Our Story

Margot Kimball, founder of Village Art Room

Margot Kimball

I have been an active member of the art community in and around West Concord for over 20 years, making, displaying and selling art, as well as teaching, and organizing public art projects. In 2008 to 2010, I formed the Concord Youth Art League, an after school program that held classes for children, with the assistance of parents. From 2010 to to 2013, I lived in Madrid Spain where I came to enjoy working in sociable art studio settings. I believe that community is formed and the ecology is improved when we share resources. So VILLAGE ART ROOM has begun in the studio that I have had for nearly 20 years, with the excess of art supplies and equipment that I amassed over my lifetime. I welcome others to join me in this adventure.

Kim’s experience as a special ed teacher, mother of four, dedicated volunteer at Concord Art, and avid consumer of art classes prepared her beautifully to take on the organizational challenges of VILLAGE ART ROOM as well as teach classes and run art events. Among other things, Kim teaches a weekly class for Minuteman Arc for Human Services.
