    Comment:  Hootenanny Art Annex is starting regular Sunday Art Annex times - it’s not movement per se but there is definitely sensory play and moving around the stations.There’s also a lovely bilingual music class at Hootenanny on Sundays that I have found really inspires my son to dance :)

    Comment:  Hootenanny Music classes are great. Make sure to sign up for Pete’s class. They also have a good art annex on 7th ave. I think both places have classes for 0-3. Also look into my gym on 5th ave. Very cute play space.

    Comment:  Age of child: 1Venue Review: We booked a music birthday party. It was very easy to coordinate details with Kira. Our musician, Mary, was wonderful and really great with the kids. The space for the music is large and there were lots of fun things for all of the kids to enjoy. The main space is much smaller, and it was a bit tight for our large crowd.

    Comment:  We had our twins' 3rd birthday at Hootenanny, and it was great. All the kids seemed to have a really good time, and it was a good length. Note that you are responsible for your own food (including any cake/cupcake/dessert). We ordered pizza from Pizza Plus, and they were familiar with the whole thing. We did the music option; there was some free play with giant blocks for a bit, then the music section (about 45min), then we did lunch and cupcakes. Pete and Kira were great to work with. And they do all the set up and clean up.(Review submitted March 2016)

    Comment:  Huge shoutout to Hootenanny on 15th St and 8th Ave. Their art class is awesome and the stuff my daughter makes there is awesome and many times frame worthy... Really! They use a different artist as inspiration each week and learn about all forms of art. Very cool class. I'm not sure if they are filled up for the semester (starts next week) already but it's worth it to check!

    Comment:  Hootenanny Art House is a great 3 year old party. There is a free play time, music with Pete (who everyone loves) and then time for cake/food. We've been to two parties 3 year old there - one for a neighbor and one for my own son.

    Comment:  We love, love Nikolai. We've taken his class at both MT locations in the slope, as we live between them. I prefer the layout at Hootenany though as well as the class times.He's warm and laid back and a good singer, takes time to explain why different song/games help develop musical abilities, and my daughter (18 mos) worships him. (Plus his own CD of kids music is much more hip & fun than the Music Together CD). He does a sing-a-long at cafe couleur on Fridays at 4pm usually, too, so you could go check him out there in advance of your decision. Also, I haven't taken Pete's class but several friends do and really like him.

    Comment:  Both my kids had their first birthday party at Hootenanny Art House on 15th Street off 8th Avenue. Pete and Kira are wonderful owners, they charge a fee for the two hours and provide entertainment, Pete, who is a wonderful singer and great with kids. There are 2 rooms, one for food and a carpeted room for the kids, you bring in your own food, they provide tables and chairs. They also have an ipod dock so you can play your own music. They are super laid back and accomodating. My first son had parties there from age 1 to 3 and second son had his first birthday there.

My son really enjoyed this class!What would you change about the program? The way the instructor spoke to the children was nice, but a bit simplistic (i.e. - "that's cool!") but that probably annoyed me more than my child. The art looked good at the end of the class, but the projects often didn't mean anything to him (such as painting on top of a cut out of a whale), although he did enjoy creating them.Will you send your child back to this program or class again?

Two rooms, one for activities, another for food. On the smaller side.
