Art and creativity
What could be better than entertaining kids while they learn? That’s the mission of Hasna Abohomos, owner of Kids Design Cafe, 725 S. Adams Road, Suite 185, in Birmingham. “It’s not academic. It’s about creativity and fun,” Abohomos said of the programs she offers for ages three to 17, who are looking to learn arts and design in a comfortable, casual environment. She offers everything from one-on-one private classes to group offerings as well as birthday parties and other events. An interior designer by training with degrees in business, marketing and fine arts, Abohomos said she loves working with children and teens, noting they need to “get off their phones and Xboxes and explore their creativity. It’s important for their brains and mental health. I feel so proud of them as they hold their finished products.” Classes include instruction in drawing, painting, pottery, clay, glass and other arts and crafts, as well as interior design training for teens. “I can teach them, or they can do whatever they want,” she said.
