Fariba Sasson is the founder of Color Bundles. She is a creative artist who loves to teach. One can attribute Fariba’s unique and special art creations to her creativity and experience. Over seven years, she shared and taught her art techniques at local schools as a volunteer.
She brings this teaching experience to her art classes at Color Bundles. She isn’t just a painter, but also a floral designer, a jewelry maker, and a clay sculptor. For the multidisciplinary artist and owner of Clay Bundles, mixing media is what it’s all about. This approach helps her and others discover designs they might not otherwise have created, such as clay art adhered to an acrylic painting or colorful clay mosaics.
She and her instructors teach this approach during hands-on classes, step by step. Both techniques are very interesting and easy to work with. It gives everyone, at any age the opportunity to create beautiful and quality art pieces to be proud of and enjoy.
They also host parties for corporate team building events, kids’ birthdays, private painting events and Family art workshops where participants can unearth their artistic skills in a supportive environment. She strongly believes that art helps the development of children and others will relax and enjoy its therapeutic benefits.
