Why Small Businesses Matter
Shop small, do big things for your community
Why Small Businesses Matter puts a spotlight on the local merchants who donate their time, talent, goods, and services for the betterment of our community. The shop local movement spreads virally as local businesses who are “tagged” have the opportunity to share their story!
You're IT Rosa Colon!
Four questions with Artist and Art Instructor, Rosa Colon.
Why did you start your business?
I started to teach art classes for children and adults 10 years ago with the goal to make art fun and easy to learn for students of all experience levels. I also love teaching, it is really one of my passions as an artist to also be able to teach others how to be better artists.
What is your best-selling product/service?
My watercolor class is the most popular art class with students of all levels, it is a fun method to learn due to the ease of use of watercolors.
How many local businesses do you use to support your business (products and services) and can you name them?
I purchase my art supplies from Jerry's Artarama and Michael's. I also recommend my students purchase quality materials in those stores.
Have you "reimagined" your small business?
I started to teach private art lessons in students' homes for their comfort and COVID safety. I also have continued teaching in my studio and at the Stamford Adult and Continuing Education.
