The best description of what we do here at the studio is from the book YOUNG AT ART by Susan Striker:
“If you want your child to “fit in” at school, to understand that they are “no better” than other children, and to never take risks, [this studio] is not for you. If it is important to you that your child’s clothes always be neat and tidy, then [this studio] will make you uncomfortable. I’m not promising to turn your child into Michelangelo. [ This studio] is not about drawing or painting well. It is about encouraging your child to think independently and confidently. It is about helping your child explore their surroundings in an adventurous manner, but with sensitivity. It is about helping your child maintain a level of curiosity all children are born with, but most lose by the time they are ready for school”
