where children get inspired

Ivy Place Studios is a small, semi-private oasis for children to learn the fundamentals of art making, challenge their motor skills and nuture their creativity.

Named after the original street that pre-dates 6th Avenue NW – Ivy Place – is a quiet residential neighborhood. The 850sq ft studio space is bathed in natural Northern light from the 16ft high transom windows. The large slider doors look out to a lush garden setting, with numerous flowers, plants and trees.  With concrete floors, large work space, easels, drying racks and plenty of art materials, Ivy Place Studios is the perfect place for children to become inspired.
