I wish for.. the whole world to love Art and Painting and Drawing. #ArtsEdWeek

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”

wishes from a 10yo, as seen @ The Color Factory

Happy Art-Making! And see you on the 1st day of class on Tuesday, 9/18!

 

Summer Art Adventures with Giacometti @ The Guggenheim!

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!
