Stacy Teixeira, The Studio Boss, Art Teacher


"My background is with business management and and teaching pre-school.. My passion has always been children and art. I believe that art is a perfect way to build creative energy and confidence that serves well with lifetime successes. With two young children of my own, we work with art almost everyday."

"What sets our studio apart from other kids art studios cannot be put into words. You have to feel it to know it. Sit in on an art lesson with you child today!" CD 

​​Daunell Salvadore, Creative Coordinator, Art Teacher

"I studied art and art history in college.  I was a nanny for 2 years and then returned to the art field.. While I do not have children of my own I really love spending time with them.

Doing art with kids is what I love. I get a lot of joy out of helping them to express themselves through art. I often find that art is a way for them to express their feelings on everyday life.

I am in the beginning stages of making connections with our community and offering many ways to utilize our services at Schools, Senior Living, Apartment and Condo facilities, Corporate Team Building and more. Our creative services are endless."

Cathy Hertel, Glass Goddess, Art Teacher


“Working with glass had allowed me to learn, create, and enjoy the fascinating world of Glass Art in fun and unimaginable ways. I love to teach kids, teens, adults and seniors to work with glass at their own pace in their own unique ways. As a glass art teacher, my greatest enjoyment is to see my students unlock their creative abilities, and let their hand to express and discover their talents while working with glass art projects.”

"I have been a children's book illustrator for over 25 years. We opened up our children's art studio 6 years ago with the intent of teaching children that we are all artists with a unique creativity process. Helping children find their creative artist and to have confidence in their ability is what I love best. Once you help them release their creativity, the possibilities are unlimited."
