In the nine years since I opened Small Hands Big Art, we've passed a lot of paint and washed a lot of brushes. We've encouraged and inspired and cheered and celebrated a lot of kids. A LOT. We've influenced and shaped countless imaginations, and at times I know this studio was the only happy place that some kids had. There were days we were pretty sure we couldn't come up with a single other original creative idea (but then we did!).
But can I just tell you what there has not been? There has not been a single day that I have come in here and not wanted to literally hug the walls. Some nights when I am locking up and turn to look back into the studio in the twilight of the evening with the twinkling lights softly glowing, I actually say "Thank You" out loud. Thank you for giving so much joy to so many young people, to so many families... and to me.
I have poured my heart and soul into this studio and at times I may have squeezed the key way too tight! I finally feel ready to share and am excited to share it with you. This studio is like my child, and I've described this feeling to people by saying now it feels like it's time for my child to go off to college!
If you're a creative entrepreneur like me and dream of making a difference in children's lives through the amazing power of art, and would like to own your own Small Hands Big Art studio, we're growing and excited to share our successful model! Especially if you're in North or South Carolina, because then we can hang out and have lunch too!
