We are SO excited to host this 4 week workshop inspired by our amazingly creative friends over at @hatchartstudio 🤗 Each artist will receive his or her own dollhouse to customize over the course of the workshop. We will be painting, designing furniture, creating peg people, making blueprints, and so much more! Sky is the limit.
There is a Saturday offering as well as a Tuesday evening class. Workshop is drop off and suitable for ages 5+. Link to register is in our bio!
Anyone care to guess the feeling here? The large graphite sticks and charcoal were a hit. Lots of body movement, smudging, and giggles!
Run to your nearest bookstore and pick up this beautiful book. The message behind it is so important for adults and children. It set the tone of our preschool art class today along with a variety of drawing materials and surfaces. Such a great read!
Good morning from our #artgarden Hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
Happy birthday to this special 4 year old!! It was so much fun watching all of the guests build and create for his construction themed party. Thank you for letting us be a part of your big day!
Well that flew by

Tomorrow Mrs. Jenn will be hosting our Toddler Art Drop-in class from 10-11am and Open Studio from 12-1pm. The studio is set and Mrs. Jenn is ready to create with you!
I cannot wait to see how this giant 9x12' canvas evolves over the next 8 weeks. It's no secret that collaborative and community projects are my absolute favorite. There is something so magical about watching children and their families express themselves alongside one another. Exploring the materials and finding new ways to use them. Letting go of inhibitions and freeing their creativity. Getting lost in the process and forgetting all about the outcome.
One of my favorite updates to the studio- our new mirror wall 🤗So many possibilities!
What an amazing day! Our 8 week session of Toddler Art Playgroup and Preschool Art Group started back up, and we had a blast! Here is a look at our busy day in the atelier. 🤗

Love seeing dads bonding with their children through art making! Thank you for joining us for Open Studio today.
Tomorrow will feature our Toddler Art hour and Open Studio! Let's create! 🤗
When I facilitated a community painting workshop with the Windsor Village Park youth last week I left beaming with joy. It was so amazing to create this piece with over 20 children and 5 different types of paint-I was truly amazed by their creativity and teamwork. So today when I went to pick up a drop cloth I left there and saw the painting hung proudly in this spot-fitting so perfectly you'd think we measured the canvas to fit there-it reaffirmed to me that I am exactly where I'm meant to be. Art outreach is so powerful and I hope to work with this amazing facility more in the future!
I'm so excited for our Preschool Art Group this fall! I've been busy prepping in the studio all week, transforming the atelier for this special 8 week session. 🤗Find out more about it and register through the link in our bio!

We solemnly swear we are up to no good We ended Wizards+Fairies camp yesterday with magical potions and spells!The campers spent hours mixing, fizzing and hexing away. We entered the studio to find that Wicky Wizard and Poppy Fairy had left us magical liquids, bone dust, and an assortment of ghoulish items to add into our potions-as well as hand written letters that were hidden in the studio. What a way to end an amazing summer full of awesome camps! Thank you to everyone who joined us this summer!! Fall Break Camps will be posted in the next few weeks.
I am SO proud of this little artist. To you this picture may just be a toddler playing in shave cream paint-but there is so much more to the story and I just have to share. This young artist and his wonderful family have been attending Toddler Art Saturday Drop-Ins for a few weeks now. During his first visit to the studio he spent his time observing and making his rounds between the dry erase board and puzzles. Second visit was the same. Third visit he began to try some chalk pastels and other dry mediums. Mom was so patient and encouraging, letting him become comfortable with both the space and the materials on his own terms. Today he blew us away!! He went straight for the foam paint and mirrors and began working with the popsicle sticks, but soon was reaching his fingers in and smearing the paint between his hands. He was even kind enough to share it with me 🤗Every child has a different approach to art and to new environments, and that is perfectly normal! Patience, support, and continuing to provide these opportunities gives them the courage to keep trying new things. It is truly beautiful to witness their growth.
Another amazing day of Fairies+Wizards Art Camp! We made fairy wings and wizard capes, created beautiful fairy crowns, sculpted food and dishes for our fairies out of clay, and so much more. Take a look! 🤗
What an amazing first day of Fairies+Wizards Art Camp! The campers spent most of the day working hard on their fairy and wizard dwellings. They were loving all of the materials and we were loving all of their creativity. I've created a lot of fairy houses in my time, but putting them in pottery saucers like the brilliant ones @mericherryla made with her students is definitely my new favorite way to do them! 🏼
Process shots from today's workshop with the Windsor Village Park campers! Today we focused on collaboration, community, and how we can put our ideas together to make an impact. The artists started with liquid watercolors in spray bottles, spray paint, and foam paint at our giant easel. Next we took the canvas down and added acrylic paint in squeeze bottles as well as with a brush or palette knife. The children connected with the materials and used them as a language- conveying their message of teamwork and community through their artwork. @indyparks
What an amazing day with the summer campers at Windsor Village Park @indyparks Every day I feel so privileged to work alongside these amazing children and visit wonderful facilities such as the Windsor Village Park Family Center. Thank you for letting us come create with you today! Can't wait to see your masterpiece hung for the whole community to see!
There are still spots available for tomorrow night's Kinetic Drawing Workshop! Registration is up on our site. See you tomorrow!
The atelier is the perfect place for a playgroup meet-up! If you're interested in hosting a play date with us email Fran at email@example.com to set your date. Thank you so much to the families who joined me this morning! It was a colorful blast!
So much fun mixing colors with a Playgroup this morning. We began with the book Mix It Up and spent the morning mixing away with paint, slime, and collage! Thank you for joining me, artists!
