Fun, delicious, and educational, CAW Group Experiences are an EXCELLENT way to get your group of 10 to 25 children together for some casual learning, eating, and bonding too! 




We are committed to hosting beautifully curated youth arts classes, theatrical presentations, events for adults and families too. Join us for a class series, a food tour, or maybe one of our themed tasting parties.

Creative Arts Workshop Teaching Artists have had our presence at the Nyack Public Schools Saturday Academy, Summer Creative Arts Fridays, and facilitating Arts and Crafts at the Nyack Center After School Program, the Montessori of Nyack, and Greenwood Lake Library. 

CAW also partners with the Rockland Pride Center for our PRIDE Family Workshops open to our LGBTQIA families. Each event will host family activities, games, and refreshments. This has been a wonderful way to meet and greet with our community and kids! We have been proud partners sine June 2021. Pride Family events happen every other month. The next is October, date TBA.


We are running early summer and late summer Kids Summer Days at CAW 2023. We will be making art and exploring Nyack's artists and Culinary Landmarks from 9am-4:30pm, Mon-Fri. Early registration opens January 2023. 

CAW follows Nyack Public Schools mask mandate policies. As of 03/03/2022 Masks are optional inside the workshop. We ask that anyone feeling ill or presenting symptoms of any illness should stay home and rest.
