White Building Studio #7
I have experience teaching all ages including children, adults and seniors. I realize that everyone learns differently, and I adapt my teaching style to fit the needs of my students. I am a classically trained in piano and music theory. I believe that while understanding the fundamentals is important to develop strong playing skills, I also know how important it is to have fun and play the music my students enjoy!
Acrylic & Mixed Media
Green Building Studio #7
Kostar (Brian Kostar) is a self taught artist who creates what he calls “Art for the beautifully weird”….a mash up of familiar imagery mixed with puns, pop culture, word play, and often incorporating FL wildlife into these pieces when possible. Sustainability is also an important feature in his works, always upcycling frames & repurposing materials into something new is a common theme throughout. Over the last year, Kostar has been thriving in the St. Petersburg art community, showing at gallleries, magazine & live tv interviews & even making it into several retail locations with his prints, stickers & original art. You can catch Kostar live painting consistently in his studio Wed-Sat and all over the Bay Area at events.
