Here’s what parents are saying about Museum Adventures:
“Your tours offer what many parents want to give to their kids and may not know exactly how.”
“You do a great job introducing sophisticated material to the kids– without dumbing it down nor having it go over their heads. That’s a tricky balance and you do it well!”
“Claire is amazing and really knows her stuff when it comes to art theory and art history. You can tell she really loves working with kids and loves art.”
Contact us to join one of our upcoming tours and see why we’re the best art program in the city!
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.

Wow! Grimanesa Amoros: Beauty, Bubbles, Light, Lines & Fun!
On my always engaging tour today with Riva Blumenfeld of http://www.blumenfeldfineart.com/.
Mrs. Amoros took the time to take us on a journey through bubble islands, lines of lights and even into Times Square’s installation for the Armory show (Did you see it?)
These pieces made me feel extra serene, relaxed and even tickled somehow!
Now I’m working on a kid-friendy version- So watch our Art Adventures, here comes more fun!

Students were inspired by Basquiat’s loose, free- style improvisational paintings to paint with repetition of lines and shapes as well as using words and symbols. A friend of Andy Warhol, Basquiat was different from graffiti artists because his words had a higher meaning than just a name on the side of a building. He described his work, “I cross out words so you will see them more; the fact that they are obscured makes you want to read them.”
