An official welcome to our first online zoom classes! Our Spring 2020 Art Adventures has taken us to the virtual world this week.
Here, we learn how to use a Zoom class! We played fun interactive games finding our mute button to make group Zoom classes easier to take turns.
We also collaborated together in our abstract line game, created a meditation guided landscape drawing using 4 lines and drew our version of the corona virus.

Our studio classes took it to the next level also learning how to create a transfer drawing.
What a fun + educational filled virtual day sharing art AND our new art spaces!

Loads of praise to my co-teacher, Jen & visiting artists Ellen, Natalie and Laura who made these past fearful 3 weeks a HUGE success for kids!
Not only did we pack up our SPRING BREAK into daily ART KITS (& delivered) we had our 1ST ZOOM SPRING ART CLASSES! WOW it is a new territory, but EVEN THE ADULTS HAD FUN!
Here’s some of our findings:
YES it’s true, this little guy looks like a CRUNCH BERRY. Let’s treat it the same. Capt’n Cook knew it was Fun for kids (to draw… look at the colors!) and better to digest it than to breathe it
Learning how to draw Spheres, we noticed the “3 Top” protrusions that look like cauliflower.
We’ll assume it’s friends are also far, far away in another galaxy in outer space!
After “Finding our Mute” button to make group Zoom classes work, Students had fun with these Abstract line games, Landscapes in 4 easy lines + Learning from the Corona Virus. #powertothechildren

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.

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.
