Meet Carol Schieszer

Today we’d like to introduce you to Carol Schieszer. 

Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
I started teaching a few art classes in my art studio while working at the Nelson Atkins Museum. I really never had a business plan – it just grew into a business… and here I am 25 yrs. later- and loving more than ever. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
No struggles… I really don’t even think of it as a job- it’s just something I love doing! Bad days are few and far between! 

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
I think I’ve been an artist at heart all of my life … working at the Nelson is when I found my passion- and that is working with children in a creative environment. I loved learning about the collection at the Nelson- and I try incorporate that as much I can in my art studio. Art in the Attic is an open studio 

I give instructions with a lot of options. 

How can people work with you, collaborate with you, or support you?
I donate classes and birthday parties to all the public and private schools in the area. I collaborate with Tina Blanck – we teach preschool classes together -we have different and I love what she brings to the studio!
