What About the Kid Who Loves Art?

Open Studio at Averyboo Arts

Today I had 4 new girls join my painting class, which was a nice surprise. The eldest of the bunch was very bummed to learn that class was only once a week. She really wanted to come back tomorrow for another lesson, so I suggested Open Studio Hours to her Grandmother.

As I started to explain the benefits & how Open Studio worked, she cut me off to say, “Eh, they can do that anytime at home.” Oh, the disappointment on that girls face…

Well, yes, of course you can make art at home, I absolutely encourage it. But for kids who love art – Averyboo is a place that resonates with their creative spirit.

Kids who love soccer can always kick a ball around at home also, but playing the sport with team mates at the park is more enjoyable… it nurtures the spirit and brings joy into their life.

Yes, you can use crayons and paint at home, but Open Studio is like a creative candy store for the kid who loves art. The studio is inspirational, non-judgmental, a place where the creative kid feels like they belong.

Take it from someone who was once a creative kid herself… having enriching opportunities outside of a class & to be given freedom to be an artist is valuable.
