Welcome on behalf of

New England Children’s Art Studio Owners


Are you interested in meeting other New England based art studio owners virtually or in person?

*If you are not based in New England you are still welcome to complete the survey! (We didn’t anticipate this level of interest when we originally set this up.)

Yes? Fantastic! We are glad you found us! This collaborative is still in the stage of initial formation. Please complete this welcome survey so that we can find out more about your business and what excites you about being part of this community! The response so far has been one of utmost appreciation & enthusiasm, we can’t wait to hear from more New England based children’s art studio owners.

As of this spring (2024), Rachel Armentano of Harbor Creative Arts in North Kingstown, RI & Laura-Marie Small of Kidcasso studios in Newton, Wakefield, and Andover, MA have rallied to bring together children’s art studio owners in hopes of lifting one another and our accomplished studios by networking, sharing resources, and providing platforms for collaboration and support in all aspects of our businesses.

Registration is open for an exciting opportunity!!
