Why an Art studio?
I have had a dream for a long time to have a studio where I could work make costumes and puppets, but also have workshops for children and adults. I envisioned opening a studio where children and adults could gather together to create new things from old things to find new use to seemingly useless things. Learn how to sew, knit, crochet, make puppets and just enjoy the creation for what it is. I try hard to put emphases on the process and not necessarily on the finished product, especially working with children.
That dream is becoming a reality right here at The Beacon Art Studios.
I’ve spent most of my professional life working as a Production Designer and Costume Designer, now I am ready to share some of my knowledge and experience with my community.
That’s why an Art studio.
