Last week was all about Cave Art! This two day project included creating stamps from model magic and drawing with new materials. Exploring lines and shapes and even tracing our hands with craypas and pastels. Our Mini Adventurers finished the day “painting” cave art animals with natural elements:
What a fun experience for our Studio Art Adventurers! Some images from our Halloween Photoshoot with Visiting Artist, Katie Grammes.
We are super excited for our photo shoot with Katie Grammes tomorrow using the original costumed masks/ hats our Adventurers created! Here’s a sneak peek of their work! https://www.katiegrammes.com
Halloween fun! Non-Edible Faux Food Sculpture created by our 7-year olds…
Now we can’t wait for Halloween candy!
Our 2 year old Art Adventurers jumped right into curves, zigzags and straight lines in last week’s project. Continuing to develop those fine and gross motor skills, we played with crayons and liquid watercolor to create these “magical” wax resist watercolor paintings.
Try it at home! All you need are crayons, watercolor paints and a brush. Be specific: Feel what a straight line does, how the body movements change with a curved line or spiral, or what it takes to actually make a zigzag (lots of self control, starting and stoping!) Make an abstract drawing, overlapping lines, or a spooky scene for the Halloween festivities for older children!
Last week our mini’s class had so much fun exploring the imagination with our visiting artist, Dino O’Dell- It was a day filled with music storytelling and monsters!
Thanks again Dino!
This week, our Studio class takes a turn as we invite visiting artist, Katie Grammes to give us a fashion history lesson through the making of different Era inspired hats!
This 2 day project is just in time for Halloween. What era and/or theme will our Adventurers use to create their hat costume?
Visiting Artist, Dino O’Dell will share with CCA Mini’s Art Adventure’s class his wonderfully creative songs, stories and illustrations! We will take one character from his celebrated story, Zara and the Broken Spaceship and recreate our own versions with collage, fine motor skill challenges and of course- thinking and being silly!
When Dino heard about what we created for the children’s collaborative art project, he said “This is gonna be fun!”
Let’s see what he thinks after he sees the children’s versions! Coming Up….
