Product Description

Artist: Stephenie Hamen

Artist Profile: My name is Stephenie Purl Hamen. My art is featured on my website, and seen on my instagram page @stephenie_purl_hamen. I have raised two boys in Sun Prairie.  We often went into Madison when they were little to the children’s museum there and in other cities as well.  They are amazing hands-on learning centers and places for children and parents to socialize.  I feel it can be not only a gathering place for parents, but a draw to people from outside of SP as well.

Having raised my children here, it is now home.  We moved when my sons were 3 and 4.  They are now 14 and 16.  We have loved watching them become active in their school and beyond with sports, band, and other activities.  We have made lifelong friends here and love this city. I became an artist here.  I want to give back to a city that has blessed us so much.

Young children can experiment and create and express themselves through art.  It can be a way of sharing ideas and concepts that they are wrestling with.  They can also learn new ways to process and see their world through shapes, colors, and mediums. This foundation can set them up for a lifetime of hand-on creativity and teaches them that creativity and self-expression is not only okay, but encouraged.  Art can shape a movement, comment on the current state of our world, bring people together, and force tough conversations. They can learn about our history and the history of various eras and cultures through a variety of art forms from our past. From music to dance to craft to art, we need to encourage the next generation to use their voices in unique and artistic ways in order to mark where we are in time and to move us forward to the next level, to where we should be.
