Hello! I'm Natalie Bugarski,
owner of and sole teacher at Sunset Studio.
I have an extensive background in working in the arts, with children, and in education. I have two degrees: a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Painting from East Tennessee State University and a Master of Arts in Education from Union University. I am a licensed teacher and am in my third year of teaching middle school art. I have also enjoyed careers as a Children's Librarian, as a nanny in New York City, and as a commissioned artist many times over. In 2021, after an array of interesting jobs having prepared me to open my own business, I decided the time was right to launch Sunset Studio.
The idea of operating a children's art studio came to me after I observed a dearth of local extracurricular art education opportunities. I knew just the solution— and now, I can contribute to the fulfillment of this need in the community while also utilizing my strengths and honoring my interests. I am ecstatic to be making art with middle-grade artists and adults and teaching the power of imagination and creativity, where I believe my niche truly lies.
