The Roger Smith Hotel Introduces The Blooming Young Artists Packages



We are thrilled to partner with Private Picassos to offer 3 art packages for families with children visiting The Roger Smith Hotel, who are seeking a lively and inspiring guided art experience.

Each package is geared towards your blooming young artists (BYA’s); it includes a tour to either MoMA or The Highline, Bryant Park or Central Park, followed by a private, hour-long art lesson back at the hotel, where they will explore the artists and themes discussed.  All art materials are included.

We offer 3 packages to choose from:

  • Silly Places and Faces: Exploring the Artwork of Pablo Picasso at The Museum of Modern Art
  • Things That Go: Exploring 19th and 20th Century Sculptures at The Museum of Modern Art
  • Outdoor Sketching and Public Art Walks on either The Highline, Bryant Park or Central Park

Following the session, each child will be asked to do us the honor of donating one of their masterpieces to the Roger Smith Hotel’s ”˜Blooming Young Artists Wall of Fame’. Children are encouraged to keep their remaining masterpieces.

-On arrival back to the hotel for part two, each child will receive a goodie/snack bag.
-Aprox. run time 2.5 hours.
-Price: $145 for 1 adult and 1 child (add $65 per extra child/add $40 per extra adult)
