Kids ages 6 months to 4 years and their grown ups work together in the ARTLAB to create masterpieces inspired by the world around them. ARTLAB is a place for young artists to explore and discover their visual world, and experiment with their own creative powers. Our classes are carefully structured to create an open-ended and child-centered experience, where your little artist interprets and engages every activity in his or her own way.
Family Open Studio at Park Church Co-op
One special Saturday each month, we open the studio doors for a family art workshop to support ESS, Park Church Co-op, and our community!
FOS at PCC takes place on selected Saturdays from 10am-12:30pm. Families with artist ages 2-5 years sign up for a 45 minute time slot to play art together, with the guidance of ESS staff. Families pay a sliding scale of $10-40, and all proceeds are split evenly between Eckford Street Studio and Park Church Co-op, two neighborhood non-profits committed to supporting creative practice in their North Brooklyn community!
Space is limited, due to COVID safety precautions. Masks are required of all participants.
At our first FOS at Park Church Co-op, we will be revisiting a favorite ARTLAB project - splashy fabric paintings!
We'll use white tempera and liquid watercolor to shake and splatter our own drippy masterpieces onto pieces of fabric. There will be cornstarch goop to play with, and bottles and droppers full of colored ink to splash around. It will be a messy one, so bring your art making clothes!
NEXT CLASS: SATURDAY, JUNE 12
Regular ARTLAB programming is paused during the coronavirus pandemic.
Watch this space for 2021 updates!
For artists ages 2.5 to 4 and their adult collaborators.
Each week, we read a story or investigate work by a well-known artist, and explore what we find through drawing, painting, sculpture, or collage. Young artists develop observation and fine motor skills, grown-ups get tips for experiencing art with their kids, and everyone shares their creations at the end of class.
Have an older two year old? Choose this level when your little artist enjoys examining pictures, becomes more verbal, and begins to develop an interest in imaginative play. Or, see ARTLAB Junior!
For artists ages 15 months to 2.75 years and their adult collaborators.
