Meet The Team
Owner / Teacher
Hi! My name is Emily Hammerstad. My students call me Miss Emily. I have run this studio for 6 years now! I love working with children. I decided to open up Unicorns sprinkles and ART (US and ART) so I could continue working with children and teach them something I am passionate about. Multiple studies have shown the importance of being creative. It has a unique effect on our physical and emotional bodies. I believe the entrepreneurs of tomorrow are the creative minds of today. Some of my other favorites include: Visiting Disneyland, reading and writing books, and anything involving glitter!

- Adult Intro to the Arts
I grew up in Spokane, WA, and was always creating. I Received my B.A. in Art Ed from BYU which gave me the amazing opportunity to try my hand at stained glass, watercolor, oil, ceramics, plaster, and batik. I even made my husband's wedding ring using the lost wax method! While raising five children, I was the Art Specialist at Mountain Green Elementary and taught community adult painting classes. Since moving to Pleasant Grove 5 years ago, I opened an online art store, have illustrated several books, and was thrilled to see my artwork "Encircled in His Arms" receive the Visitor’s Choice Award in the LDS International Art Competition. I am a teacher at heart and am so excited once again to be helping others develop their own creative passions!
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Unicorns Sprinkles and ART was such a wonderful experience for our boy. He loved being able to create and express himself. The end Gala is put together in such a wonderful way and celebrates their great art and learning. I would highly recommend for any kid.
We love the art classes at US and Art! My daughter has loved this creative outlet, and it has been such a positive experience for her. She has an amazing teacher, and we have been thrilled with our experience here!
My two girls (ages 4 and 6) love Miss Emily’s art class! They are bouncing with excitement every week when I pick them up and can’t wait to tell me what they did in class. It’s been such a good experience and ignited the artistic fire in them
We LOVE Unicorns Sprinkles and ART!! My daughter has been attending art classes here for over a year and every time a new semester starts she begs to do it again. Emily puts so much time and energy into these classes and her students. She works hard to build each student up and help them feel confident in their own abilities. She also hosted a painting party for my daughter’s 10th birthday at our house. It was the best party ever! All the kids loved it! I can’t say enough good things about Emily and Unicorns Sprinkles and ART. You should definitely sign your child up for classes. They will love it!

-- Intro to art Adults
Jenna Wilson is studying studio art at BYU. Her work deals with the conversation between two different parts of herself as she seeks to reconcile her past with her present and future. Iteration is important to her work as she explores the way identity warps and distorts memories over time. Most of her works are mixed media drawings, however recently she has been exploring printmaking and sculpture as art making practices.

Hello, my name is Destiny McHugh! I was born in Spokane Washington but raised in Utah. I have been doing art since I could pick up a pencil. My favorite art is animation, surrealism, and manga. I have tried all different forms of media from painting to digital and even clay, but my favorite will always be pencil and paper. I am very passionate about the animation style because my personality is very imaginative and kid-like. My experience with working with kids has been mostly kids with autism, FAS, and juvenile bipolar disorder.

I starting painting and drawing during class in elementary school, through middle school it became my outlet for complicated emotions like depression and anxiety. I believe art is a great way to cope in difficult situations. I also adore children and seeing them explore the world.
