Visiting Artist, Jonathan Lev on Art Adventures Live + Springtime Exploration of Flowers

April Showers are in full swing during this last week’s online (3-5’s) classes. Art Adventures, Rendez-vous (art and French) and Mini’s Adventures celebrated May flowers early with our Spring Scene-Building collages! We learned all about making “Pictures” with Shapes (first) followed by the line families (“Bigger first, Smaller last”) bringing life to our silhouetted animals with “inside lines,” while providing stems to our garden of tulips.

 

Older students in our Studio Adventures took a virtual tour with guest artist, Jonathan Lev !

We were so excited to join Jonathan in his grand studio where he shared some of his work, favorite art materials and even a sneak peek into his current larger-than-life-sized astronaut portrait! As a talented charcoal portraitist (located in LIC) he also gave us inside techniques in using charcoal, pencils and erasers when drawing with values to build 3D objects in our very own “Cezanne” still life.  (A free “how-to” video will soon be made available.)


Thank you, Jonathan!  Check out more of his inspiring work HERE!

 

 

Stop-Motion Animation At Art Adventures June Camp

Inspired by William Kentridge (click link for more on the artist) and his charcoal stop-motion animations during our week 1 of June Art Camp…we created our own! Working in teams, our 8-9 year old campers created Charcoal Drawing animations while our 5-6 year old campers created Dry Erase Marker Drawing animations.  These teams created new friendships through their daunting collaborations!
