Art Adventures

Claire's Creative Adventures

Kidz Tips
  • French Included upon request

Children are introduced to famous as well as contemporary artists and multiculturalism using a wide variety of media and techniques including: Paint, clay, plaster, wood, pencil, sand, paper-mache, wire, fabric, found objects and more. The myriad of museums and galleries in NYC provide us with ample ideas from which to create, keeping our curriculum current with the art world of today. Children go on a trip to a NYC museum or gallery each semester.  French may be added to any class.

In order to instill trust and confidence, Art Adventures encourages decision-making, as well as trial and error, allowing children the freedom to explore at their own pace. Special attention is placed on designing the curriculum so that lessons serve as building blocks to the next and new process. Once they have built an “art vocabulary” from a previous class, they continue using it to make masterpieces the next! Because each group’s social development is also important, children are encouraged to practice interpersonal skills hand-in-hand with learning an art vocabulary. Sketchbooks are kept in class to reinforce topics and to record development throughout the year.  Claire's original group murals open each class for collaborative play and team trust building.
