We’re celebrating National Arts in Education Week! Counting down the days until Claire’s Creative Adventures begins our after-school Fall Art program. #BecauseOfArtsEd growing up, we here @ CCA share our passion & love for ALL things ART to enrich & teach children. To build creative confidence, challenge & expand our minds and open the doors to beautiful diversity in every corner of life.
Why Art? “Because Earth without Art would just be Eh”
Happy Art-Making! And see you on the 1st day of class on Tuesday, 9/18!
We continue to prepare for this Fall and our Summer tours by taking a trip to the Guggenheim this weekend to see the current exhibit on Giacometti. (click for more info on the exhibition)!
While mostly known for his sculptures, Giacometti was also a prominent Painter AND Printmaker. Who knew! He experimented & created multiple prints starting with wood etching with his father, Giovanni Giacometti (well known Swiss Impressionist Painter) when he was still a schoolboy!
A super educational retrospective and must see before it closes on September 12th!
FUN GIACOMETTI FACT: Ever notice how shadows are long and thin? Many of Giacometti’s sculptures are actually from his observation of the shadow!
We highly recommend visiting. Can’t make it with the family? Leave it to us to give your little Art Adventurer a tour!
Don’t miss this fun and exciting exhibition full of art learning opportunities for your little artist! We are pumped to share our sculpture and drawing projects with you.
Take this Museum Trip with Us!
or Join us for our Fall classes where we take many of our project inspiration from our Museum exploration!
We took a trip to the Cooper Hewitt this week where they brought color, science & theory to life in their current exhibitions, Saturated: The Allure and Science of Color and The Manhattan Color Walk! Learn all you need to know about color: from color theory used by artists & designers, right down to the chemistry of colors! Then take a walk on the COLOR WALK to see some 265 different colors that make up Manhattan! You even get a cool guide that reveals every individual color corresponding to a specific siting on the streets of this borough. Click to Learn More!
We are ALL ABOUT COLOR at CCA! Do I foresee an Art Adventures project in our future Fall program -using a favorite color found in our Art Adventurers neighborhood?! Stay Tuned! And be sure to keep being inspired this summer with great art at museums and all around your neighborhood!

Jack’s fascination with transportation left his parents in a difficult situation. Are front-loaders sold at costume shops? WW1 fighter planes?
My mother used to sew our costumes, but who does that anymore? Well, you don’t necessarily have to… These creative parents decided to BUILD them. Cardboard is easily found, but as Jack’s parents concluded, making correct armholes so that Jack could maneuver his candy-gathering was of utmost importance.
Way to go Jack for being relentless in your costume dreams! … and he’s only 6! Perhaps the fact that Jack’s dad worked for the MTA had something to do with it?
By the way, these costumes even articulate! I’m so excited to see this year’s costume: The Intrepid!

We are so excited to have professional scenic artist Cliff Gokenbach teach us the secrets of how artists create for the movies. He can’t tell us about the new Spiderman he’s working on, but he can help us make any imaginary set we can dream of! Here, he’s gone to Venice…
At our Venetian Mask Party (great for all ages,) we adorned our own Venetian Masks with jewels, feathers, and so much more.
Take a peek at how we dazzle in our disguises!
