I was very disappointed in this activity since I have heard amazing things about the BCA center in general. I went with my 1 year old and 2 year old expecting some great art activities. There was only play doh, some paints, and some crayons. Since we do this stuff all the time at home, it was no big deal to them and they grew bored after 20 minutes (and after paying 12$ to attend). Also, there is no direction or participation from the staff....more

Great time ! We were visiting the area were looking for something fun to do with our two yr old. The parents must supervise and engage the children it was super relaxed, No structure, more an open play setting. we liked it, a previous poster stated that it's nothing you can't do at home , this is true. However, There is no clean up for mommies here and I was certainly willing to let my get messier here than at home.

I went here today with my 5 year old, and this was nothing special. They had three stations- one for play dough, one for crayons, and one for paint. The staff person offers no direction. Since this is all stuff we have at home and I was the one making up the activities we might as well have done the activities in our home.

If you have a toddler this is a MUST DO!! I took my daughter when she was a little over a year to the Tadpole BCA Drop-in art class, a great class but she was much too young to really enjoy the different rooms.

My daughter would spend half her time painting/drawing/creating...more

Great space, perfect for little artists and best of all parents/caregivers are not left picking up the mess.

I have been taking my son (3.5) here since he was about 18mths old. It is very fun and a great space to have a toddler explore messy art and then we leave the mess there. The people who run it are great and nice and helpful. They do have smocks but I always dress my kid in clothes that can get messy and take his shoes and socks off. good fun.
