“-Because art is just as important as reading, writing and math!”

 

 ABOUT US

We are a free kids art program for kids ages 0-17.  We are fully self funded.   We want all children to be able to express themselves, because of this, we are free and web based.   We do attend non-mandatory live events in Portland Oregon, USA.

 

OUR STORY

 

The Studio was created by Gunnar and Harlee Mickelberry in the fall of 2011.  It began as an Etsy shop and as a way for the kids to make money to help the homeless.  They were interviewed by Koin TV in April of 2012.   As KNS began to receive more commission requests, a close friend,  Emma Lund joined the “studio”.  The kids attended their first CraftyWonderland event at the  Oregon Convention Center  in the Spring of 2012.  It was hugely successful.    From there KNS began to grow up.   We now mean a little something different, and like our artists, continue to grow and grow.
WHY JOIN / SUPPORT KNS?
