our story:

We have started the studio back in 2001 at my parent's basement, my mom was in charge of the studio and I was an awkward teenager. Soon I've started teaching and helping my mom with younger kids and during the summers. We only had a handful of students who were mostly Russian children that have just moved to USA and didn't speak English. 

Since then we have changed few locations and were very lucky to find our current Gunbarrel space that has natural lighting, tall ceilings and tons of space.The number of students has also grown and we are now a big family of artists, we love and adore each one of them!!! We have some students that have been with us for all these years which we are very proud of!
