With our Fall 2019 Art Season just around the corner, we couldn’t help but reminisce on last season. This article featuring Yayoi Kusama, reminded us of OUR version of her Infinity Rooms with reflective Mandalas! #ThrowbackThursday time!
Our Art Adventurers constructed Infinity Room Dioramas using the reflective walls to create the illusion of a completely drawn Mandala circle.

As we prepare for our Fall 2019 school art year, we are coming across many articles regarding STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART & Math). The integration of the Arts in our current education system is so vital in children’s needs.
Here is an interesting read that further discusses STEAM.
Art Adventures believes in it. Thats why we incorporate this in our after school art league programming.
JOIN US for our FALL 2019 season. We’re so excited to make art together with you!
Everyone needs support, especially when trying new things.
REGISTER TODAY for CCA’s Art enrichment kid’s league starting this September!
We boast confident, happy & excited children leaving our studio after each class.
What can your child develop?
Parents are often skeptical to over-schedule their children in the fall. School teachers warn parents to keep extra classes to a minimum during transitions.
We find, however, that CCA’s art classes are an exception. Why?
Because they are child-directed. They focus on exploration, as well as whatever is going on that day with each student, and acts as a supportive therapy in their schedule versus an extra “activity.”
Our studio is a place where children can rest from their busy schedules, receive individualized attention and to express themselves with or without words.
We can’t get enough of this Summer Sunshine! That just means time for more en plein air art. But where to start?
1. Choose your medium. Pencil? Pastels? Watercolor?
2. Pick your favorite outdoor spot (don’t forget water & sunscreen!).
3. And CREATE SOME ART
En plein air drawing in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art! (Spring 2019- Met Tour)
Want some more drawing or painting pointers? Try to spot one of our teaching artists at the park or beach…OR EVEN BETTER, JOIN US in the Fall!
This September, take part in our Youth Arts Enrichment League after school with various modern, contemporary, multicultural art classes for ages 2-14.
We will give you step by step instruction in what it takes to draw or paint landscape art …
….& SO MUCH MORE!
