ABOUT THOSE ART KIDS:
Those Art Kids (TAK) is a free-spirited, multi-media art exploration for toddlers and preschoolers that introduces budding young artists to the art world’s masters. TAK classes enable children to express themselves uniquely, improve fine motor skills, learn about different cultures and explore the environment and the world around them. TAK has been acknowledged by both the Keith Haring and the Romare Bearden foundations in NYC.
At our music studio, our students love creating music-inspired art by drawing with crayons while listening to live classical music. We picked 3 of our favorite classical pieces for you to share with your children. Creating music-inspired art is easy! First, give your children a simple introduction to the music- the title, the composer, and more talking points depending upon age. Then, ask them to listen to the music and draw what they feel. You can start with a blank sheet of paper or print out the coloring sheets below. Paper-free option: save the images to your iPad or any other tablet and “paint” in a drawing app!
1. Flight of the Bumblebee Rimsky-Korsakov
Flight of the Bumblebee is an interlude from the opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. Rimsky-Korsakov was a famous Russian composer who wrote the piece in 1899-1900. In the opera, a magic swan-bird transforms the Prince into a bumblebee so that he fly to visit his father, who does not know that his son is still alive! This piece of music is very fast! For this one, you may want to ask your children to first watch the short video and then listen a second time while attempting to color in the bumblebee before the music finishes! Simple talking points/questions for young children: What colors are bumblebees? What sound do they make? How do they move? Have you ever seen one? Where?
When we came across this free app for children ages 2-6, we fell in love with it immediately.
Art Maker reminds us of the sticker books we had as children. We both loved decorating scenes with sparkly, fuzzy, and scratch-n-sniff stickers! This app provides the same feel but with lots of modern updates.
We added a new page to our site! Our NYC Parenting Workshops page lists the upcoming parenting workshops held at our studio. All the workshops we host allow you to get great advice from knowledgable professionals while meeting and talking with other parents in an intimate setting.

In New York City, there are countless classes developed for young children. Parents are faced with choosing from the wide variety that the city has to offer- music, art, gym, swimming, language, dance, science, yoga, theatre, cooking, sign language, and more! How do you decide what classes to take?
The best way to start is by taking a trial class or a drop-in class to see your child’s response to each program. If a trial or drop-in isn’t available, stop by the location to see the space in person and meet the staff before signing up!
