Art at Hooper Studios
encompasses working studios, art school as well as a Gallery and is located in the Kennebecasis Valley in Hampton, New Brunswick. From April to December, Hooper Studios offers classes and workshops in visual arts and crafts, for adults, teens and children. Children’s programs are designed to provide young people, ages 5 through 14, with an opportunity for creative exploration and experience in a non-competitive, friendly atmosphere. The school offers intensive studio-based workshops in a variety of fine art and craft media including clay, paint, metals, paper, printmaking, woodworking and more. Programs range from evening classes, one day workshops to one-week sessions and anyone may participate, from beginners to advanced professionals.
Hooper Studios is hosting a free session of an intro to Eden Energy Medicine at the KV Public Library, Saturday morning, April 18, 9:30 am to 12, Information sharing of Donna Eden’s work. All welcome with Sue and Tandi Hooper. Energy Medicine shows you how to understand and work with your body’s reservoir of electromagnetic and more subtle energies to increase your vitality, identify and correct energy imbalances that keep you from being your best, and enhance your health and your state of mind. For more than three decades Donna Eden has been teaching people how to work with these energies to reclaim their natural healing capabilities.
Hooper Studios is located in a stunning natural setting and provides a community of support for focused creative energy and work. We are surrounded by forty acres of beautiful woodlands, fields and gardens and just below us the amazingly beautiful Kennebecasis river winds through islands and marshland, a paradise of birds and wildlife.
Workshops and classes take place in a large, sunny studio with good working areas, a small library of art books, and homemade cookies and tea to enjoy. The emphasis of all the instruction is on the process rather then the finished product, and students learn to explore the important connections between art and nature.Read More

We are still in the planning stages for the year ahead but we wanted to share with you what will be happening at Hooper Studios this upcoming season. Although Sue plans to focus on her study of Energy Medicine and painting while Kathy would like to devote much needed time working in her studio, Hooper Studios will be offering classes and workshops in painting, drawing and energy wellness again this year.

The Love series continues with four new paintings by Sue.
The two paintings below for the week of march 9 are both 8” by 8” and the medium is acrylic , gold leaf and graphite on canvas. I do love crows. Both paintings have gold leaf as their “crow speak, their magic language…. They are inspired by a walk down the lower road one day with the river on one side of me, the cliffs above and this big crow walking ahead of me, right down the middle of the dirt road. Because of the light, one side of him was pure light/white and the other side pure black. It was like he was a walking lesson…without dark there is no light and without light there is no dark…this came as an exciting confirmation to me that say “yes” to it all.
. All the Love series are $75. and your purchase is greatly appreciated! All funds raised go to support my study and travel. My Eden Energy Medicine class 5 in Arizona starts in April! Very exciting!
