Taking from the greats such as Renaissance painter, Giuseppe Arcimboldo, contemporary artist Philip Haas created 3D fiberglass sculpture versions of his works, The Four Seasons. These will surely inspire all ages in Art Adventures for our current 3D food art project! Just in time for Thanksgiving, who is hungry for art?! Check out the fantastic sculptures by our Art Adventurers HERE
We have taken much inspiration from artists of both past and present recently! Using multiple paper materials, model magic and even recycled products, our adventurers created face sculptures as inspired by french contemporary artist, Junior Fritz Jacquet (check out his work HERE) and silly “Pop Art” masks as inspired by Roy Lichtenstein!
Lots of fun materials + Lots of choice-making! Scultped pumpkins were drop-dyed then added to the spooky pumpkin patch! Scratch art provided opportunities for learning what is negative space, which glows in the dark… Happy Halloween!
We’re SO excited! So we’re making some Spooky trick or treat projects to celebrate!
You’ve already seen our SPOOKY soaps, now take a peek at what’s to come this week!

We have been busy bees in this new fall season of Art Adventures! We already explored the NYC Art scene through bookbinding with Basquiat’s Notebooks, traveled down Summer memory lane with Assemblage Art Box building, and this week will be traveling down the rabbit hole in our 3D paper art! Here is a glimpse of this week’s adventure!

As we quickly approach the end of these summer days and the start of the Fall Art season, we’re so excited to see an artist that inspired some of our projects here at Art Adventures!
