We love Sesame Street, so on April 18th, when the word of the day was SCULPTURE, we couldn’t have been more excited. Children who have been on our Museum Adventures tours may recognize some of the artists: Rodin, Brancusi, and David Smith.
Nathalie Djurberg animal sculpture required many steps! Thinking about a skeleton inside of a sculpture to keep it strong, which shape to make it and which animal to build! With the use of armature wire, aluminum foil, plaster wrap and paint, these are our amazing creatures that took 3 weeks!
We also made Murakami inspired projects in honor of Mother’s Day. Take a look:
Using alginate and plaster to explore negative space, to see humor in art using body parts and learning an extreme amount of self control, students were challenged to create a hand gesture and hold it for up to 10 min. as the alginate mold was created.
Check out the results of the first part of this project:
Happy May Day! Summer will be here before you know it. Join CCA this year for June Art Adventures Summer Camp and experience contemporary art in a whole new way.
Our camps engage and inspire through exciting hands-on creative activities and material exploration! With this longer time spent, there is ample time to dive into learning and fun through art and the artists of NYC.
Monday-Thursday is at All Souls Church with daily easel painting + inspiring 2D & 3D larger scale art processes, free choice art stations, group murals and directed sketching time for older kids. They work on several pieces per day, with varying mediums. Fridays are at the Met.
Create food art inspired by Wayne Thiebaud and Claes Oldenburg at your next birthday party! Our recent birthday party at All Souls Church was so much fun, and the kids made fun and tasty-looking pop art food sculptures.
