In Art Adventures, children discussed the work of David Hockney and his interest in space, digital reproduction and representations of the real world.
Children used layering and parts to create a whole to make their own non-conventional photomontages which played with different points of perspective and explore representation.

CCA loves museum guards!

Museum Adventures loves the art museum guards!  On one of our recent visits to the Guggenheim Museum of Art, Museum Adventures kids and adults enjoyed the Picasso Black and White exhibit lead by Claire Munday.

“The guards are always interested in what we are doing, the projects we work on and they share such wonderful stories!  For example, it was a curious guard that told me a great story about Picasso while I was building the lesson plan.  He said that when Picasso would go to a restaurant, he would take the insides of the soft french bread and begin rolling and shaping it into sculpture while waiting for his food!  Having such busy hands and always having to be making art would certainly explain why Picasso has so many pieces.” ~ Claire
