Our Philosophy

The ARTery Studio is a home for all things creative arts! We are female owned small business, focused on providing a special space in our community for people (especially children!) to explore and express their own creativity! 


Art is important for childhood development, which is why the bulk of our programming is focused on children. Every instructor at our studio has an art background with teaching experience and know-how to bring out the artist in every child.


Our mantra is to let creativity flow through our bodies, and we do that by playing, exploring, creating and GROWING. Our space is super cool for kids, but it is pretty awesome for adults, too. Come create something you never thought you could!

Our Story

Founded by Dr. Karen Walker in 2017, the name of the space is inspired by the arteries of the human body which carry blood. Creativity flows through people and is essential, like blood. We hope that the ARTery will continue to be an inspiring place for people of all ages to come together and create!

The ARTery was purchased in June 2020 by Medford resident, Marisa Corry.  Marisa is a mother, musician, certified K-12 music teacher, and visual art enthusiast! 


We are forever grateful to Dr. Karen Walker and Miss Shiya Stone for founding and growing the ARTery business from 2017-2020.
