“Every child is an artist.
The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”
“The imagination is everything”
“Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.”
"Because you gotta have art!"
Proprietor and creator, Kate Shema, was born into a long line of artisans and tinkerers. From stained glass and woodworking to metals and fabrics, from child apprentice to design major to adult artist, no medium or canvas was left unpainted, unsoldered, unembellished, unturned … uncharted.
Her heart is in exploring human potential and building self-esteem by nurturing creativity and self-expression via a myriad of mediums and platforms. Her dream is this studio.

at the corner of Bethel and Main.
For the art, the mind and the soul.
American kids are getting smarter with each generation but there has been a decline in their creativity over the past 2 to 3 decades. Being creative is essential to learning in school, and surviving in the workforce. Kids start out being creative but their creative abilities can drop dramatically by 12th grade.
The goal is not to be more right brain but to use the whole brain – little tinkers make big thinkers!
