Albany Art Room Gift Certificates

CC.jpg

Gift certificates to the Albany Art Room AND permission to get dirty? Yay!!!

What?

Gift Certificates to the Albany Art Room. Think about it-- the kids are going to be off for a whole week, it's cold out, and the the time it takes to go from infatuation with new toys to stir crazy is shorter than you think. A few hours at the Albany Art Room could be a lot of fun for kids and a great break for parents.

Who?
Anyone with kids. They'll have a blast. It's also a good idea for grown up types who like to play with arts and crafts. They have classes and adult only studio nights where you can do anything from drawing and sculpting, to painting and decorating furniture.

How much?
Studio time at the art room is $5 an hour - so $20 bucks can buy a whole afternoon of fun.

Where?
You can get gift certificates at The Albany Art room, 457 Madison Avenue Albany

In addition to art and craft supplies, they've got some fun locally made gifts like kids clothing by Potato Playground, handmade pillows and baby hats. Or you could pick up some handmade greeting cards by 9 year old Mary Mc Colgan (Keep one for yourself--you never know what it will be worth one day.)

Another great kid hangout, The Children's Museum at Saratoga, also offers gift certificates and memberships.

A slightly older child (or crafty adult) might like a gift certificate to Bumble Beads in Latham. It's not just a bead shop, but a bead studio, where they'll help you pick out the beads and then create a piece of jewelry. They do parties too.

When I used to bus-commute in another city, there was a similar smart card system and it was AWESOME. On/Off time was significantly decreased, so buses were even a little more timely. I hope this pilot goes smoothly because the faster this gets implemented, the better for bus riders. This is good news!
