2015 Art Classes Dover, NH and beyond the dream and living the passion

A big dream, that is how it all began. Creative Spirit Art Studio, a choice to be creative, having the time to focus on making artwork, and teaching art classes and creative workshops was the self-realization that when our hearts call there is a moment we must act. I wanted to create, and I did. A lovely little studio where the process of making art could happen.
Weekly classes for children open doors to expand drawing skills and translate their ideas into visual communication of how they see the world, what they love, and how they want to approach the making process. With the right perspective and mindset it's true life learning. Art Classes go beyond the making here. It's a process of discovery
 how to see,  choosing ideas that make you feel connected, having trust that yes you can do it and by doing again and again you grow.
It doesn't matter how young or how old we are it is step by step that we move forward.
