"Educators tell us that art encourages fine motor skills, neural development, and problem-solving abilities and that it can be used effectively to teach and understand other key subjects such as reading, writing, math, and science. Therapists tell us that art is valuable because it allows children to process their world, to deal with sometimes scary emotions in a safe way, and because it gives them critical sensory input. Artists tell us that art is important for its own sake—as a source of beauty and expression, as well as simply for the process of creating. Kids tell us that art is fun, an activity they enjoy. Parents tell us that art is vital to their families because it keeps everyone engaged and happy and helps with the sometimes difficult transitions of the day."

In a world that’s becoming more and more mobile, one can easily define the perfect creative space wherever they so please. The definition of a creative space is no longer defined by the walls of a studio, but is rather a reflection of the very essence of that which inspires you.
Do you know that feeling when you are so engrossed in something you are doing that everything else disappears, time passes and there is no future, no past, only the present? We have all felt that sense of time disappear when we lose ourselves in an activity we love.
