New Art Studio Offers Black Friday 'Drop & Shop' & Art Activities

Looking for something fun and creative for your kids to do? Drop them off at The Arts & Nature School of Ridgefield​ for one of their many unique activities and events.

Kids ages 2+ up, as well as adults, are invited to unleash their inner artist at the studio's pop-in art sessions or dance off those extra Thanksgiving Day calories at their Black Light Glow Parties.  The studio's pop-up shop is also open with hand-made jewelry, hand-knit scarves and unique creations from local artists. Get your holiday shopping done while supporting local artists.

Try a class the week of Nov. 27 and get a preview of The Arts & Nature School's winter session of offerings in clay, 3-D sculpture, cartooning, graffiti arts, musical theater, knitting and more.
