Our finale to les Printemps 2019 was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art! We took one last art adventure exploring Modern, Contemporary & Fashion Art!
It was an exciting and fun filled week of Museum Tours with Our Studio & Art Adventurers last week. Each class and age group explored a different wing at The Metropolitan Museum of Art learning about art from here and around the world through MAKING ART. Check out our Studio class tour as we walked through the newest exhibits:

We’re taking our Art Adventure, Studio, and Mini’s classes to the Met this week! Its all about exploring all the different art movements, forms, processes and cultures that the museum has to offer while creating fun and exciting art projects ….in front of famous ART!
This adventure brings us to a few spots @ The Met:
The art of Africa with our 5-7 year old classes, which also coincides with our in-class project inspired by the Adire Eleko textile Art of Yorubaland!
The Modern Wing with our 2-4 year olds classes, exploring color, shape, and line!
and some new exhibits just opened with our older Studio class!
We can’t wait to see what our Art Adventurers create at The Met! Stay tuned.
In the meantime, see some past Museum Tours with CCA HERE!
Thank you again to our visiting artist, Jaye Collins for showing our Art Adventures Studio all about this style and drawing techniques!
Children’s art tours with Museum Adventures @ the Metropolitan Museum of Art inspire everyone around them, making them look further into the pieces we do! The children were drawn to a Cy Twombly and took it upon themselves to go to find the hidden marks and letters for which he is known. Excited to see our Cy Twombly activity mural in Art Adventures provide the stimulation and connection!

There is a lot of feedback on how to do this, but the best way that takes the least time is to hire a professional! Armed with more than pencil and paper, CCA tours engage and enlighten with myriad materials…. And show how to do it on your own. For more info on taking your little one: http://arts.gov/art-works/2014/preparing-children-art-museums
CCA tip: Make it a Child-Directed trip- Ask these questions about each piece they are drawn to:
What materials is it made from?
How do you think they did it?
Guess what the artist was thinking when they made it?
What do you like?
What do you not like?
How would you make your own version?
If you’re nervous about bringing more than a pencil & paper, make a list of what your child needs to make their own version, go together to get the supplies and follow it up at home.
Imagine how excited they will get about art. And the interest they will have on their next visit!
We were lucky enough to watch this incredibly detailed process on and Art Adventures summer camp tour, by happy accident. I’ve attached a link to the process if you are not familiar with his work, his instructions or his new Wall Drawing #370 at the Met!
We were there on days 10-14, when they were “inking” in the black. The crew walked us through the process, showed us their materials, the written instructions (this was cool) and were fabulous with the kids and their questions! (and ours:)
