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.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!

Hi! I am the owner and one of the instructors at the studio. Having a degree in art helps but working with  kids and teaching them art for the past 12 years really has been my main education. I believe that there are no untalented children and with some help and encouragement every child becomes a great artist!
