The Messy Artist, an art studio for kids, focuses on sensory exploration and the process of art. All the art projects we do are open ended in nature, and the children can use the materials in any way they choose. We follow a "hands off" rule and request that adults not to touch their child's artwork and instead create their own projects alongside their children. The Messy Artist believes this approach encourages independence and success, and builds self-esteem.
The Messy Artist program was created by Donna Bernstein, an early childhood educator and child development specialist with a Master of Arts degree and twenty-five years of teaching experience. Donna is also a potter who works in her home pottery studio.
