Happy Passover w. Elijah’s or Miriam’s Cup

While Elijah’s Cup is the 5th untouched cup of wine,  Miriam’s Cup is for water from each guest’s cup to celebrate the crossing of the Sea of Reeds.  It was said that Moses’ sister lead the women in dance and song with tambourines when they safely reached the other side.

Elijah's cupIn the spirit of Passover and the Seder meal, Children designed their own versions of Elijah’s or Miriam’s Cup exploring the art of Decoupage (A French word using the process of a glue mixture over papers and tissues.)  To cut, in French, is “Couper” explaining the cutting of the papers before applying them.

Then we decorated freely with jewels to make the special cups stand out at any Seder Meal!

Other versions may include Sculpey or glass paints.

In our Venice Mini-Set Building Parent-Child Workshop Saturday, students learned exactly that.  Artist Cliff Gokenbach showed us how…

Check out the slideshow below, to see how it was done. Some students are already working on their next city dioramas at home!

And a great big THANK YOU to Cliff!

CCA inspires!

The artist known to the world only as CS is a young but proficient painter. With training and inspiration from Claire Munday, his talents have grown significantly this summer. While usually known for his portraits of his family in CT, CS recently decided to build his street cred by using the techniques of Jackson Pollock as he experienced at the LIC Flea & Food Festival.

This most recent work is on its way to Park Avenue in Manhattan for display in an executive office.
