Claire’s Creative Adventures is officially starting our after school arts enrichment classes this week!
Week 1 we’re diving right into Memories, Art AND Science!
Haven’t Heard about Art Adventures?
Our programs have nurtured and challenged thousands of children on the UES over the past 20+ years.
We know there are a lot of activities for your children and want to make Art Adventures on the top of their list!
CCA classes have a 3:1 teacher-student ratio, myriad material exploration, optional French, as well as lunch & art + after-school programs for Ages 2-14.
We’re looking forward to many enriching activities this fall!
Share with your child’s class and friends to include them in this opportunity.
Join us for a trial class today!
We’re celebrating National Arts in Education Week! Counting down the days until Claire’s Creative Adventures begins our after-school Fall Art program. #BecauseOfArtsEd growing up, we here @ CCA share our passion & love for ALL things ART to enrich & teach children. To build creative confidence, challenge & expand our minds and open the doors to beautiful diversity in every corner of life.
Why Art? “Because Earth without Art would just be Eh”
Happy Art-Making! And see you on the 1st day of class on Tuesday, 9/18!
MERCI BEAUCOUP ART Adventurers for another great ART year!
Our ART took to new heights and soared this 2017-2018 school year with the grande finale of Chagall inspired Stained Glass Kite-making at Central Park & Jackson Pollock Pants!

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!
It was an exciting and fun filled week of Museum Tours with Our Studio & Art Adventurers last week. Each class and age group explored a different wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art learning about art from here and around the world through MAKING ART. Check out our Studio class tour as we walked through the newest exhibits:

We’re taking our Art Adventure, Studio, and Mini’s classes to the Met this week! Its all about exploring all the different art movements, forms, processes and cultures that the museum has to offer while creating fun and exciting art projects ….in front of famous ART!
This adventure brings us to a few spots @ The Met:
The art of Africa with our 5-7 year old classes, which also coincides with our in-class project inspired by the Adire Eleko textile Art of Yorubaland!
The Modern Wing with our 2-4 year olds classes, exploring color, shape, and line!
and some new exhibits just opened with our older Studio class!
We can’t wait to see what our Art Adventurers create at The Met! Stay tuned.
In the meantime, see some past Museum Tours with CCA HERE!
