LDBA After School Arts Program
Fall/Winter 2017
September 11- February 2
Mondays and Wednesdays

L’Ecole Des Beaux Arts offers artistic and skill-based classes taught by artists and educators in the neighborhood and from around the world.
Classes and workshops are carefully selected, organized monthly, and kept small for an optimal learning environment.
Our After School Arts Program (ASAP) focuses on fine art and hands on education for children. The materials used in classes are non toxic and natural, avoiding plastic and disposable materials. We teach respect of our materials, ourselves and each other. Our reference materials come from books and editorials, avoiding use of screens in class.
We explore artists’ work from galleries, museums and studios, and create projects based on what we learn.Using NYC as our inspiration, we explore artists’ work from galleries, museums, and studios, and create projects based on what we learn. We look at famous, unknown, local and global artists who inspire us to be creative and expand our minds. We offer pick ups from PS 84 and Brooklyn Arbor schools.

Spring Wild Edible Walk + Tasting + Water color workshop

Leap into spring and join our first foraging walk followed by a tasting of the natural edible bounty and tea pairing by Tay Tea.

In collaboration with the Boy Scouts of America, we will walk their pristinely protected land in Tusten, NY along the Delaware River. Nathaniel Whitmore, local naturalist/herbalist/alchemist, and TaraMarie Perri, founder/director of Perri Institute for Mind and Body, will be our guides. Each step along the way will be illuminated by the senses as we dive deeper into nature.

The post-walk tasting and tea will be hosted at Smokey Belles Catskills Le Petite Cabine in Narrowsburg, NY.  We will gather at the charming and rustic woodland retreat overlooking a trout stream and learn how to clean, taste, and process our seasonal field foraging.

Artist Sara Moffat of LDBA Brooklyn will provide artist’s field supplies and share the naturalist’s way to document, draw, and watercolor the botanicals we find.

Takeaway: take home your foraged bounty, your own original botanicals watercolors, and Fish & Bicycle field notebook (5”x3.5”) filled out with your observations to inspire future walks.

RSVP: Space and supplies are limited!

  • Details will be provided via the confirmation of reservation email (i.e. what to wear, what to bring, etc.)
  • Exact start location will be revealed few days prior to the walk.
