Our tummies are full, hearts filled with thanks and minds ready for more art! During our Thanksgiving break, the crew here at Art adventures went on an Art field trip to Material for the Arts! Artist in Residence, Juan Hinojosa shared his creative process with us using the art form of collage. Simply using scissors, glue, and various paper & found objects, we planned, arranged and attached our materials on old LP’s!
What a great idea for future art adventures at home! Fun for the whole family, including the use of dad’s old 70’s & 80’s albums;)
Take a look at our creations HERE!
Thank you to Material for the Arts and Juan for sharing this experience with us! Be sure to check out Juan’s work in person at his opening Blonde Ambition on December 17th! Click HERE for more info.

Be sure to check out her amazing work starting September 19th in Bushwick & November 7th in Chelsea!

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
