Bringing Creativity to People's Lives
We met over 20 years ago and connected over the rich possibilities that the Reggio Emilia approach has to not only the arts, but to bringing joy to people's lives through creativity and relationships. Working together in a variety of school settings, we brought the Reggio Emilia experience to many children and their families and saw first hand how powerful the approach is to developing the whole child and bringing people together.
Now we are at a point in our careers where we wanted to bring the Reggio Emilia approach to the broader community, so that everyone who walked through our doors could experience the beauty and peace this method brings to children and their families lives.
We have a passion for bringing fun and creativity into people's lives in a warm and 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!
