About Fruiggie™

Fruiggie™ Ancient Organic Crafts Studio is an all natural, non-toxic and eco-creative space that offers classes and workshops for children ages 12months to 12 years old. Our classes and workshops are based on the ancient teachings of arts and crafts using materials from nature as well as recycled materials.Our studio provides a safe, worry free and educational environment where ‘ALL’ children are welcomed to engage in play together, including children with special needs and allergen concerns. The uniqueness of our studio is that our art supplies and materials are 100% organic, vegan, eco-friendly, all natural, non-toxic, and sustainable, and therefore non-harmful to children or the environment. Students are able to explore art utilizing tools and materials found in nature as our ancient ancestors used, such as twigs, leaves and plants. Our art supplies, such as our paints and crayons are also fruit, vegetable and plant based, which are all compostable.

Fruiggie’s mission is to inspire creative play and artistic expression through nature, while understanding the connection between ancient art-creativity, environmental awareness and being health conscious.


Meet the founder & Instructor: Tamika Albertini

Picture

As a Jill of all trades with a passion for children, wellness and art, I began extensive research to find an eco-friendly children’s art studio in New York City (NYC), which provided non-toxic and eco-friendly art supplies. Not coming across any located in NYC or in the U.S., I created what is now known to be the very first ‘Ancient Organic Crafts Studio!’ Pretty awesome I must say. Having previously worked in various art studios across NYC and while teaching sewing and arts & crafts classes to both children and adults, 2013 is when I finally decided that it was time to build my own company, Fruiggie ©, and become its ‘Organic Arts & Crafts Instructor.’ This provided the medium for my creative background and training in art, fashion design and interior decorating to fully flourish. I was now able to share my experiences and expertise through my creative curriculums by way of Fruiggie ©.

It is my observation that too many communities lack art activities that cater to all children, especially those children with special needs and allergen concerns. Everyday our children are exposed to a toxic environment as well as toxic products, causing long term ailments, developmental disabilities and allergies. According to the US Census Bureau, statistics show that of the 53.9 million school-aged children (aged 5-17) in the U.S, about 2.8 million (5.2 percent) were reported to have a disability in 2010. In 2013, among children ages 3 to 17, nearly 14 percent has a developmental disability. This is a great concern of mine! What will it take for these beautiful young people to be in an inclusive healthy learning environment I thought??

Creating a safe and worry free space where ‘ALL’ children are welcomed to engage in play together became my purpose in life and my answer. Play is important for a child’s development and allows children to learn to communicate emotions, to think, be creative and enhance problem solving skills, while also helping your child learn social skills, refine motor skills and build cognition of thought. Children shouldn’t be excluded from creative self-expression due to a special need or allergy, and so Fruiggie © provides a safe and educational environment for playtime while using natural non-toxic items such as leaves, twigs, fruits, veggies, plant based paint and play dough as the artistic tools. What’s more is that the kiddos can ‘eat’ their tools after they create with them and become healthier because of it! So kool!

On a subconscious level, this allows for children to connect the dots between ancient art-creativity, being environmentally aware of what they use and health conscious of what they eat. They are creating with natural items that they can eat as a healthy snack. That’s being in-tuned with nature! This is a ‘new’ way of learning and play, yet the old and ancient way of how indigenous cultures connected with their environment. Let’s bring these natural ways back around for the betterment of our environment, our health, and our creativity by starting with our children leading the way. I am excited that Fruiggie © is making this a reality. Please join me. Let’s paint, let’s play!

Love & Light,
Tamika

About Child Development Support Corporation (CDSC)

 

CDSC is a community-based, not-for-profit organization incorporated in 1975.  CDSC began as a self-help group headed by parents to provide child care for families in the Fort Greene and Bedford-Stuyvesant sections of Brooklyn, New York.  From our modest beginnings of providing the single service of on-site childcare, we have evolved into a multi-service organization that provides a wide range of services to children, youth, and families.

 

We help families and individuals to become self-sufficient and self-reliant.  We are motivated by the belief that vibrant, healthy communities start with strong, secure families. Our unique ability to recognize and adapt to changing community circumstances and needs enables us to continually provide proactive, responsive, relevant, and quality programs and services.

At the Go Africa Harlem Street Festival 2017, we will bring a sample of what we do best – resources and information to help parents access quality subsidized and nonsubsidized child care services throughout New York City including summer or afterschool programs. Additionally, we will provide information to help guide individuals interested in starting a homebased early childhood program through the entire process.

 

We will offer a variety of promotional items and activities for children and adults. Also, our staff will be able to serve participants who Spanish, French or Haitian Creole.

 

Our program is fully funded by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services.
