Upcoming7-11 years / Art Adventures Studio / Thursdays 4:30-6pm


 

(1 hour, 30 min.) (Min. 4/ Max 12)

This studio class is a place for students to use the artistic process as a means to make choices to express who they are as individuals.

Students are introduced to modern and contemporary artists using a wide variety of media and techniques including: paint, specialty pencils, pastels, charcoal, blending tools, clay, wood, plaster, wire, fabric, stop-motion animation and more.  Students also learn techniques to recreate what they see through live model drawing (clothed) and still life.  There will be a focus on portfolio building for older students.  Please visit the Art Adventures page for more information.

Myriad museums and galleries of NYC provide us with ample ideas from which to create, keeping our curriculum current with the art world of today. Students take 2 trips to U.E.S. galleries and Museums during the semester to be inspired in their own processes.  Visiting contemporary artists also share their techniques in this class.  Sketchbooks are kept in class to reinforce topics and to record development throughout the year.

William Kentridge yesterday inspires yet more creative projects for CCA.

Last night, Claire had the honor of meeting Mr. Kentridge at the “Head & the Load” performance at the Park Avenue Armory and shared with him her passion for bringing his work into the classroom for children.

Stop-Motion Animation At Art Adventures June Camp

Inspired by William Kentridge (click link for more on the artist) and his charcoal stop-motion animations during our week 1 of June Art Camp…we created our own! Working in teams, our 8-9 year old campers created Charcoal Drawing animations while our 5-6 year old campers created Dry Erase Marker Drawing animations.  These teams created new friendships through their daunting collaborations!

Now Check Out Our Camp’s Creative Animations on Facebook!
