Yesterday, the talented screenprinter and painter, Gary Lichtenstein shared his screenprinting process with our Art Adventures Studio class. With Mr. Lichtenstein, we collaborated on prints of wolf puppies and experimented with a variety of techniques. We even printed images we drew in class right onto the screen. Take a peek at the fun we had!
We don’t have classes this week, but we would like to thank all of you for sharing your creativity and making art with us for the past 10 years.
On November 2nd, Museum Adventures went to the Met to explore line in Van Gogh’s work, with metal embossing and color before going up to the roof to check out the last day of Tomas Saraceno’s Cloud City installation.
Let’s go together!
In Party Adventures, our creativity comes to light with this fabulous haunted mural and 3D Halloween scenes.
Last Thursday, we were visited by the artist Charles Hinman. Mr. Hinman arrived and in conversational style, revealed his 2D and shaped 3D canvases from the 60’s to present. We learned that his pieces have been collected by the Met and the Whitney Museums, in addition to across the U.S., Europe and Japan. His biggest influence is in Minimalist art after a time of Abstract Expressionism, DeKooning and Pollock, and was partnered with Frank Stella’s paintings, constructions and sculputre in the exhibition, “Shape and Structure.”
It was a fabulous experience and our students’ relevant and poignant questions of his work were mature and detailed. “Where do you get your inspiration?” Soley asked, among other great questions…Mr. Hinman excalimed, “My, that’s a philosophical question!”
Thank you Mr. Hinman, from all of us at Claire’s Creative Adventures!
