A great way to appreciate ART, spend time with your family…and make Art
During our School Year and June Camps, we make sure to go on Museum Tour Adventures to create ART while surrounded by ART!
And sometimes we even BECOME ART!
Try it and visit a Museum with your family this Summer!
OR JOIN US at the MET this FALL!
Our MUSEUM AND GALLERY TOURS AND Our FALL SEMESTER ART ADVENTURE CLASSES

As a very special Mother’s Day gift, our Art Adventurers sharpened their cutting skills and “toned” in on their color combination choices to create these vibrant Chihuly inspired Macchia Bowls! Using nature as his main source of inspiration, glass artist, Dale Chihuly creates these magnificent stained glass organic sculptures.

Happy Spring! In celebration of Spring & Earth Day and taking inspiration from the beautiful stained glass of Tiffany’s Studio, our Art Adventurers painted with glass paints last week! We chose our favorite spring flower, practiced our skills with outlining and were introduced to painting with this very special type of paint on transparencies.
Just look at the great color combinations with differing opaque and transparent color choices!
A Happy day after Valentine’s Day with captured heart and winter moments in a snow globe! Students built their very own winter scene in a globe using different seasonal elements and objects and hot glue. We then sealed it with glitter reminiscent of snow in distilled water and voila! What a great way to spend time with your loved ones by making art!
Our Art Adventurers came up with some silly and interesting illustrations last week! After cutting out different shapes from our textures, we collaged to share a scene and tell a story. What great storytellers and a great way to end our Fall Semester!
Last week our Art Adventurers took inspiration from the work of Eric Carle, painting with everything but a paintbrush! Using rollers, scrapers, stamps, sponges, and even toy race cars, we dipped our crazy tools in warm and cool colors to create textures! This week we are cutting these textures to collage our very own illustration.
What story will each Art Adventurer share in their collaged illustration?
We had so much fun at the MET last week! From Calder and Pollock to Barnett Newman and Picasso, our Art Adventurers explored the Modern Wing in a whole new light. Such a great way to enter in 2017!
Check out our Museum Adventures Tour HERE and what we created!
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!
