SKETCHBOOK COVER DESIGNS-
We record our progress with lines, shapes and pictures throughout the semester in our sketchbooks. Today we decorated them by “shopping” for colors we liked and patterns/ textures that pleased us. We made choices about what went first, then overlapped: “Larger first/smaller last.”
Cutting made simple:
Step 1: Act like you’re shaking someone’s hand.
Step 2: Thumb in small hole (top.)Fingers in large hole (bottom.)
Step 3: Alligator eats AWAY from you!
Step 4: “Open shut them” – a song we sing. (Or The alligator is REALLY hungry.)Press forward.
Adult: hold the (thin) piece of paper -one hand on each side.
(Watch your fingers!)
Pull apart a bit to make it taught. This helps them be more successful!
Gluing made simple:
(with a brush or a gluestick):
1: take your paper you want to attach.
2: Turn it over.
3: Go around the edges.
4: “Cris-Cross” in the center.
5: Turn it over and attach.
Don’t worry that they turn their scissors “upside-down.” They haven’t stretched their “rotation” muscles yet.
We’re working on it!

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.
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!
What a beautiful week to make art in the park…Central Park! We made like an Impressionist and went en plein air for our 6-9’s Art Adventures.
Our challenge: to paint a landscape outside using a combination of 3 materials- pencil, craypas AND watercolor.
We practiced some tree drawing techniques: the Y technique- drawing branches in the shape of Y’s!
We learned different techniques in watercolor & wax resist with craypas
and background, mid-ground and foreground to capture a more realistic landscape
