Art Studio for Children was born both out of a need to find a wonderful place for my artistic girls to explore creatively and a desire to share my passion for creativity. That was 15 years ago.  Since then we have brought the creative experience to more than 5000 families. Look at how we’ve grown and some of the fabulous things we do-

Come work in our fabulous home studio

Work with us on a painting you have always wanted to paint (no artistic experience required)

We are so proud of these and you will be too!

Let me help your children create the most beloved and cherished gift you could imagine

We have a unique and adored sleepover summer art camp on beautiful Lake Simcoe and I would love to meet with you and tell you all about it

We want to bring art to your school

Have a party with us for a little person   or a big person

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.

I want to bring more art into your lives. Please let me know how I can help.



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 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.   Everyone should have Nancy in their community, she is a gift that you can give your children, and the art that comes back – well, hangs on our walls proudly.
