New York City is an amazing resource for modern and contemporary art! As a fine artist, as well as an art teacher of children for 15 years, I have found the question, “What is Art?” a never-ending one. Hence my goal- to demystify artists and their processes in language children can understand and adults can use. Art-making is full of choices, which builds a stronger child having made them. I founded Claire’s Creative Adventures over 12 years ago to explore the processes of artists which children may encounter in museums, galleries, or on a walk and to have the tools to decipher and imagine what the artists are thinking. Developing these critical thinking skills and imagination is paramount to a well-rounded child who may approach all of their endeavors with such joy and confidence as they do art!
Becoming a learner with your child can be a stimulating experience! In these workshops and tours, adults learn age-appropriate art language and directed questions as well as techniques artists use to create.

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!
(We love it when parents become learners with their children:) Way to go Mariella!
And a great big THANK YOU to Cliff!

Jack’s fascination with transportation left his parents in a difficult situation. Are front-loaders sold at costume shops? WW1 fighter planes?
My mother used to sew our costumes, but who does that anymore? Well, you don’t necessarily have to… These creative parents decided to BUILD them. Cardboard is easily found, but as Jack’s parents concluded, making correct armholes so that Jack could maneuver his candy-gathering was of utmost importance.
Way to go Jack for being relentless in your costume dreams! … and he’s only 6! Perhaps the fact that Jack’s dad worked for the MTA had something to do with it?
By the way, these costumes even articulate! I’m so excited to see this year’s costume: The Intrepid!

We are so excited to have professional scenic artist Cliff Gokenbach teach us the secrets of how artists create for the movies. He can’t tell us about the new Spiderman he’s working on, but he can help us make any imaginary set we can dream of! Here, he’s gone to Venice…
