BY QEDC It's In Queens ON Nov 18, 2020
ArtStrong, which is spearheaded by Astoria residents Ashley Cavadas and Hannah Lokken, is currently selling Holiday Ornament Kits, which include the materials necessary to create up to 12 colorful and dazzling ornaments. This includes two mini rolling pins, a variety of cookie cutters, stamps, gems, work mats, paint, and some secret ingredients.
The kits promote family-friendly activities, but Cavadas and Lokken also suggest them for Girls’ Night Out and Date Night fun.
Each kit costs $49, and ArtStrong offers free shipping. Buy two or more and get a $10 discount.
Art Strong is a Long Island City-based community art center that offers enrichment classes and camp options for children, while also organizing parties and special events. In response to Covid this past summer, the nonprofit, which won the Queens Economic Development Corporation’s StartUP! Business Competition in 2019, sold Home Art Kits with materials such as an apron, a sketchbook, pre-recorded videos, step-by-step printed instructions, and bonus prompts.
