Small Hands Big Art Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Small Hands Big Art has over 14 years of experience running a successful, brick-and-mortar children's art studio that has grown steadily and organically.

We've built a solid reputation and model around a children's fine-art inspired curriculum infused with a modern and contemporary spin - and we're excited to share it with you!

Our first independently owned & operated franchise location opened in Fort Mill, SC in December, 2018. This is a photo of our proud Fort Mill studio owners, the Lumpkins! We couldn't be more proud of the way they've represented our brand. After only one short but fabulous year under their belt, Covid came out of nowhere! They never missed a beat, and navigated the pandemic years with a determination and stamina that showed their passion and drive to succeed, and their commitment to our mission and values.

Are you a creative entrepreneur with hustle? Do you dream of making a difference in children's lives through the amazing power of art? Owning your own Small Hands Big Art studio may be the perfect opportunity!
