Haven’t Heard about Art Adventures?

Our programs have nurtured and challenged thousands of children on the UES over the past 20+ years.
We know there are a lot of activities for your children and want to make Art Adventures on the top of their list!

CCA classes have a 3:1 teacher-student ratio, myriad material exploration, optional French, as well as lunch & art + after-school programs for Ages 2-14.

Upcoming2–3 years / Mini-Art Adventures / Wednesdays 11:45-12:30pm


(45 min.) Age group: 2–3 years with Adult. (Min. 3/ Max 6)

The Curriculum is responsive to the developmental needs of each age group, carefully tailored and ever changing to suit the children’s interests.  Instead of rushing  children through activities, they are given ample opportunity to be active collaborators in the design of their class. Using a wide range of interesting art materials such as clay, wire, eyedroppers, diverse painting tools and techniques (to name a few) children explore, identify and reinforce language, colors, shapes, numbers while practicing motor skills and appropriate art language in a fun and nurturing environment. Adults engage in this class while learning techniques to foster the joy of learning art as well as age appopriate art language.  Each class begins with our unique group “sticky mural” decoration, with thematic items changing each week. Song and storytelling are included in this comprehensive class.  Through all of our activities, our goal is to promote confidence through choice-making as well as the freedom of self-expression while applauding and encouraging each stage of development.

Class size is limited to 12 participants/ 6 children.

Students are introduced to modern and contemporary artists using a wide variety of media and techniques including: paint, specialty pencils, pastels, charcoal, blending tools, clay, wood, plaster, wire, fabric, stop-motion animation and more.  Students also learn techniques to recreate what they see through live model drawing (clothed) and still life.  There will be a focus on portfolio building for older students.  Please visit the Art Adventures page for more information.

Myriad museums and galleries of NYC provide us with ample ideas from which to create, keeping our curriculum current with the art world of today. Students take 2 trips to U.E.S. galleries and Museums during the semester to be inspired in their own processes.  Visiting contemporary artists also share their techniques in this class.  Sketchbooks are kept in class to reinforce topics and to record development throughout the year.
