Brooklyn Doodles

​​​Danielle Katz was born Trinidad and Tobago. From an early age, she knew that she was passionate about art, finding it to be a medium through which she could express her political and social views. When she moved to the U.S. she decided she wanted to pursue a career in art while also teaching it to young children.

In 2013 Danielle became the owner/operator of Brooklyn Doodles​; a family-focused business offering dynamic art classes and playgroups for children 6 months to 5 years old at local daycares in Brooklyn. In July 2014, Danielle rented a space in Crown Heights and introduced a 3-day-a-week preschool alternative program that brings together a play and art curriculum into one group for ages 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years old. At its core, this program's art classes offer a unique blend of art and science exploration coupled with yoga, music and creative movement.

Danielle decided to move Brooklyn Doodles into the Brooklyn Free School in Fort Green/Clinton Hill, which has a philosophy of democratic education; she currently operates her classes out of that location.

Danielle received a $5,000 loan from CAMBA Economic Development Corporation for construction costs and for purchasing equipment. CAMBA EDC provides small business loans for amounts up to $15,000 for Brooklyn-based entrepreneurs for start up costs, inventory purchases, equipment purchases​ and working capital.
