ARTLAB's new home : Eckford Street Studio
Located at 70 Eckford St (just off Driggs) -- Brooklyn, NY 11222
Summer Art Camp!
For artists entering grades K - 5
Spend this Summer in the studio! Each week of Art Camp is created around a big idea that is explored through drawing, painting, sculpture, collage and more! We have assembled a fantastic team of educators to nurture your child's creativity this summer. Each of our Teaching Artists has years of experience not just making art with children, but also helping them experience and appreciate art and develop their own voices and critical thinking skills. They have worked for some of the city's finest institutions, including the MoMA, Whitney and Guggenheim Museums, and also follow their own artistic pursuits.
Young artists work daily in their sketchbooks, lunch in the park, and take trips around the neighborhood to find sources of inspiration. Projects include collaborative and skill building activities, as well as ongoing projects and free art time.
In 2013 a new art space opened on the border of Greenpoint and Williamsburg, just a few blocks from McCarren Park. Eckford Street Studio is a place for the neighborhood's youngest generation of artists to connect to their community, explore art processes and materials, and discover their own ways of expressing themselves!
