ART STUDIO IN PARK SLOPE, BROOKLYN
Our Studio will be closed to the public on the following dates for private events:
- Saturday 3/17 4-6pm
237 5th Avenue Brooklyn, NY 11215 ~ Open 7 days a week from 10am-6pm ~ Drop-In Art!
At our Art Studio, you can get messy and create with your child. Build a papier mache sculpture, try our larger than life painting palette or make the stuffed animal of your child’s dreams!
Our Studio was designed with children and parents in mind, focused on creating a space where artists of all ages can create. The main crux of our Studio is drop-in flexibility. Students can come in seven days a week with no reservation, pick their project and start creating. We also carefully curated our projects to reflect a large variety of materials, methods and experiences, ranging from two dimensional watercolor painting explorations to three dimensional papier mache creations. All of our projects are process oriented, allowing students to explore the materials on their own without the restrictions of a product-focused activity. Open ended projects help children practice problem solving and learn to rely on their own intuition.
