Today I want to introduce Scribble Art Studio. It's a studio for kids and adults. I think it's the all time best place for kids to build their creativity. It's such a wonderful business for the Savannah community to have. They have adult painting parties, mini art parties, summer camp for kids, they are starting a kids club, have after school programs, and many more exciting things to announce soon! All of the artists that teach classes and are involved with Scribble are extremely talented, knowledgeable, friendly, and best of all know how to work with children so that they learn and also have a fun experience.

I love this adorable Fairy House Kit that Scribble Art Studio offers! What a great idea to either spend a creative afternoon with your child or drop them off for quality art time while you run a few errands. They also have Car Kits, Embroidery Kits, Clay Kits, and Painting Kits available for kids! All you have to do is call to ask about the available kits and reserve one for your child. They always have new and exciting classes and events happening so be sure to join their mailing list and check out their website to keep updated. I love that you get a free coloring book page in their mailing list, seriously that is the best!

Children's Aprons

Studio UpdatesAbby Leigh EckerComment

I've been busy working in my studio and quiet on some of my social media accounts lately but I'm back now and ready to blog! I have so many fun new things I'm super excited to share about. Today I want to talk about my Children's Aprons! Art smock, play apron, tool duds, whatever you choose to call them, they are adorable! These are durable vibrant aprons for children to wear while playing, helping a parent in the kitchen, during an art session, or just for fun. They have ties at the neck and waist so they can be easily adjusted and two lined pockets at the waist.

Currently, I have nautical, art, and floral themed aprons, as well as a few odds and ends (turtles, boy scout/camping, retro cassette tapes). I've had an overwhelming positive response to these aprons, boy or girl, your child will love wearing one. I've even had a few requests for adult aprons to match these darling small ones. I always take custom orders when I can in my etsy shop, so don't be shy about asking questions or requesting something special.

That's it for this Monday update and now it's time to for me to get back to work in my studio.

Enjoy and Happy Monday! These aprons are available to purchase in Savannah, GA at Scribble Art Studio and in my Etsy Shop. They will be available shortly in other local stores & more fun prints are coming soon!! 

Studio Update: Global Talent Search

Studio UpdatesAbby Leigh Ecker2 Comments

Today I wanted to share a top secret project that I've been working on. Ok well, it's not that top secret but it's for a competition so I cannot share the finished piece yet. I'll only be sharing a snippet of my work and inspiration used for the project. I'm participating in Lilla Rogers' Global Talent Search this year. I found out about the competition through social media and thought it would be something fun to get my creative juices flowing and end the summer with. There is something exciting about being part of a collective project and being able to connect with other artists through social media. I decided from the start, that although it would be awesome to be selected to move to round 2 & 3, no matter what I would still have fun and just be happy to be a part of this global talent search. 

The first assignment was to create an individual piece of wall art with the theme of little terrariums. It was a fun project to work on and luckily I have a nice selection of terrarium style plants around the house that I used for research and inspiration. The project was left open to our choice of style, media and interpretation of the theme. We were able to choose from children or adults as a demographic and had to include at least one word in the piece. I decided to use the combination of watercolor paint and hand embroidery as my media for this project while sticking with my detail orientated style of line drawing. It was easy for me to choose a saying instead of just one word. I've always felt that the little things in life make the extra difference to brighten your day so I chose the phrase, "delight in the little things". I think the saying goes well with the theme of little terrariums, how they are fun to create and compliment the spaces they adorn.

I'm excited to see all the work that was submitted once the round 1 gallery is published and I'll also be sharing my entire work of art once it's published on the Lilla Rogers site. Good luck to everyone that is participating!

Enjoy & Happy Monday!
