Now on Arlington Independent Media TV Channel, an episode of In Conversation on Art Education taped at Studio PAUSE on Nov 3!

Hi, I am Sushmita Mazumdar, artist, writer, and educator. I have been writing stories and making them into artist’s books and mixed media work for over 6 years now while teaching workshops and participating in events where I can teach families book making too. You can see my work at www.HandmadeStorybooks.com

But now I have a space of my own—Welcome to StudioPAUSE, my art studio in Arlington, VA, where you can see my work, explore art and stories for yourself, and be part of a community that is creative, diverse, and fun!

I believe that everybody is creative and everyone has stories to tell—we just don’t explore them, or we are shy to share them. All because we don’t have the time and we don’t think anyone cares.

And that’s why we need to PAUSE.

People: We are inspired by everyday People because they are creative and they know a lot

Art: Everyone has Art in them and should get to explore and enjoy it

Understand: Art and Stories help us Understand the people around us and the things they love

Share: We Share our stories graciously and take graciously as we learn about each other

Explore: What will we discover about ourselves, as we Explore our senses and our emotions?
