My Papa took my brother and I camping when I was a child- we would carry our packs with all of our gear, food and water and we would hike through the canyon-lands in Utah. There’s nothing like falling asleep under the stars and waking up with the sun- cooking all of your food over a fire, swimming in a river, and being surrounded by the great outdoors.
Here at LDBA, we started a little thing called “Farm Camp” 3 years ago, with that same desire to pack up, be in nature and camp out. LDBA and Mark and Bettina Firth came together and now, every summer, we head to the Berkshires with tents, art supplies, songs, and an amazing group of (mostly) Brooklyn kids, artists, and councilors. Last year we cut down 14 maple and birch saplings, peeled the bark off, and set up our first LDBA tipi as part of our idyllic camp surroundings. we swam in lakes and secret swimming holes, visited farms, ate like kings- we had incredible chefs and several delightful artists, volunteers and councilors- plus Jessa Blades, our camp herbalist! Please join us this year for more fun at the farm!
Farm Camp 2015 is happening July 20-25. Spaces are limited, reserve your spot here!

Happy February, Folks! At LDBA we are cozy and tucked in for this lovely month full of snow, inspiration and introspection. As you may know, we are working on 2 spaces for LDBA! We are opening a studio at the gorgeous Williamsburg Library through the fantastic non-profit called SPACEWORKS (more info to come), and the other is our very own brick and mortar store/educational space opening on Driggs Street in Williamsburg (projected to open in SPRING 2015).  We are crossing our fingers for all the permits to go through in this crazy Brooklyn Building Boom, and meanwhile we are revisiting our plans, course work, and supplies. We are looking for our artistic team as well, so if you or someone you love would be a good fit to join LDBA, please contact us! Just click the email address at the top of the page.  (This is our preliminary call to arms, a more official one coming soon).
In other cool news, pre-enrollment for our (by now), LEGENDARY Farm Camp, 2015 is open HERE. Save your kiddo’s spot now for this incredible camp.
