Welcome Art Studio Owners!

Whether your are a New England based children’s art studio owner or from somewhere else in the United States, welcome!

We are so glad you found us. 🙂


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.


If you are interested in meeting other New England based art studio owners virtually or in person please complete our survey!

If you are not based in New England, please also complete our survey, as we plan to host virtual professional development opportunities and would love to plan according to the most requested time zones.

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 art studio owners across the country and especially those of you in the New England or Northeastern area.

Sun & Sea Summit

In June Rachel Armentano (Harbor Creative Arts) & Laura Marie Small (Kidcasso) hosted a group of New England based children’s art studio owners at the big, beautiful Beach n Board “Coral Cabana” in Narragansett, RI for a business summit. 

The group had many meaningful roundtable discussions about business models, studio management, cultivating a staff, created lasting bonds and support systems with other business owners, and so much more!
