Inspired by the need for young children to get messy and creative, the ARTery Studio was founded as an exploratory & cooperative art space that encourages children to focus on process instead of outcome.
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 the 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!
Founded by Dr. Karen Walker in 2017, the name of the space is inspired by the arteries of the human body which carry blood. Like blood, creativity flows through people. 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 residents, Marisa and Brian Corry. Together, Brian and Marisa bring a passion for all things creative. It is their goal to provide a unique and magical space in our community for children to express their inner creativity.
