Karen Hogan, who has owned an  art studio in Westhampton for five years, said parents from further east on the South Fork would bring their children all the way to her studio because there wasn't much for kids to do closer to home. Seeing a need, Hogan opened a Studio Art location in Water Mill, just off Montauk Highway in the center of the small hamlet, wedged between Southampton Village and Bridgehampton.
