We are quickly approaching our Spring Semester @ CCA! So for our last full week of January, we continue to let the Winter season inspire our Art Adventures- creating Snowscape Value paintings with our 5-7yo Art Adventures
Art Adventures Snowscape Value Painting

Our Mini’s Class Snowman Clay Sculptures
Whether it’s the weather, nature, found objects or other Artists….Anything can inspire Art Making! See MORE WINTER SNOW ART FUN HERE!

Getting into the holiday spirit with cookies, we used this age-old Swedish tradition of making specialty designs in clay as an indicator of what store, (or in this case, what child) the cookies came from! We first created a sphere with air-dry clay (found at craft & art stores), flattened it and added a coil handle with slip (water + clay.) After several days the clay was dry, then we brushed them with flour to press into a simple sugar cookie recipe and baked to show off our designs while making our holiday cards! Just roll the cookie dough into small balls, dust with flour and press! (Bake as instructed per recipe.)

From all of us here at Art Adventures, wishing everyone a very Happy Holiday and New Year! Keep making ART and see you next year!
Children and Adults learned to press textures from leaves and patterns to create bowls, trivets, plates and Holiday Ornaments! Underglazing with colors, they will be fired in a Kiln!
