Artists' Studio - Center for the Performing Arts
The Artists’ Studio was founded in January, 2003 by Joellyn and David Young.
Artist: Craftsman, artisan. 1. A person who does anything very well, with imagination and a feeling for form and effect. 2. A person who works in, or is skilled in the techniques of any of the fine arts.
Studio: a room or rooms where an artist, musician, or photographer works. A room or rooms where dancing, music and drama lessons are given.
These are the principles upon which The Artists’ Studio is founded. It is our goal to provide a safe, nurturing environment for the artist to grow in his or her craft. We provide only professional instructors who have, or are currently working in the performing arts and related art environments. We provide different levels of instruction to encourage those who are new to performance art and to challenge and define those who have chosen the arts as a career or vocation.
The Arts are incredibly important to the total development of a human being. It has recently been discovered that children who study music have an easier time with mathematics and reasoning skills, those who study drama develop reading and memory skills at a faster rate, and of course, dance provides an athletic and cardio workout for any age.
If you or your child is currently looking for a place to discover their creativity, please come and visit The Artists’ Studio.
