One of our favourite places here on urbanmoms.ca is the Marketplace – our place to share the unique and inspiring stories of moms starting, owning, running and managing businesses!
Do you own or run a business? If so, we’d love to hear from you! Just send a 100-200 word summary of your story along with a picture or two to email@example.com and we’ll take care of the rest.
NOTE: we’re currently working on a feature about moms succeeding in direct marketing businesses. If you’re one of those moms, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how you can be a part of this feature!
And now, take a moment to read Nancy’s amazing story!
FEATURED MOM BUSINESS: ART STUDIO
Art Studio was born out of a need to find a wonderful place for our artistic girls to explore creatively and an earnest suggestion from our then four year old – "mommy, you could teach art here". She gave me both the clarity and the confidence to do this.
Now 6 years into it, the business has grown dramatically from what I call "word of mom". I teach over 70 students a week from ages 3-13 out of my home and through the Toronto District School Board enrichment program.
Side business have developed naturally- I run week long sleepover camps at my cottage, Art Birthday Parties and Workshops for moms who were jealous that the children got all that creative time.
It is so important, I believe, that we all have the opportunity to express ourselves artistically in a quiet 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.
Art classes for children and adults throughout the day.
Come and explore all mediums including collage, sculpture and mixed media using real artist grade paint and supplies.
WE DO BIRTHDAY PARTIES TOO !!!
