Q&A with Mahssa Hashemi, Owner and Director
Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
We have only been open for three months, and I have already seen the some of our little artists 20–30 times, and they have grown so much as creative artists. With art being taken out of schools more and more, children feel a loss in their creative outlet. Young at Art creates a studio where artists can use their imagination and truly be involved in a hands-on experience.
Art is also a great way for our artists to show self-expression and to have it created in an art piece that they can take home. As an art advocate, I love seeing how much art and our studio have created a community of artists that are constantly exploring and expressing themselves with the world of art.
What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars?
Have your little artist in clothes that you don't mind them getting a little paint on. All of our paint is washable and nontoxic, but it's always nice when you don't have to worry at all how their clothes will look once they leave the studio.
When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?
In 2005, I received my BA in art and performance, and in 2010, I received my master of arts in teaching from Willamette University. I have always had a passion for the arts and enriching children's lives.Thankfully, I now have a career that incorporates both. I'm very excited in sharing all that I have learned in the world of art with our community of little artists.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Our studio is constantly changing and bringing in new artistic activities. Being innovative and ever-changing is one thing that our customers really appreciate. It helps to continue to expand our artists creativity.
