Indie Art Studio
Indie Art Studio was named Greenfield Main Street’s Member of the Month for April.
Owner Rachel Holmes opened the studio in November 2017, on the first floor of the Bradley Hall Ballroom & Events Venue at 2 W. Main St. in the heart of downtown.
Combining her artistic nature with an entrepreneurial spirit, she quickly fashioned her retail space into a cute and inviting art studio, where bright colored canvases painted by previous customers line the walls.
Holmes, a talented artist, offers art classes and events for toddlers, children, teens and adults. She also offers private events like birthday parties, fundraisers and team building events, where she walks participants through creating their own unique works of art.
“I've always loved art and had a real talent for it, and I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education. There weren't many art education options in town, and I felt like this would be the perfect way to combine my passions and share art with others,” said Holmes, who serves as a board member for Hancock County Arts. She can sometimes be found on a ladder decorating the windows of the art’s council’s 20 North Gallery, just a couple doors north of her own studio.
As a Greenfield resident who previously worked in the downtown area, she felt the historic downtown commercial district provided a fitting backdrop to her first-ever public art studio. “Since I'd grown to know the location and people well, it felt like a perfect fit for the business I envisioned,” said Holmes.
