Looking to cool down this Summer?

…See AND make Art! If you’re melting in NYC, make sure to stay “cool” and visit The Guggenheim Museum to see the Giacometti exhibit! Open all summer. Sculpture is one of our forte at Art Adventures. And Alberto Giacometti is a great influence on our projects!

Check out the Guggenheim this summer and Art Adventures for classes this Fall and Museum Tours!

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!
