It’s time to get messy, creative, and make some arts and crafts. Arts and crafts classes give kids the opportunity to develop some new skills and unleash their imagination. In this article, we introduce two new arts and crafts spots where kids can get creative in New York City.
The Craft Studio
174 Duane St.
Regulars and newcomers rejoice: The Craft Studio has a new spot in Tribeca. The studio was originally intended as a pop-up, it is now officially here to be a permanent addition to the Craft Studio family. The welcoming environment has made the studio a favorite in its original version, and it is really warming hearts in the new nabe.
The Tribeca spot is similar to the UES location such as Toddler Art and Little Hands, where the littlest artists can get down and dirty with some fun arts and crafts. Besides the usual classes, it also offers fun classes like The Coolest Art Craft Ever, introducing kids to edgy and fun new crafting techniques and materials, or Creative Movement and Art, combining jumping and active play with art-making.
Moreover, the Tribeca location is open for walk-ins almost every day and has a lot of options for tweens and teens who need a spot to hang out. It also offers private classes, birthday parties, and adult nights.
Midwood Arts & Crafts Studio
1701 Kings Highway
This Arts & Crafts Studio in Midwood has been around for a few years, but a recent increase of offerings is the added reason to check it out. The spacious and bright second-floor studio gives kids over four-years-old a fun and educational experience. Led by kind English- and Russian-speaking teachers, classes range from individual instruction to groups and allow kids to use their hands for everything, from pencils and paints to professionally modeling clay. All of these things are very great for the development of fine motor skill.
Midwood Arts & Crafts Studio has its plans to expand to more events, including adult classes and paint-n-sips, and artsy birthday parties for kids.
All events and classes are drop-offs, so you can leave your kids in the capable hands of the teachers to explore any of Kings Highway’s other offerings.
