The Art Studio is a small business of Lansing, Illinois, located in a cozy, blue house that was lovingly restored for the sole purpose of creating art. The studio was founded on the mission of providing art to artists of all ages and abilities within our local community & as far as we can travel. Art has the ability to provoke laughter and thought, to challenge and push, to encourage and lift, and most importantly -- to bring people together.


Come create with us -- art is waiting!


Our team is made up of creatives who specialize in different areas of artistic practice -- all with the same goal of providing art to others. 



Nancy opened The Art Studio as a way to share her gift of art. At The Art Studio, she offers a place where people in our community — all ages and abilities — can get together and make art. Nancy holds more than 20 years of teaching experience. She brings a positive and creative spirit to The Art Studio, and she has a gentle, effective way of encouraging and supporting artists. 



Jill recently graduated from DePaul University with a BFA in Art, Media & Design with a concentration in Studio Art and specialty in Drawing, Painting, & Printmaking. She believes art has the ability to challenge your mind with each new idea and should be about the process, not the product. Her passion for bringing creativity to life in both kids & adults led her to joining the Art Studio team back in 2015. 

Julia vale

studio instructor

Julia is currently a student at Indiana University Northwest and is working towards her Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design + Art. With a strong tie to family and friends, she enjoys the sense of community she feels when working at the studio, especially with kids. While she enjoys the physicality of hands-on media, her background extends to digital/graphic works as well. She is grateful that her work as a student and as an artist naturally intersect.
