Front Room Studio is committed to developing life skills in children and adults by offering a hands-on approach in everything we do. In our cooking classes we create a safe and enjoyable environment where children are empowered to take personal responsibility. While learning basic cooking skills, we broaden children's awareness of the whole food cycle: where does our food come from? how does it grow? what does it taste like when it's raw, cooked and spiced? What foods are traditional in other countries and why? We hope to sow seeds for a rich edible education that will influence their knowledge and values for the rest of their life.
In our art classes, we ask the question of ‘what if...’. The goal is to foster personal expression and exploration as way of discovering magic - the magic of beauty, of making something out of nothing and the magic of representation. Human beings have a longing to create. It is a basic instinct of ours to want to make. Just look at all the museums around the world filled with amazing objects and paintings. Humans have been doing this a long time! Front Room Studio provides a supportive environment, filled with materials and light. There is a big table where adults and children can enjoy being in a community of makers at work.
Humans are naturally curious about the world. At Front Room Studio we foster a love for food, conversation and making.
Front Room Studio is the home studio of Odessa Spore, artist and pastry chef. Odessa is a graduate of the Nova Scotia Collage of Art & Design, where she studied painting, drawing, and film. In 2017 She returned to Halifax, Nova Scotia from the San Francisco Bay area where she volunteered at the Edible School Yard Project, teaching middle schoolers to garden and cook their own food. She also completed her training in the Sogetsu school of Japanese flower arranging. Odessa is excited to work with adults and children sharing and fostering creativity, a love for food and the enjoyment of being in community.
