Chalkboard & Canvas is here to help grow the next great generation of creative thinkers and tinkerers, one little human at a time.
Sherry is a teacher, and she married Zack—an artist. They share a love for children and education, and one day they decided they should team up to dream up some amazing stuff for kids. They call themselves Chalkboard & Canvas.
Together, they make beautiful, engaging products for the home and the classroom in order to instill a life-long love of learning and creativity in little humans of all ages.
