We hopped on a plane, flew to San Francisco, hopped in a car and set up a bows and arrows class for Nic’s 6th Birthday! We made targets in the back yard with Nic  and his brother, Zac, before all of the other kiddos arrived. We had so much fun, we forgot to snap more pictures! For our next BOWS AND ARROWS class at LDBA, sign up HERE.

Our inaugural Free Art Fridays class was too fun! 12 kiddos signed up and attended our first free art class on Friday, May 8th at the Williamsburgh Public Library. Bradley was our teacher and showed us how to make Aboriginal Dot Paintings using stencils and Q-Tips, and we finished class with colored pencil drawings on black paper.

LDBA was asked be a part of an exciting new website launch, called MiniMode, that took place at the Library Room in the SOHO House NYC. We made tissue paper banners, we hand painted a custom Step-and-Repeat- (that thing you stand in front of for photos)- took polaroids, and set up a do-it-yourself CROWN station! High fashion kids and parents lined up to make crowns, take pictures and run around like little royalty. It was a Saturday well spent and we were quite happy to be a part of it! For those of you who have a 10% discount card (included in your gift bag)- you can sign up to any class  and receive a 10% discount with the code MINIMODE.

In other news, there are still spaces available in LDBA/NYC Day Camp- SIGN UP HERE.   We will do all of the above activities, plus so much more.

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!
