The Nurture of Creative Consciousness as the Foundation of Early Education.

By Khahtee V. Turner


We believe that a creatively inspired life is one of the greatest joy and capacity. Learning, growing, and creating together at Studio, we provide stimulating and unique experiences that honor the individual

and nurture the imagination.

VENNI STUDIO offers children and teachers the opportunity to research and expressively experience the vast artistic and cultural offerings of our world. Through a focus on learning about our whole globe, Studio provides a multifaceted program that integrates art, music, yoga, movement, story, mythology, sculpture, architecture, and science into all curricular areas providing a creatively driven process for all participants. Core to Studio’s curriculum is a concentration on compassionate awareness in all activities, play, and expressive endeavors. Venni Studio houses a small group, two to three co-teachers with a maximum of eight to ten children per class. This class structure fosters a rich and dynamic program driven by the children's perceptive insights and negotiated and guided by the co-teachers.

To bring undistracted presence and attention to the parts of our life that we love the most takes practice. Being present in play and in practice is a muscle that we develop through desire, consistency, and solid intention.

To be fully present to a time, to someone, or to an experience strengthens our minds and hearts, and provides holistic balance. Slowing our pace and bringing mindful focus to our family and children should cost us nothing, and replenish us in ways that are invaluable. That’s right – playing is free, and it is our greatest internal asset and long-term investment.

FALL 2020



follows the core philosophy, mission, and approach of Studio Creative Play, offering arts-based learning on a foundation of a loving, nurturing, and stimulating teacher, parent, and child community. With focuses on global environmental and cultural awareness, and social development within the creative group, children and teachers develop and refine compassionate communication. The unique and emergent voice of the newly five-year old child is celebrated in solo and collective projects, as well as field exploration. At Studio, our children’s growth is hinged upon their connection with their own creativity amid their friends, teachers, family, and the world.


Studio believes in the nurture of creative consciousness as a practice that allows each child to have powerful knowledge of and access to their own imagination. We believe in the child's vast depth of perception, voice, and extraordinary facets of language. We believe in the child's inclination to soar when offered a compassionate early co-learning process that supports creative foundations for exploring life and awakening to the great diversity of the world. At Studio, this way is the way that we learn,  grow, and rejoice together!
