The Imagination Studio

ASHLEY GREEN is the Creative Director & Owner of The Imagination Studio. A child of the arts she fell in love with painting, drawing and creating at an early age. She is endlessly inspired by the imagination and creativity of children and ignites that childhood creativity in adults. Ashley studied Studio Art at the University of Guelph and went on to teach children of all ages across Canada. She has taught in over twenty-seven Indigenous communities spanning from British Columbia to Nunavut. Returning to The Blue Mountains as young mother she saw a need for an art space where children can create, explore and express themselves authentically. Ashley believes all people big + small truly want to be seen, heard and valued without judgement. She dreamed up The Imagination Studio and is committed to providing her community with unique opportunities and an inviting space for imaginations to flourish.
