Overview

Hello. My name is Ruzanna. I am Armenian. I have been living in the United States since I was 12 years old. I have always loved art and my first job was at an art museum when I was 15 years old. I always had a special appreciation towards my teachers. After I got my BA degree in Art Studio/Art History at USC, I continued to get my MAT in Art Education. I am certified to teach K-12 Art in South Carolina and North Carolina. All my hobbies are art related. I also teach other types of art that were not listed here, like collage, printmaking, bookmaking, recycled art, etc. please feel free to contact me about other types if you have other interests. I am looking forward to being your teacher.
