’
With millions of learners attempting to grow and educate themselves in new circumstances, I have decided to invite everyone into my studio once a day for the next few weeks.
Grab some paper and pencils, pens, or crayons. We are going to doodle together and explore ways of writing and making.
If you have questions for me, send them to [email protected] and I might get to answer them.
You might be isolated, but you’re not alone. You are an art maker. Let’s make some together.

The Wecreate Lesson YouTube channel features art projects that require adult supervision (and are often messy) that preschoolers will love! Projects are geared towards kids ages 3 to 8 and are grouped by subjects such as Spring Inspiration, Winter Wonderland, and Summer Fun. These crafts often use sensory materials like painting with potatoes, fingerpainting, making collages and more.
Truffula Trees: A Preschool Printing with Koosh BallsThe following preschool art lesson is inspired by Dr. Seuss' story "The Lorax." With Earth Day and Arbor Day both in April I thought this would be an appropriate story to base a lesson on. Using koosh balls that you can find at any dollar store, children will enjoy the novelty of painting a scene from a familiar and well-loved story through printing.
