Last night, Claire had the honor of meeting Mr. Kentridge at the “Head & the Load” performance at the Park Avenue Armory and shared with him her passion for bringing his work into the classroom for children.
Welcome to July and Summertime! Happy 4th! As we all prepare for our BBQ’s, beach time & NYC roof top fun, we are also SO EXCITED about all the Art fun we’re planning for our Fall Season.
Want an outdoors art project the whole family can enjoy? Try our Matisse Cutout inspired bubble paintings! A popular project during our summer camps AND our Fall after-school program starting in September! Click HERE for more info on FALL REGISTRATION!
All you need:
different color construction paper
scissors + gluestick + straws
small plastic containers (to mix your food coloring & bubble solution together!)
and of course BUBBLES!
1- Mix your favorite color in your bubble solution. Make as many different colors as you like!
2-Using a straw for each color, dip your straw in your “bubble” paint and VERY gently blow through the straw from the other end onto your watercolor paper. (It will take a couple of tries!)
3-Mix and match “bubble paint” colors!
4- Choose your favorite colors from construction paper and cut out organic shapes!
5-After your “bubble paint” drys, arrange & glue your organic shape “cutouts” onto your “bubble painting”

Inspired by William Kentridge (click link for more on the artist) and his charcoal stop-motion animations during our week 1 of June Art Camp…we created our own! Working in teams, our 8-9 year old campers created Charcoal Drawing animations while our 5-6 year old campers created Dry Erase Marker Drawing animations. These teams created new friendships through their daunting collaborations!

We had a BLAST learning about art history, contemporary artists & even NYC history for this week!
Daily painting, storytelling through collaging, creating art with found objects & other mixed media and even directing, producing AND animating a short stop-motion film, was all in our mix for the week! So PROUD.
We are so excited for our first week of June Summer Camp here at Claire’s Creative Adventures. It’s all about Material exploration this week with traditional and non-traditional art, a little history in Art and sharing our love for the city we call home.
Stay tuned for the unique work created by our Art Adventurers!

MERCI BEAUCOUP ART Adventurers for another great ART year!
Our ART took to new heights and soared this 2017-2018 school year with the grande finale of Chagall inspired Stained Glass Kite-making at Central Park & Jackson Pollock Pants!
See the rest of our ART ADVENTURES HERE (click for album)
We’re designing and flying Kites in Central Park for our final week of the Spring Semester at Art Adventures. Adventurers create stained glass style kites with magical creatures as inspired by the work of Marc Chagall! While our Studio class takes inspiration from nature painting mini landscapes of their surroundings on their kites. Excited to see ART soar through the sky this week and even more thrilled for another successful Art Adventure this year! Thank you for another great year and see you for Summer Camp this June and for our Fall Semester!
While NYC finally enjoys this warmer Spring weather this April, CCA already has summer on our minds! 2
