Back to School Means Back to Art

For the next few weeks we will be publishing copies of stories on our business that are seen on

Now that Boulder County schools are back in session, the Helen Parker Art Studio can resume its open hours. Partner owners, Rachel Hanson and Kerry Feiman are forced into semi shut down for the summer due to 4 kids running about. "We can usually work one day a week during the summer. The girls are pretty good but only have so much patience," says Feiman. They use their summer hours away from the studio for throwing around ideas and planning events for the Fall. They also fulfill their Amazon orders and website orders which still keep coming in even with a faltering economy.
The events for this fall are bigger and better than they have ever been. The invitation only Fall launch party for their Milagro Jewelry line is always a much anticipated event. This years party features an exclusive one of a kind line of jewelry. Guests will need to make their choices quickly or they will be gone forever. It is a great social hour with food, drinks, prizes and give-aways. This year also features an exclusive preview of October's Big Art Show. Gathering new exhibiting artists, the show will feature various jewelry artists, potters, fabric artists and home decor art pieces. The show will have twice as many booths as last years. "This year's art show features some very talented new artists and pieces. I can't wait to do my own holiday shopping there," says Hanson.
In addition to the shows the studio will expand its open studio and store hours. They will be open to the public every Tuesday and Friday from 9am-11:30am.
The studio is located at 600 E. Simpson in old town. The studio entrance is through the west gate located on Finch.
