Susan M. Bagrationoff is the owner and art educator of Artsy Fartsy Art Lessons. Teaching art has been Susan's dream since she was about 7 years of age. Upon moving to Kent, WA, Susan's long time dream of opening up an art education studio became a reality. In addition to instructing kids and adults in art at her studio, Susan often works with local emerging and students artist to exhibit their work in the studio.
Susan graduated with her Bachelors in Fine Arts in 2002 from Florida International University with her major in painting and two minors; one in art history and education. Susan became an early elementary teacher in Miami, Florida in 2005, teaching first grade and kindergarten. Susan decided to move to the west coast of Florida in 2012 to Ft. Myers where she taught first grade for three years. In 2013, while in Fort Myers, Artsy Fartsy Art Lessons was born. Susan taught multiple classes on the weekends privately in her own home. In 2015, Susan became an art teacher at a public middle school in Fort Myers. However, a desire to explore a new city and reconnect with old friends brought Susan to Kent, WA in June 2016.
Susan is a professional artist as well as a teaching artist. Her professional body of work can be experienced when visiting the studio or go to www.susanmbagrationoff.artfolio.com to see all of Susan's artwork and upcoming art show announcements.
