Memories of Fall ART. Yayoi Kusama. New Fall ART 2019 Season.

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!

Yayoi Kusama ‘Infinity Mirror Room’ Will Alight in Connecticut This Fall

 

Our Art Adventurers constructed Infinity Room Dioramas using the reflective walls to create the illusion of a completely drawn Mandala circle.

Continue or Begin YOUR ART ADVENTURE with us this FALL starting  September 17th.

The Importance of STEAM in every child’s education

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.

Preserving the Early Excitement of 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!

Fall ART Classes to encourage AND motivate…

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.

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!
