The word “little” is one of the most meaningful parts of why we chose to name our studio Little Art House. We have chosen smaller locations for our classes and camps in order to create a space that feels comfortable, personal, and private like the studios in our homes. From the room at University School of Nashville where we host summer camps, to our space on Music Row, to our amazing studio in Hillsboro Village, our goal is to always have a warm and inviting environment.
Another reason we keep “little” in mind is the difficulty of being brave in a large group. In a smaller group, our students feel like they can imagine, explore and create with less pressure. Small groups are equally important in order for every participant to get solid feedback and guidance from the teacher during each class. We love getting to know our students in weekly classes as well as adult classes for a few hours. It allows us to ensure the experience and lesson is as enjoyable as possible for each student.
These smaller groups are also perfect for bringing in artists with unique mediums or processes. Some artists are not experienced in teaching and others practice artmaking that is quite complicated. With smaller groups, artists can get to know those in the class and really dig into their process with each student. It is always exciting to have artists come and share their process in our studio with adult classes!
