Brynn & Jen
Hi I am Jen. I am a co-owner of the Basement Community Art Studio. I started this studio with my dear friend Brynn in 2015. Brynn owns 2 other businesses here in TN Lox Salon and White Buffalo Children's Boutique. I am the one you are likely to talk to when you call or stop by so I just wanted to introduce myself to you. I am also the one maintaining the blog so If you choose to follow along you will be hearing from me a lot, lol.

A bit about me:

  • I have my degree in Textiles Merchandising and Design with minors in Art and in Human Sciences.
  • I am fascinated by and have studied the Montessori Method of early childhood education.
  • I  love to teach art and I am influenced by the TAB philosophy (Teaching for Artistic Behavior) which relies on artistic choice and regards students as artists. Read more about how TAB has inspired me here. I am also very interested in the Reggio Emilia approach, especially as it applies to art. Reggio also honors each child as an artist. They tend to focus on sensory based art experiences for young children. They use a lot of nature and other nontraditional art materials in their process based art explorations.
  • I believe that everyone no matter their age or skill level is capable of creativity & art. I also believe that everyone can benefit from allowing creative play into their lives! There are lots of studies proving the many benefits of art and creativity
  • It is my goal, through the studio and the blog, to spark your creativity and to help you find ways to allow more creative play into you life, so please follow along by signing up for our email list (Click on the "Stay Informed" tab above).
