Fariba Bashar is an experienced professional artist with nearly 30 yearsexperience teaching children and adults how to draw and paint. Fariba discovered her passion for art when she was only 11 years old, and hopes to help current and future students discover a passion for it as well. We recently sat down with Fariba to learn more about her business:
Question & Answer1. Tell me a little bit about your business? What makes it unique?
I teach art lessons to children and adults. What makes my classes unique is that students with no experience in drawing and painting can learn important skill sets and techniques to create and design beautiful portraits. Those with prior experience can come to further advance their skills and learn new and different mentions of art in a fun and relaxing environment.
2. How did you get involved in your industry?
I have been passionate about art since I was 11 years old. I began taking lessons with an incredible and patient artist who guided me and inspired me to pursue a life of art on my own.
3. How did you start the business?
When my skills further developed, after taking countless lessons and spending hours on end practicing behind my canvas, I decided to develop my own classes in hope to inspire other students to take on this talent, as my teacher had done for me. Since then, I have been teaching art lessons for 28 years.
4. Why did you choose to locate in Lake Forest?
I chose to locate my business in Lake Forest due to its close proximity and convenience to many major cities around the area.
5. Any special promotions we can advertise?
For new customers: 15% OFF your first month’s registration fee. Besides just art lessons, I also offer painting parties and face painting for special events and also, I accept commission portrait orders (self-portraits, group and pet portraits).
