about ⋒

Essem Art Studio, is a creative gathering space located in the Charlestown Commerce Center, founded by Abstract Artist & Creative Strategist, Sophia Moon. As a self-taught artist, Sophia believes that everyone is creative. She opens her studio space to encourage creative play and exploration for all, regardless of age and situation

Most days Sophia can be found in studio making art, helping clients tell their stories, running Art Labs and planning creative gatherings and events with her daughter by her side. Her art is largely gestural and expressive, channeling the energy of different mediums—primarily ink, watercolor, charcoal, acrylic—to express textures, motion, and rhythm. She likens her art to making music on canvas. She is also the Host of CreativeMornings/Boston, a free monthly breakfast lecture series for the vibrant local creative community.

This winter, get out of the cold and into creativity. Register for Art Labs at Essem Art Studio facilitated by artist, creative, and fellow Charlestown mom, Sophia Moon.

Art Labs are loosely facilitated activities that permit exploration and creative play so you can develop confidence in creating art and self expression through various mediums—acrylic paints, watercolors, color pencils, modeling clay, and/or miscellaneous art/craft supplies. Art Labs can be modified for all ages and are also meant to be interactive, so come alone and get into the zone or bring your little one(s) and come ready to have fun creating alongside each other.

All materials are provided. All children must be accompanied and remain under the care of a parent/guardian at all times. If you would like to book a private party/event, please email us at hello@essemartstudio.com
