ArtBeat: The Creativity Store will open its second location in the Bay State this Saturday, June 16 in Franklin. “ARTBEAT The Creativity Store is a place where inspiration and creativity intersect,” says owner Jan Whitted. “For over 11 years we have enriched family experiences around the arts in Arlington and now we offer the same opportunity to parents in the southern and MetroWest areas. Here in rooms awash in lively color you’ll find art supplies, handmade gifts, toys and project kits for children and adults as well as inspirational and how-to books that will inspire people to think creatively about their lives.”
“At ARTBEAT, we will show you how to structure fun activities and create family memories,” says Andrai Whitted, a resident of Bellingham and father of three young children. “We want families to think of us as a unique family resource where we make it easy for young and old alike to create. By the end of an art studio visit, everyone will have a treasure to take home or to give as a gift.”
Located at the corner of Summer Street and Route 140, the walk-in art studio will offer a featured art project for children 8 and older (younger if accompanied by an adult) every Saturday. ARTBEAT will be open for children and adult parties and can accommodate private parties of up to 15.
