Are you tapping into your creativity enough to benefit you?

Do you get discouraged when your art turns out terribly?

What is an ArtSpa?

ArtSpa is a multi-sensory experience with courses and workshops to activate your creativity using art-based techniques and exercises meant to spark your creativity, bring joy and provide an opportunity for self-care.

An ArtSpa will reconnect you with your creativity. We introduce you to a new concept of what a spa experience is, where you are guided as you actively refresh yourself. This is different than an art lesson and definitely not a paint night experience. It’s a new way of understanding, recovering and developing your own creativity.

Why reconnect with your creativity?

  • Make great art that you feel great about

  • Reconnect with your innate creativity so you can access it more easily

  • Bring more joy and happiness into your life

  • Learn something new*

  • Connect with like-minded people

  • Practicing art-based creativity transfers benefits to your other skills

  • Learn how to overcome self-judgement 


*Build new paths to your happy chemicals by feeding your brain new experiences!!! ​

Who is ArtSpa For?

Everyone would benefit from practicing creative expression. But we see the greatest need to serve people who don't think they are creative, feel that something is missing in their life and are challenged to crank out a stick figure to communicate a message without disappointment, frustration or anger.

Great opportunity to spend time with colleagues as we worked together in the virtual meeting. It was great having designated time to explore using the oil pastels on different paper and plastic surfaces.            ~ Barbara C.

What People Say...

Loved this opportunity to take a break, to create and to connect! It is a literal and metaphorical gift that you can give to yourself and to your friends. Thank you!                      ~ Sandra M.

An enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours! Karen was engaging and prepared with her presentation. Her mindful art activities and examples allowed you to be creative and all the while relaxed. There was a lot of support and encouragement offered with no judgement. Art is a journey and it was great to have this experience as it allowed me to explore and decompress at the same time. Thank you Karen!                    ~ Donna H.

Great session. Good balance of information and creating time. The lead in exercises were fun. I felt energized after the session.                             ~ Lisa N.

I am artist and founder of SavvyArt Market and ArtSpa, Karen Mayer.

I recognized my gift of creativity and art skills early in life, but took an adjacent path in business and marketing, although I always carried and shared the joy of art in my heart and soul. Mid-career I experienced an epiphany, which resulted in me abruptly quitting my sales and marketing career to build SavvyArt Market, an online art gallery with the vision to bring the joy of art to people's homes, matching great people with great art, sharing the health benefits of viewing and buying great art. SavvyArt Market is still a thriving and growing part of my work.


In 2019, I began to notice how the grind of daily life was negatively affecting people around me, worsening from the challenges posed by the COVID pandemic.  I got busy and created ArtSpa, an experience for people using art to reconnect them with their creativity, sharing the joy, fun and benefits of creative expression. The push to do so was confirmed in the form of a message on a Yogi tea bag, "inner peace creates peace in the world." This fired my passion to learn more about creativity. So I dove in head first and consumed research about creativity, volumes of studies and books from experts. I learned a lot about how much your creativity skills or lack of creativity can positively or negatively affect your life, which I am very excited to share with all of you.


At ArtSpa, we sincerely believe your well-being, happiness and success is linked to your creativity skills.  Our mission is to help people develop and reconnect with their creativity, to spread information about its benefits, creating inner peace one person at a time!

ArtSpa workshops, courses and art kits reflect the focus and importance I have placed on self-care and wellness over the past 12 years. We (me and the ArtSpa team) take pride in taking the time to understand your needs on your creativity journey, for individuals, family and friend groups, or company teams and staff. ArtSpa is ready to help you, so don’t delay another day reconnecting with your innate creativity.

What does creativity give us? >

Creativity gives us something to look at, fills a room with an energy and evokes an emotion when consumed, like viewing an artwork, film or dance production. Practicing creativity gives us benefits more than we thought possible. Creativity has been widely researched and documented.
