Los Angeles Museum of Natural History

I've been in Santa Monica since mid-June getting acquainted with my second grandchild, I've had a couple opportunities to emerge from Babyland into LaLaLand. Today I met up with a few of the Los Angeles Urban Sketchers at the Los Angeles Natural History Museum. It's an old building that has been expanded; the contrast between old and new is striking.

Virginia Hein and Heather Evans Davis and I headed across the street to the lovely rose garden where we could have a bit more distant view of the original building. Check out their sketches here.

As I was waiting for the group I started a quick sketch of one of the old guys - triceritops maybe? And on the way in to the museum, I quickly sketched some fellow "subway" riders. This may be the only "subway" in the world that has to stop for street traffic.

  4. museums are the overseers of history as much as they offer associations with history that can undoubtedly be neglected in conventional classrooms. Regardless of whether you convey your youngster to a kids' exhibition hall, workmanship display, or science historical center, history has had a colossal effect on the advancement they are seeing. As guardians we don't need to be specialists on topics, however perusing out the plaques in the display and spurring your kid to make inquiries will energize an adoration for history.
