There's something about spring that unleashes a creative bug—maybe it's all those flowers popping up that are just begging to be drawn and painted (well, the flowers that will be popping up). But not all of us are bonafide artists once we get behind an easel or a sketch pad, and not all of us even have easels and sketch pads handy. Of course, New York has several solutions to that.
After the jump, we've mapped out 29 places to get your arts & crafts on, whether that's taking classes in painting, knitting, or jewelry making to hone your skills (or just have a good time), or picking out supplies to do your own project. Since doing art projects if you're not a serious artist often has a little-kid connotation, we've stuck to places that have a healthy offering of adult-only classes. Start planning out your masterpiece now.
