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
and background, mid-ground and foreground to capture a more realistic landscape

Tres bien! Our results are worthy of a gallery display. Visit our GALLERY here!

We continue to prepare for this Fall and our Summer tours by taking a trip to the Guggenheim this weekend to see the current exhibit on Giacometti. (click for more info on the exhibition)!
While mostly known for his sculptures, Giacometti was also a prominent Painter AND Printmaker. Who knew! He experimented & created multiple prints starting with wood etching with his father, Giovanni Giacometti (well known Swiss Impressionist Painter) when he was still a schoolboy!
A super educational retrospective and must see before it closes on September 12th!
FUN GIACOMETTI FACT: Ever notice how shadows are long and thin? Many of Giacometti’s sculptures are actually from his observation of the shadow!
We highly recommend visiting. Can’t make it with the family? Leave it to us to give your little Art Adventurer a tour!
Don’t miss this fun and exciting exhibition full of art learning opportunities for your little artist! We are pumped to share our sculpture and drawing projects with you.
Take this Museum Trip with Us!
or Join us for our Fall classes where we take many of our project inspiration from our Museum exploration!
