Children’s art studio and event space with cafe. The Art Project’s proprietary “Art Free Play” program immerses children into a space of unimpeded artistic exploration, and processes the artistic creations into digital files that can be easily stored. Sweeping arrays of easels with supporting art materials either at hand or within a direct route facilitated targets of the program and created a theater for this activity, the “ScribbleSpace,” and gallery of cafe seating for parents with refreshment cafe. The space converts into a party venue popular for both birthday parties and adult gatherings, with full catering kitchen facilities and pneumatic table.

Different age groups can use the space simultaneously
