ARTery Classes at the Market attracts droves, despite heat!

Despite the grueling heat on Sunday, we had an amazing turn out at our second round of Art Attack classes at the Cortelyou Market.  As you can see from the photos, our awesome teaching artists kept their students engrossed in making mosaic pots, origami pinwheels, books, mock-tails, animal balloons and masks.

Here’s the Mock-tail recipes:

Cucumber Cooler
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the pineapple chunks and juice with the Simple Syrup. Add the Cucumber Water and ice; shake well. Pour into a highball glass and top with club soda and cucumber slices.

Tuscan Fresco
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add 1 rosemary sprig and the peach nectar, white cranberry juice, lemon juice and Simple Syrup. Shake well and strain into an ice-filled rocks glass. Stir in the club soda and garnish with the remaining rosemary sprig.

Strawberry-Ginger Cooler
In a cocktail shaker, muddle the strawberry slices with the chopped ginger and Simple Syrup. Add ice and the orange and lime juice and shake well. Double strain into an ice-filled collins glass. Stir in the ginger beer and garnish with a strawberry half.

We also used the opportunity to survey the public about the kinds of classes they would like and find out what days and times work best for them and/or their kids.

Overall, the feedback is that this is a super great business idea!! Now we’re moving into action, organizing classes for adults and kids in pop-up locations around the neighborhood. Sign on to receive this blog so you can be the first to sign up for them.
