$10 for an Art Explorers Drop-In Class ($20 Value)
On Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., children aged 18 months to 4 years investigate their creative side with help from their parents by creating paintings, collages, and prints inspired by nature and the changing seasons. Three art stations contain fun materials such as vintage fabrics, patterned papers, and play-dough-making supplies.
The Painted Cloud
The big people inside The Painted Cloud are painters, woodcarvers, jewelry artists, and photographers, each with fine-arts degrees and a slew of exhibition credits to their names. They’re also consummate play-dough sculptors, ice-cube painters, pipe-cleaner twisters, and paper-mask makers. In a sunny Williamsburg studio embraced by dark-wood floors and a pressed-tin ceiling high enough for even the most expansive thought bubbles, they welcome children as young as 18 months for explorations of paint, cloth, clay, and plenty of other imagination-stoking materials. Art sessions always leave room for students to work at their own paces and choose subjects that appeal to them, helping build confidence that carries over to every aspect of a child’s life.
