To Bring Joy to People's Lives Through Creativity and Connection
It's more than just glitter and glue. It's about being together and sharing our talents, no matter how raw. It is about celebrating our uniqueness as creators of ideas. It is about exploring, discovering, connecting.
Two friends had a simple idea, born of their love of the arts and of people: create a space for the community's children to come in, slow down, and be creative with their family and friends. Their passion for process-based art versus cookie cutter art inspires their programs and makes sure that visitors have a memorable and one-of-a-kind experience!
Creative experiences, no matter how simple, bring us a sense of peace and joy that can be missing from our every day lives. And creating is always best when you share that time with others, drawing inspiration and encouragement from each other.
We believe that creativity is in everyone. We believe creativity takes many forms and is the thing that makes us human, connecting us in every aspect of our lives. We believe that everyone needs to have a time and place to engage in the creative process: to imagine, discover and play.
We believe that creativity expresses itself in a supportive atmosphere where we learn from and listen to each other. Making art with others motivates us to try new things, techniques, media. Sharing our art with others gives us another reason to make art!
We believe beauty inspires us to create, so our studio is designed to be inspiring to both children and adults, making them feel comfortable to relax and explore their unique talents in a safe and encouraging environment.
We believe that art has a way of transforming us, by giving us permission to put our cares and worries away for a little while, and be present in the moment. Creative self-expression allows us to work out our feelings, frustrations and bring joy into our lives.
