Hello there! At Essem, we believe that, at any age, creative play and exploration helps us uncover creative inclinations that help us solve problems, manage stress, communicate better, and simply be happier. Our mission is to spark joy and inspire creativity in our community.
To that end, we hosts Kids Music/Art Labs, Private Parties & Playdates, (Kid/Family) Friendly Art Shows, Creative Workshops; and we collaborate with likeminded, heart-forward individuals and businesses to bring art and joy to our community.
In addition to explorations in color and texture through paint/mediums, some of our favorite studio projects include using upcycled materials (cardboard, plastic, bottles, cartons, etc) and goodies foraged from nature (leaves, pinecones, twigs, rocks, acorns, etc). We also dabble in Clay Play; Printmaking; Free-form Sculptures; and thoughtfully honed crafts to expand the imagination and empower artists and makers of all ages to make creative decisions.
