Our Motto: Art+Freinds=Joy
We met over 20 years ago and connected over the rich possibilities that art has to bring joy to people's lives through creativity and relationships. Working together in a variety of school settings, we brought learning through the arts to many children and their families in our community and saw first hand what an impact a beautiful place to create had on people's lives.
Now we are at a point in our careers where we wanted to bring the arts to the broader community of children, so that anyone could experience the beauty and peace our approach brings to children's lives.
We have a passion for creating art in an inviting place where friends can gather. We love how the arts and the creative process have the ability to slow us down, make us more mindful and bring us to a time and place in our hearts that we long for as we live in our busy lives. Most of all, nothing makes us happier than bringing a smile to your face as you create something that you can't wait to take home or share with someone.
We hope that you pop on over to our little slice of creative heaven and join us for a peaceful time making art and making memories!
