In the midst of winter, I know it may seem crazy but the time is NOW to start planning your child's summer!! You can find tons of options in our 2017 Summer Camps in and around Bay Ridge (not yet updated from last year, but it's a great place to start), and keep reading because we're thrilled to introduce you to one very unique option for kids in NYC interested in art and design!
Textile Arts Center Summer Camp's weeklong programs for children ages 5-13 in Brooklyn and Manhattan include topics such as printing, felting, sewing, weaving, and dyeing, with daily free play, playground visits, and field trips to museums, shows and exhibitions. Students learn, play, and proudly bring home a finished project each week.
What's more? Through teaching about and having children create various types of textile products, these classes foster an appreciation of makers and an understanding of our ecological impact, and empower students to become the makers and innovators of tomorrow.
