In the event PUBLIC SCHOOLS are closed due to extreme weather conditions, we will also cancel class. If public schools are open, we will be open and class will be in session.

Dear families, with great sadness, this will be my last full school year (2017-2018) of Brooklyn Design Lab. I have loved all the great years with you guys! I don't know the future of the studio as I finish up my 10 year lease (March 31, 2019). I will keep everyone informed on the website and the mailing list. Until then, we shall make lots of art!

New for the 2017-2018 school year: drop-off classes for PreK--Kindergarten on Mondays!

Check out our 2018 Summer Lab Art Camp! Our last summer!

10 of This Summer's Most Fun Day Camps Around New York Welcome to Brooklyn Design Lab!

Brooklyn Design Lab offers design and art classes in a studio environment for early childhood (ages 18m-4) and grade school (grades K-6) students. All of our classes are hands-on, process-driven and focused. Students of all ages explore a set of materials, a theme, or an area of study in depth. Class sizes are strictly limited so that students can get the most out of each course, the time spent with their teachers, and their fellow students. BDL values process over product and the fun of creating over all.

Brooklyn Design Lab is located steps from many Park Slope schools in a storefront studio diagonally across from 7th Avenue Union Market.

Classes run throughout the year and are held during the day, after-school, and in the summer.

Our window showcases a selection of student work in rotating mini-exhibitions for the neighborhood to enjoy. We are dedicated to bringing art and design to our children and our community.

Please join our mailing list for BDL updates and news.

We are very excited to get to work!
