Arty Parties
Singled out by New York Magazine and Time Out New York, HI ART! ARTY PARTIES are unique fun, flexible, special, charming, educational and unlike any of those other birthday parties your child has been to. Each party puts a bit of us together with a bit you, as we work together to plan the artistic party of your child's dreams. Build a candy sculpture, paint like the Fauves, plan a pretend pajama party, sculpt a galaxy or improvise to live music. Anything is possible in our extraordinary light-filled 2,500 sq. ft. studio and gallery.

Call for more information about Arty Parties! 917-318-9499.


What Parents Say:
"I just wanted to thank you and your very capable staff for putting on a really fun and successful party for Luke yesterday. The space was, welcoming and intriguing, the staff was attentive and helpful and the project drew in every child. Certain kids who I thought might be skeptical of the whole enterprise surprised me by getting right down to work and being absolutely engrossed in what they were doing. They made everything from Times Square to a tsunami (!) in candy. And the parents, most of whom stuck around, thought it was pretty cool, too."  -Luke’s Mom


Never Enough Halloween? It's the Annual Candy Monster Sculpture Fest!

Saturday, November 2nd from 3:30-5:00pm in our gorgeous, light-filled studio at 227 West 29th St.

Kids 3-D it with masses of candy at HiArt!'s Eighth Annual Candy Monster SculptureFest!

Ask us and we'll tell you: There's never enough Halloween. So kids can join us POST-Halloween to keep the fun coming.

Create a candy monster, fantastical candy world, candy painting or whatever your kid's sweet heart desires. And for parents who are sick of Halloween - just bring your left-over candy along -- your child can combine it with our 20 feet of candy and put it to artistically beeeeutiful use. Even sweeter: a portion of all proceeds will be donated to The Time In Children's Arts Initiative!

Kidsketch Book Club

Check out Cyndie’s 4 fabulous new books for Scholastic’s Kidsketch Book Club.  The series begins this October with Cartoon How-To – an incredibly lively, technique packed (and intelligent) guide to cartooning.  In November you’ll receive HiArt!’s Manga and Comics book — illustrated by the amazingly talented Hyeondo Park, who will be teaching at HiArt! beginning with a manga workshop this winter break!  Cyndie also wrote book 4 — Flip Animation  - and Book 5 on realistic drawing.

The books, although written for second and third graders — are fun to read and, like all HiArt! Programs, will grow with your kids, whether they’re just seven or going on 15. Live, learn and enjoy!
