Outdoor Art Adventures to take this SUMMER

We can’t get enough of this Summer Sunshine! That just means time for more en plein air art. But where to start?
1. Choose your medium. Pencil? Pastels? Watercolor?
2. Pick your favorite outdoor spot (don’t forget water & sunscreen!).
3. And CREATE SOME ART

SPRING HAS SPRUNG FOR ART IN THE PARK

What a beautiful week to make art in the park…Central Park! We made like an Impressionist and went en plein air for our 6-9’s Art Adventures.

Our challenge: to paint a landscape outside using a combination of 3 materials- pencil, craypas AND watercolor.

We practiced some tree drawing techniques: the Y technique- drawing branches in the shape of Y’s!

We learned different techniques in watercolor & wax resist with craypas

The Winter Snow was our theme this week for Art Adventures: From Salt dough Snow Mama & her babies (with our 2-5 year old classes) to Winter Wonderland Salt Watercolor Landscape exploration (our 8-11 year old class)! It was a fun snow art day for all ages.
