Boris Kuznetsov

Owner and Art teacher, educator, museum guide.

“-We teach children and adults how to broaden their imagination and creativity in art through a variety of techniques and media. We believe that everyone has a talent that can be nourished and revealed. During our classes, we encourage our students to follow their own creative process, not follow step-by-step instruction. Our goal is to bring more art and joy into the world!”
