I took my 2 year-old, 8 year-old and a 10 year-old to this workshop and each one of them had a great time! You get to explore, be creative and it sure is a unique experience not just for kids but for adults as well. Frank is great with kids and keeps them busy and engaged by guiding them throughout the workshop, I highly recommend Little Pulp!!

Went this past Saturday with my friend and her 5-yo and 13-yo. Both kids did not want to leave they had such a great time! Frank is lively and engaging with kids of all ages and they're going to learn so much about printmaking and collaborative arts. If you're looking for something to do with your kids this summer that is not your run-of-the mill activity, I would highly recommend Little Pulp for a fun and unique experience!!

If you are looking for something different to do with your kids, go see Frank at Little Pulp! My 9 year old son absolutely loved the class!  He's usually not terribly excited by arts and crafts, but this experience was awesome!  He was totally engaged for the full session. He especially enjoyed using the giant rolling printmaker (not sure what it's really called).  I also had a blast creating my own prints.  So fun!

This place EXCEEDED all expectations. We took our 7 year old and 5 year old to a session one Sunday. They didn't want to leave. Frank (the owner) and his team kept a group of kids of all age levels engaged for 2.5+ hours. This is a fun experience for parents and kids alike. Frank teaches cooperation and collaboration on a large group project, but the kids are also free (and encouraged) to try a bunch of different types of printmaking projects. 


We can't wait to go back again. This was a cool, fun, and utterly unique experience. 


Amazing space, amazing experience with amazing owner (artist). We went there for my 6 year old and my 2.5 year old was just tagging along. Frank (the owner) invited him to join and he loved playing with colors! Frank made the whole experience very special and interesting for little ones. We can not wait to go back again.

Thank you Frank for making this happen for our community.


There is nothing else like this place! My son (3 years old at the time) and I were invited by a friend. We had no idea what to expect during our first visit, and I was blown away. Frank, the owner, is energetic, great with kids of all ages, but best of all, thrives on creativity and is equally passionate about fostering creativity in the kids at his workshops. The children are usually engaged in a larger art collaboration in the beginning of a session (maybe paper mâché or printing using odd household accessories or tools) and then seamlessly transition to other projects. If a child loses interest in one project, there are always two to three other options to engage. The "meat" of the Little Pulp workshops is the actual printmaking. The printmaking is a 4-5 step process that adults will enjoy just as much as the kids. Kids are allowed to be as creative as their mind's desire. They will get messy. They will have  a tactile learning experience. It's really incredible. My son and I have gone back three times, and seriously, we never get bored. Frank does a phenomenal job of keeping things fresh and interesting. We've even gained some prints for our apartment that are really cool. That was a bonus I wasn't expecting!


We went to Little Pulp with another family, total of 5 kids age 5, 6, 7, 8, and 11.  Great open space with many opportunities to be creative in a friendly, warm atmosphere.  The owner Frank is a Queens native who will keep the kids engaged throughout the process. Adults and children had a great time making prints which came out really nice - we are thinking of having some framed for the grandparents.  Print making is great for all ages & even the youngest kids were able to create some really wonderful pieces.  Location was nice because of the easy parking and we were able to grab movie and dinner upstairs after the class.  I would highly recommend Little Pulp for people of all ages!


What a wonderful way to spend an afternoon! My son, 6, had a blast with all the different activities and opportunities for creativity. Frank, the owner, really "gets" the kids and is able to draw them out of their shell and get them brainstorming and participating!

My son doesn't really consider himself very interested in art, and I admittedly had to drag him to Little Pulp. But at the end of the session he didn't want to leave and couldn't stop talking about it! I even got the rarely seen or heard "You were right, Mom" out of it!

Bonus: The kids get to have utterly messy, hands-on fun and your house doesn't have to suffer!


LOVE IT!! We went there with the girl scouts for a trip. Frank said the trip would be 3 hours and I could not imagine how he would fill the time. He kept the kids busy from when they walked in until they left.one of the best trips by far! Not only did he keep them busy but he kept them engaged. The girls ranged from ages 5 to 12. Frank was really wonderful, all the girls got a chance to learn and make prints. Favorite, by far, favorite trip ever!


This workshop is great! I went to a toddler session with my two-year-old and we both had a lot of fun. Frank had several different activities planned, was extremely engaging, and was fantastic with the kids. We made lots of art to take home and the session is long enough, with enough different projects, that we really felt we got our money's worth. 


We have gone to the Little Pulp Print Making Workshop twice now. My 5 yr old and 8 yr old could not wait to go back after the first time. Frank is a hands on teacher and inspires to kids to be creative and imaginative. There is collaboration and individual work. The parents are encouraged and expected to participate and we had just as much fun than the kids.
