Exploring New Mediums: Image Acrylic Transfer Painting

These past two weeks took us on an Art Adventure exploring new mediums! We were introduced to acrylic gel medium to transfer printed images from a newspaper and onto our acrylic paintings. We also got a sneak peek/ mini- intro to gold leaf and the process of gilding!

Our Adventurers exhibited so much patience in the paper removal process!

Tres bien! Our results are worthy of a gallery display. Visit our GALLERY here!

IN CCA TODAY: SNOW DAY ART DAY @Art Adventures!

The Winter Snow was our theme this week for Art Adventures: From Salt dough Snow Mama & her babies (with our 2-5 year old classes) to Winter Wonderland Salt Watercolor Landscape exploration (our 8-11 year old class)! It was a fun snow art day for all ages.

Last Week was Chinese (Lunar) New Year! We celebrated by sculpting a pig with air dry clay, painting with acrylics, then exploring Chinese Ink, Iridescent Watercolor paints & Bamboo brushes to create beautifully balanced abstract Calligraphy paintings! Practice, Practice, Practice was the name of the game when using our Line & Shape Families to create with the ink.
