Haven’t Heard about Art Adventures?

Our programs have nurtured and challenged thousands of children on the UES over the past 20+ years.
We know there are a lot of activities for your children and want to make Art Adventures on the top of their list!

CCA classes have a 3:1 teacher-student ratio, myriad material exploration, optional French, as well as lunch & art + after-school programs for Ages 2-14.

Cartooning Class with Mackenzie Younger

Visiting artist Mackenzie Younger demonstrates the basic elements of cartooning with Art Adventures Studio students!  After learning silhouettes, characters, friends and foes, backgrounds and thought bubbles, students tried their hand at their own cartoons…

“Mr. Mack” has published his own children’s book as well as shows his work in NYC.

Venetian Example with boatMariella and Suzanne

In our Venice Mini-Set Building Parent-Child Workshop Saturday, students learned exactly that.  Artist Cliff Gokenbach showed us how…

Check out the slideshow below, to see how it was done. Some students are already working on their next city dioramas at home!

(We love it when parents become learners with their children:)  Way to go Mariella!

And a great big THANK YOU to Cliff!
