About OUR STUDIO
Happy Hearts Art Studio was created with the vision to serve our community and encourage creative expression for artists of all ages and abilities. We offer paint your own pottery, art clubs for kids, workshops for all ages, camps, parties, and more!
We are an independent, family run business, pursuing our dream of opening a studio where friends and family can gather together and make memories.
Lisa Hellman | Owner
My name is Lisa Hellman, and I am thrilled to share my love of art and teaching! I have a Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in fine arts and graphic design, from the State University of New York at New Paltz. In 2005 I became a certified teacher in the state of Florida. In 2019, I earned my gifted endorsement. Over the years I have worked with many different types of learners including English Language Learners (ELL), Exceptional Students (ESE) and Gifted Students. Working with a wonderful variety of students with different learning styles has taught me how to differentiate for all people.
I am also a wife and mom, to my supportive husband and three amazing kids! Over the years we have watched our kids grow and learn in so many ways. Those experiences led me to teaching as my second career. Prior to entering the teaching profession and starting a family, I worked in sales and creative industries in New York City. I am thrilled to be able to share my excitement for art and creativity through different modes of creative expression in our studio.
I truly believe we all have an inner artist and with the right opportunities, we can all express ourselves in creative ways! Art makes my heart happy!
