Shout out to all those who have had their lives, or the lives of their loved ones impacted by “Ms. Kristi”! You know, “Ms. Kristi” Mezick, of Pure Imagination Studio?... The one and only woman we all love and admire for her dedication, generosity, and creativity…The one who has deeply touched thousands of children’s lives over the past 3 decades…The one who has devoted her being to the enrichment of the lives of others…The one friend we all rely on…The woman who constantly reinvents herself and her business to fit the needs of shifting times…The exceptionally talented, some say gifted, woman of strength and wisdom…?...Yeah her. She needs us. She’s got a new vision and we all should to be honored to be a part of it. Let’s all partner together to put Pure Imagination Studio on the road… literally…with a rolling MOBILE STUDIO!

The deep seated mission of Pure Imagination Studio is paramount at this time when our children need social engagement more than ever. With the strong relationships already established within our community, this classroom on wheels will not only transform the lives of those who join her programs, but it will transform the company and give it the boost it needs to move forward in these shifting times.

It all began with a fantasy concept from a years’ old hand drawn sketch, and a plan to meet the needs around our community in a fresh new way by bringing the fun straight to you with children’s classes, adult workshops, community outreach and special events!

Over the past several months it has blossomed, and out of necessity, has been transformed into an ultra-modern Mobile Studio designed and customized to fit the needs of many of the enrichment classes they offer, from cooking to woodworking to sewing and more.

Your support can transform the way Pure Imagination Studio does business.
