Our finale to les Printemps 2019 was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art! We took one last art adventure exploring Modern, Contemporary & Fashion Art!
What a beautiful week to make art in the park…Central Park! We made like an Impressionist and went en plein air for our 6-9’s Art Adventures.
Our challenge: to paint a landscape outside using a combination of 3 materials- pencil, craypas AND watercolor.
This weekend is Sakura Matsuri at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens! Aka the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. In celebration of this traditional Japanese event and beginning of Spring, we created our own version of cherry blossom bonsai tree sculptures. Building an armature from wire was key in order to create a balanced structure to add layers of clay and cherry blossoms made of tissue paper to our miniature tree. The results were beautiful!
New artwork is NOW on display at Oren’s Coffee Shop on Lexington Ave. between E 79th & E 80th Street (in the UES) for CCA’s rotating Student’s Art Exhibition!
Be sure to stop by, grab a coffee or tea and check out the beautiful artwork created throughout this school year.
Again, a very special thank you to Oren’s and Oren’s Manager- Jasmin for allowing CCA to continue our revolving exhibition of student artworks!
The Winter Snow was our theme this week for Art Adventures: From Salt dough Snow Mama & her babies (with our 2-5 year old classes) to Winter Wonderland Salt Watercolor Landscape exploration (our 8-11 year old class)! It was a fun snow art day for all ages.
We had 3 fantastic ART FILLED days at Claire’s Creative Adventure’s Winter Camp on our 1st week of 2019!
It was all about Abstract Art, thinking outside the box & exploring new AND unique materials! Ending with a trip to the Guggenheim!
