The concept of My Art House Studio was born during the Covid-19 pandemic, during a time where kids at home needed a creative outlet to enhance their understanding of the world around them. We have evolved our teaching lens into on-site collaborative learning for enrichment and after-school programs for Chicago youth pre-k – 5th grade.
The owner and lead instructor, Morgan, has over 15 years of experience teaching kids art, dance, circus arts, improv, and theatre with a BA in Dance from Columbia College. Her acquired skills and involvement with diverse groups of children have allowed her to adapt quickly and thoughtfully to all situations and classroom types.
It is essential to get to know our schools, teachers, administrators and students on a deeper level because we design our interactive classes based on student needs, current school curriculum and academic development goals for each individual school. We are passionate about using dance and integrative art to stimulate their expansive imaginations, enhance physical and academic capabilities and showcase their intrinsic potential.
At My Art House Studio, we believe that expressing yourself through art and dance not only brings joy, but also instills a sense of community, and teaches valuable life skills; all of which are important during difficult times. It is our goal to empower young people to engage fearlessly in new things, and immerse themselves in the artistic creative process to awaken their true potential.
Morgan is a Florida native living in Chicago, IL with a BA in Dance from Columbia College Chicago and is a graduate of The Second City Conservatory. She has over 14 years experience teaching a wide variety of performing and creative arts to artists ages 2 to adult. Morgan didn’t begin dancing until the age of 14 due to a lack of funds and art exposure. Dance allowed her to be a first-generation college graduate despite many monetary and economic barriers. Traditional dance studio classes were expensive and, at times, inaccessible. Morgan constantly worked multiple odd jobs, relied heavily on the kindness of mentors, and acknowledges that her privileges helped keep dance in her life. It is with these experiences that Morgan has now dedicated herself to providing low cost, easy access classes to young artists across the country. My Art House Studio is just the beginning of her advocacy for arts education.
