BROWSE ALL FALL 2019 CLASSES NOW

We boast confident, happy & excited children leaving our studio after each class.

What can your child develop?

Parents are often skeptical to over-schedule their children in the fall.  School teachers warn parents to keep extra classes to a minimum during transitions.

We find, however, that CCA’s art classes are an exception. Why?

Because they are child-directed. They focus on exploration, as well as whatever is going on that day with each student, and acts as a supportive therapy in their schedule versus an extra “activity.”

Our studio is a place where children can rest from their busy schedules, receive individualized attention and to express themselves with or without words.

UpcomingOpen/ Art Adventures Studio / Thursdays 4:30-6pm


 

(1 hour, 30 min.) (Min. 4/ Max 12)

Students are introduced to modern and contemporary artists using a wide variety of media and techniques including: paint, specialty pencils, pastels, charcoal, blending tools, clay, wood, plaster, wire, fabric, stop-motion animation and more.  Students also learn techniques to recreate what they see through live model drawing (clothed) and still life.  There will be a focus on portfolio building for older students.  Please visit the Art Adventures page for more information.

Myriad museums and galleries of NYC provide us with ample ideas from which to create, keeping our curriculum current with the art world of today.

Upcoming2–3 years / Mini-Art Adventures / Wednesdays 10:15-11am


(45 min.) Age group: 2–4 years with Adult. (Min. 3/ Max 6)

The Curriculum is responsive to the developmental needs of each age group, carefully tailored and ever changing to suit the children’s interests.  Instead of rushing  children through activities, they are given ample opportunity to be active collaborators in the design of their class. Using a wide range of interesting art materials such as clay, wire, eyedroppers, diverse painting tools and techniques (to name a few) children explore, identify and reinforce language, colors, shapes, numbers while practicing motor skills and appropriate art language in a fun and nurturing environment. Adults engage in this class while learning techniques to foster the joy of learning art as well as age appopriate art language.  Each class begins with our unique group “sticky mural” decoration, with thematic items changing each week. Song and storytelling are included in this comprehensive class.  Through all of our activities, our goal is to promote confidence through choice-making as well as the freedom of self-expression while applauding and encouraging each stage of development.

Class size is limited to 12 participants/ 6 children.
