  • For over a decade, Kids at Art has provided the perfect environment for nurturing, non-competitive art programs where children can learn and create freely. Our age-appropriate art classes for kids 2 – 12 years old focus on the basics of visual arts and are a challenge to a child’s inventiveness, helping to develop his or her imagination. We offer a varied arts program, including creative art classes, fashion design & sewing classes, drawing from the model, and more. At Kids at Art, class size is limited so everyone receives individual attention.

    We also host the most creative and fun birthday parties in town! In addition to the wide variety of art projects available, we offer karaoke and disco parties hosted by a fabulous DJ!

    And if you’re no longer a kid, we’re now offering great classes for older artists as well! From a portfolio class for teens to art classes and life drawing sessions for adults of all ages, Kids at Art has something for everyone!

      Sindi started knitting as a teenager so she could make baby blankets for her six nieces and nephews. She then found the love of crocheting as a young adult so she could make handbags and baskets for her friends and family. As a Zumba Kids® instructor, she decided to combine her love of teaching kids with crochet to teach this amazing craft to children of all ages. She’s been teaching at public and private schools in Manhattan and is now bringing this class to Kids at Art.
