At a time when many schools around the country are forced to cut back on art programs, Abrakadoodle has emerged to fill the empty creative space left behind. The studio began in 2002, when founders Mary Rogers and Rosemarie Hartnett set out to unify proven educational methods with kid-friendly art instruction. By opening Abrakadoodle, the duo wanted youngsters to experience one of the most rewarding aspects of art: having fun.
Today, Mary and Rosemarie’s vision has developed to include mobile programs that expand imaginations across the United States, as well as studios stationed throughout the world. With guidance from Abrakadoodle’s certified teachers, students aged 20 months to 12 years practice various means of self-expression during painting, drawing, sculpting, and design classes. While developing new skills and keeping the stain-remover industry in business, pintsize Picassos explore their own talents and learn about professional artists. Abrakadoodle keeps all of its class sizes small and caters to kids of any skill level.
