Yep, that's right. our client Sage Raval has started the most phenom art experience for kids: Small Shop. something i wish i'd had when i was a a kid.
you see, even when i was a freshy in college trying to find my peeps in this strange new world, i'd wonder around campus feeling like the outsider i was, and then I'd spot some cool kids hangin out, and i'd think, "who are they? they're so cool and interesting looking, i wanna hang out with them. i wanna BE them... those are my peeps!" (see, total loser-freshmen vibe, but that's seriously the way i felt.) well turns out those peeps were the art students. the cool kids, in my book.
i never had any formal training in art -- i'm a DIY girl in that department. but if i had one do-over or parallel life to live, i'd go to art school! Fun, right?! i'd learn how to draw and paint and do sculpture and screen printing and and and and... i mean, doesn't everyone need to know how to draw beyond stick figures? besides, you could kill in Pictionary!
well, now that i'm all growed up with kids of my own... it turns out i have now found my way into the visual arts through photography, and graphic design before that... but i still wish i could take formal art lessons. art is just cool.
But ya know what's even cooler?
Private art lessons.
In your home.
For your kids! (ok, you can probably hover if you want and pick up a trick or two). But seriously, no driving? no hauling my Smalls into their car seats and fighting traffic and rushing to get back home in time for dinner? Sold already.
That's what Small Shop offers. They will send a fine artist out to your home for individual or small-group art lessons for workshops, special events, or on-going weekly lessons.
Small Shop was founded by our client Sage Raval. She's uber-awesome, and an amazing artist herself. Check it out.
