At the Metropolitan Museum of Art! Our little Artists are taking an adventure with CCA this week to explore the modern wing at the Met. Jackson Pollock, Barnett Newman and Alexander Calder are just a few artists we will be exploring and taking inspiration from to create our own versions right at the museum!
We have been super busy getting ready for an exciting fun filled Fall Art Adventures and checking out all the great current exhibits in New York City!
A must see before it closes, is Unfinished: Thoughts left Visible at the Met Breuer. Check out the unfinished works of artists both past and present: from Da Vinci, and Rembrandt to Degas, Picasso and Warhol. Let your blossoming little artists see for themselves the processes it takes to create artwork from artists we have studied in class!
The term Mandala, meaning circle or completion in Sanskrit, carries great symbolism in many world religions and philosophies. In the Art world AND in our classroom, the Mandala can bring on a form of creative therapy.
Our June Summer Camp Adventurers explored Mandalas and created their own version! Using elements found in “nature”, unity and balance were developed both in the art AND in the soul.
If interested in learning more about Mandalas and other forms of Asian Art, be sure to check out the Rubin Museum! And attend their annual block party this Sunday, July 17th, celebrating Nepalese culture as inspired by their recent exhibition: Nepalese Seasons: Rain and Rituals.

Cliff taught us that through learning how to transfer from any photograph or drawing, then using Sharpees, washes and values, students re-created Venice complete with poles and Gondola! Model Magic for the tops of the poles made it pop!
And so did mom! Venice Set Building Parent-Child Workshop Saturdays, lead by Cliff Gokenbach
As a music lover and as an artist who loves to portray the emotional aspect of music on people, this show looks very enticing…. Will let you know! http://www.nypl.org/events/exhibitions/portraits-sound
