Claire's Creative Adventures

Kidz Tips
  • No experience necessary
  • Challenges skilled artists
  • See CCA Gallery for Claire's talents

Children are introduced to modern and contemporary artists as well as diverse cultures using a wide variety of media and techniques including: paint, pencils, pastels, clay, wood, plaster, wire, fabric, photography, stop-motion animation, glass paints and MORE. 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.  Children learn techniques to recreate what they see through live model drawing (clothed) and still life.  Children 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 our classes.   

This studio class is a place for students to use the artistic process as a means to make choices to express who they are as individuals. They learn to overcome obstacles and to approach creative thinking in an ever-expanding way, promoting self-esteem and sense of courage when encountering new experiences. Outside of new materials, cultures and advanced mediums, students learn to appreciate their classmates’ varying styles and differences in approach, discovering that there is no one solution to an artistic problem, there are many. No experience necessary, skilled artists welcome!

Sketchbooks are kept in class to reinforce topics and to record development throughout the year.
