Brooklyn ARTery

The Brooklyn ARTery lands at the Cortelyou Farmer’s Market!

 Brooklyn had it’s first Art Attack…..

On Sunday, July 22nd, the Brooklyn ARTery launched our first in a series of pop-up classes at the Cortelyou Farmer’s Market to introduce ourselves to the neighborhood…..  And what a day we had! All day long people popped in to take part in printmaking, book-binding, cartooning, making animal balloons, mock-tails, origami and collaborating on a public art mosaic mural next to John’s Bakery.

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and to the amazing teachers who helped make our first Art Attack such a great addition to the market. We’ll be back on August 5th for another round! Keep an eye on our blog for the announcement of the next line up of classes or better still – sign up here to get a notification when we post them!

We are so pleased with the enthusiastic reaction we’ve received from everyone about the ARTery. One thing we noticed on Sunday was that it was mostly kids who took part in the activities. That was a real eye opener!  We were happy that the kids had such a good time. But we also want to know what times and classes would work for adults too. We’re designing it for our community so the more input we can get from you the better.

Tell us what kind of classes you’d like to take and if you or someone you know would like to teach at the ARTery. We have a short survey below and hope you’ll share your ideas with us to help make the Brooklyn ARTery an integral part of life in Ditmas! Thanks in advance for sparing the time to give us your input. And we hope to see you at the Cortelyou Market on Aug. 5th in front of the library for more classes and fun.
