Inspirations for Fall

Art classes inspire and give new meaning to life!

We are able to express joy and pain about life experiences and events through artwork. For example, Autumn de Forest, 13 years old, “created a painting commemorating the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings” which she showcased at the Park West Gallery VIP Event at the Ritz-Carlton in Boston in 2005. She took the dark and painful event of the Boston Bombing and created a piece to remember those lost.  She started painting when she was five years old and since has created beautiful masterpieces inspired by Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein.

Blast from the Past:

CCA ‘s repeat attendance enabled us to search for brand new art to teach each year. In January 2011, we explored exciting ways that regular old paper can be transformed into fantastic art. We studied a variety of artists and their techniques including: Mia Pearlman, Andrea Dezsö and Betrice Coron. Here you see the first stage of our cut paper mobiles project inspired by Mia Pearlman. Students each made at least two drawings with one featuring curvy shapes and one with angle shapes. The next step was to cut out some of the shapes created. Choosing which shapes to cut out, which to leave and just how much negative space to keep around the shapes were important decisions each student had to make about their artwork.The next phase included assembling the pieces into a paper mobile. Here are some end results!

DRAWING Camp resumes this Monday!
