About a month ago, I stopped by Noble Coffee Roasters to enjoy their coffee and WiFi, and happily discovered their outdoor veranda. After I settled in, I looked up & to my right, and saw the words, "The Art Cottage," displayed on a glass door. I immediately stopped what I was doing and flocked to the storefront. Thoughts enveloped my mind of bringing my 8 & 3 year old daughters to art classes, while I waited next door productively relaxing. Ahhhhh. Genius! My enthusiasm was doubled by the fact that my daughter's, and my Alma Mater's, school budget didn't pass this year, leaving my 3rd-grader and hundreds of other children without art and music. The Art Cottage's classes, workshops, events were right on target. Visit their website at www.TheArtCottageNY.com and their Facebook page: The Art Cottage of New York .
