ART360 / FORT GREENE: The Art of Play, is coming to Fowler Square, on Saturday, May 18! We’re planning a fun day of art, music, and even a little sports at this year’s event, so you don’t wanna miss it!

We invite you to embark on a journey of imagination, exploration, sport, and sheer joy as we delve into the heart of what it means to truly embrace the art of play.

Throughout the day, our event will be brimming with hands-on activities designed to ignite the spark of inspiration. People of all ages are invited to unleash their inner artists, musicians, and athletes! Work with glass beads (Urban Glass), learn table tennis tricks (PingPod), make music with found objects (Brooklyn Music School), try creative embroidery (TATTER), engage in an aromatherapy workshop (The Hort), and more!
