“Graceful. Eloquent. Patient. Real. Dynamic. Inspirational. Organized.” “We have had the pleasure of having Nancy as a part of the community that has instilled creative thinking and trust with our three children. Her incredible organization, planning and ability to find just the right words, examples and medium to inspire our children to step out of their box and create artistic pieces has provided not only our children but my husband and I with great joy. Since the age of 4 we have watched her introduce our children to different mediums and tools and to trust themselves to stretch their mind. She is more than an art teacher, she is a trusted person that sees each of our children in a different light and always with patience and grace. Our children always left art with Nancy with an extra bounce in their step and a smile on their face, but not before showing off their “creative projects” to us with genuine pride. Any child or family, regardless of their artistic ability- because Nancy brings it out in every child - should have Nancy in their community. She is a gift that you can give your children, and the art that comes back- well ours hangs on our walls proudly.” Parent to three children, all students of Art Studio for Children ~Art Studio for Children was born out of a need to find a wonderful place for my artistic girls to explore creatively, and an earnest suggestion from my then four year old: “Mommy, you could teach art here”. She gave me both the clarity and the confidence to do this. Now, 11 years into it, the business has grown dramatically from what I call “word of mom”. I teach over 150 students a week from ages 3-13 out of my home and through the Toronto District School Board enrichment program and Private Schools. I run week-long sleepover camps up on beautiful Lake Simcoe, Art Birthday Parties, Workshops for Moms, Private lessons, and Original Family Portraits. It is so important, I believe, that we all have the opportunity to express ourselves artistically in a quiet and contemplative atmosphere as the world continues to celebrate and promote multi-tasking and hyper-stimulation. This is an opportunity to see ourselves and the world around us in a different way. I love what I do and am grateful everyday for the opportunity I have to share that passion.- Nancy Johnston, Founder, Art Studio for Children~If you don’t see a class time that suits your child’s schedule, we would love to put together a class time for 5 or more children.If you are joining a class after the term has begun, we are very happy to pro rate your fee. check out our new studio pictures by clicking here
