OKABALOO #FunArtFaktory - The Arts & Fun Gallery is an inspiring arts space in Astoria, Queens for NYC kids to explore their innate creativity, develop new skills, create lasting friendships, boost self-confidence, and above all, have fun! With a bright, carefully-designed spacious studio, Okabaloo provides tons of unique, enriching kids classes and activities (in art, reading and storytelling, movement and more), an incredible after-school recreational program, summer camp, school days-off camp, monthly kids events, parents date-nights, open art play, and fantastic kids birthday parties. Okabaloo also hosts many networking and community events, and also offers space rental for private events. Though they focus on children, there is truly something for everyone at Okabaloo.
We believe in the power and impact that young families and children have in shaping our world. Positive recreational and extracurricular activities outside of school and work can build a stronger, happier society, generation after generation. These beliefs drive our passion to spark a love of the arts and to help make creativity a lifelong habit for healthy, fulfilling lives. Our greatest mission is to bring to our community and beyond a place where everyone feels inspired to do better, be better, and pass it along.
