LET’S GET MESSY!
Every person is born an artist. Creative intuition and incredible instincts to problem solve and efficiently navigate the world are a child’s survival. At artNest Delray, we embrace these instincts and give children limitless possibilities to express themselves.
Our goal is for children to never deny their creative mind, to explore it even further and continue to give the world the best version of themselves.
ArtNest Delray is a nurturing, non-competitive, non-judgmental environment where class size is limited so each student receives individual attention. Our age appropriate classes for “grown-up and me” and independent kids age two to preteen focus on the basics of visual arts and challenge inventiveness, problem solving and imagination. We offer a varied arts program including painting, drawing, collaging, book making, photography, jewelry making, fashion and more.
STEPHANIE SCIANNA PITTS
Art and music were an everyday part of Stephanie’s life growing up. She graduated college with a degree in Fine Arts with an emphasis on painting and photography. Soon after, she acquired her teaching certification and taught Art Education at a Miami, FL Elementary School. Education became her passion. After 6 years, she moved back to NYC to work for The Princeton Review, overseeing multiple afterschool programs.
Stephanie then moved on to School of Rock where she was able to couple her experience and love of education with her passion for the Arts. As Director of Franchise Operations, Stephanie assisted franchisees with successful business practices, implementation of curriculum and had a hand in ensuring that over 20,000 kids around the world learned “how to rock on stage and in life”.
Stephanie currently resides in Delray Beach, FL with her husband and two little boys. She has consulted with various educational non-profits in the area and now presents you with artNest Delray. Bringing together her passion for all art forms and inspiring the artist in others, she hopes to ignite the creative souls of the children in the community.
