Collaboration Inspiration

In about one month, we’ll celebrate our one year anniversary in Hillsboro Village and we have been inspired in ways we could not have predicted.  The students, families, and artists who visit us at Little Art House have been so kind and encouraging.  Each season has brought new ideas and classes that have been challenging, exciting and fulfilling.

Collaborating with others to provide new opportunities in the neighborhood has been one of our favorite developments that has happened since our move to Acklen Avenue.  From our first experience with mask-making last October with artist Alex Lockwood and Genie from Arcade Kids to “Haute in the Hospital” with Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt, the past few months have been full of collaborative events, and we have some new ones in the works that we haven’t even announced yet. (Keep an eye out - we’ll tell you about them soon!)  These events are really special opportunities for us to work with our neighbors and grow our businesses together as a Hillsboro Village family!

Since our move to Hillsboro Village, we have been eagerly awaiting the restoration of the beloved dragon in Fannie Mae Dees Park.  On May 20, we will celebrate the dragon’s reveal at 4:00pm with our friends and neighbors from Hillsboro Village.  That will be followed by live band performances into the night. We'll have a craft table set up to make dragon puppets from 4:00-6:00, and Arcade Kids will have an awesome tattoo station going as well!  It is sure to be an amazing time and we can't wait to celebrate the restored dragon with you!
