Our mission is to:

  • Inspire students to develop their creativity in order to achieve physical, mental, and spiritual health and balance.

  • Provide opportunities for people to think outside the box, learn new skills, and live a more intentional and sustainable lifestyle.

  • Strengthen communities by empowering one person at a time.

  • Work with the principles and functions found in nature to provide holistic educational experiences for our students.



We offer classes, workshops, and retreats to inspire and connect people through creative endeavors in our urban studio in Seattle, WA.  


Small, individualized classes focus on creativity, mindfulness, and healthy lifestyles.  Topics include art, design, permaculture, gardening, urban homesteading, and subjects that allow students to grow as creative, balanced, and holistic beings.


We provide the opportunity to change perceived notions of creativity and what it means to be an artist, rekindle an awareness of the surrounding environment, and forge connections within the community.


It’s never too late to create!

In addition to education, we offer a few custom art & design services.



Creativity Director


With 15+ years of experience in the field of art education, Austin now turns his attention to a bigger picture: the relationship between creativity and well-being.  Creativity is a defining characteristic of who we are.  When we fall out of touch with our own creativity, we become unbalanced and unhealthy.  Austin is dedicated to exploring methodologies and modalities of creativity and helping others strengthen their personal creative practice.
