Meet the Owner of Out of the Box Studio, Stephanie Krauss Verdun
What is your business? Out
of the Box Studio is both my personal studio as an artist, as well as a
space where children and adults can come explore and create with a
variety of art materials and techniques. It’s a space to “let go of the
rules” during a class or workshop and to have fun making art your way.
What made you decide to start your business? Creating art is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. I was looking for a flexible schedule where I could teach, have time for making my own works, and something that would allow me to stay home with my children, especially when they were younger. I love working with kids. I learn the most about what it means to be creative from them. They are naturals, especially when it comes to imagination and creativity.
What do you love most about Marblehead? I love Marblehead for its charm, “quaint” appeal, and of course, being by the ocean. I’m intrigued by its history and feel the most relaxed by the water. Every time I take a walk or a drive, I see something new (or old!) that I’ve haven’t seen before. I love the artist community and the support from the town. I have made some wonderful friends here who feel like family. There are lovely local shops and delicious restaurants. The list goes on….
What hobbies/interests do you have? I enjoy going for walks, practicing yoga, photography, knitting, painting, ceramics, sewing, animals, music and graphic design.
