The Bee's Knees Art Studio & Party Place
The buffet at The Bee's Knees Art Studio isn't your standard buffet: it features glitter, paint, ribbons, beads, modeling clay, and a bunch of other things with very little nutritional value. Of course, they aren't there to eat, but to use to create art during visits. The studio gives artists of all ages the chance to do just that by opening its doors for parties, open-studio sessions, and weekly lessons where instructors teach students about different artists and their techniques. Bee's Knees also keeps an ideas book handy, which students can flip through for inspiration instead of just examining strangers' tattoos on the walk over.
