November means Museum Art Adventures!

For our first museum tour this new school year, we traveled to the Guggenheim Museum of Art!

Our Art Adventurers viewed the Guggenheim’s Artistic License & Basquiat exhibitions exploring lines, shapes and symbols, oh my!

 

It was all about abstract modern and contemporary art reviewing

our forms & sculptures with Giacometti;

 

geometric shapes, lines and patterns with Louise Nevelson; negative space, balance & color with Louise Bourgeois;

 

 

and finally, use of symbols, words and emotions with Basquiat.

IT’S HALLOWEEN WEEK at SPOOKY ART ADVENTURES!

Last Week at Art Adventures, we started our 2 part Halloween Haunted 3D Scene with pumpkin patch sculptures! We sculpted spheres and coils & used our drop-dye technique of “One Drop, Stop!” 🛑

This week, we shop, arrange & build our spooky halloween scene with spiders and tombstones and ghosts, oh my!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN WEEK!!

Costume, Art and Social Justice…Sunday Reads

With costumes on our minds and art in our souls, we spend time thinking about the benefits these elements have outside of just aesthetics and fun.

For our Sunday reads, we look into the work of Nick Cave for inspiration on artistic costumes with a message of social justice and love for all.

Nick Cave’s Soundsuits and his other art projects

 

CUTTING & GLUING MADE SIMPLE in this week’s ART ADVENTURE

SKETCHBOOK COVER DESIGNS-
We record our progress with lines, shapes and pictures throughout the semester in our sketchbooks. Today we decorated them by “shopping” for colors we liked and patterns/ textures that pleased us. We made choices about what went first, then overlapped: “Larger first/smaller last.”

Cutting made simple:

Child:
Step 1: Act like you’re shaking someone’s hand.

Step 2: Thumb in small hole (top.)Fingers in large hole (bottom.)


Step 3: Alligator eats AWAY from you!


Step 4: “Open shut them” – a song we sing. (Or The alligator is REALLY hungry.)Press forward.

Younger:
Adult: hold the (thin) piece of paper -one hand on each side.
(Watch your fingers!)
Pull apart a bit to make it taught. This helps them be more successful!

Gluing made simple:
(with a brush or a gluestick):
1: take your paper you want to attach.
2: Turn it over.
3: Go around the edges.
4: “Cris-Cross” in the center.
5: Turn it over and attach.

Don’t worry that they turn their scissors “upside-down.” They haven’t stretched their “rotation” muscles yet.

We’re working on it!

THIS WEEK IN CCA: NOT IMPASTA but IMPASTO!

We explored new tools and painting techniques in THIS WEEK’S #ARTADVENTURES .

Our 2- 8 year old adventurers mixed sand with paint and used palette knives to make an

Impasto Painting

A technique used in painting, where paint is laid on an area of the surface in very thick layers.

Palette knives help to achieve this goal, allowing strokes to be visible. We also used scrapers and forks to create different curvy, straight and angle lines from our line & shape families.
