Spring Semester Ends with ART Flying and soaring to Summer ART CAMP!

We’re designing and flying Kites in Central Park for our final week of the Spring Semester at Art Adventures. Adventurers create stained glass style kites with magical creatures as inspired by the work of Marc Chagall! While our Studio class takes inspiration from nature painting mini landscapes of their surroundings on their kites. Excited to see ART soar through the sky this week and even more thrilled for another successful Art Adventure this year! Thank you for another great year and see you for Summer Camp this June and for our Fall Semester!

Mother’s Day Art Terrariums @ CCA

To ALL MOMS NEAR AND FAR, Hope your Sunday was a very special day for you! We celebrated Moms the only way we know how…through love and ART! Our Art Adventures explored nature & art through dot art/ Mandalas and planting their very own Terrariums!
Mandalas are a spiritual/ritual symbol found in multiple cultures and faiths (both past & present) representing the universe. In celebration of all Moms in this universe and in our own circle of life, we created Mandala art or dot art on glass that carried our little succulents and on the stones that fill them. Students then follow step by step instructions to plant and care for their succulents.
