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.
Holiday Pumpkins provide a unique opportunity for our introduction to the art of Mosaics… as well as the idea of recycling candy!
Students this week will follow Contour Lines to create shapes, explore line families and “See-Through” or Negative Shapes. They also practiced Unity and Variety, the cornerstone to making elevated art, as well as practice patterns in this Fall Window Mosaic. Wait until the light shines through!
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.
Lots of fun materials + Lots of choice-making! Scultped pumpkins were drop-dyed then added to the spooky pumpkin patch! Scratch art provided opportunities for learning what is negative space, which glows in the dark… Happy Halloween!
Children’s art tours with Museum Adventures @ the Metropolitan Museum of Art inspire everyone around them, making them look further into the pieces we do! The children were drawn to a Cy Twombly and took it upon themselves to go to find the hidden marks and letters for which he is known. Excited to see our Cy Twombly activity mural in Art Adventures provide the stimulation and connection!
