When my daughter was younger we appreciated that all the studios were located in one factory building complex making it easy to access them with it's large elevators and wide corridors. More importantly there were always many friendly artists eager to share their knowledge and allow visitors to watch them working up close. Over the years the collective has added arts and crafts activities and an art theme game for children to try while on the tour. One of our favorite artists to visit is Librado Romero. He is always welcoming, and often invites kids to put some brush strokes on a canvas. What an thrill that is for them and memorable experience they come away with. Their creative ideas are validated and encouraged by a wise and talented artist.
The Metro North Commuter Rail Service provides easy access to Yonkers directly from Manhattan and Grand Central Station. There is free parking on the site and elevator access. There is live music scheduled and some refreshments served.
