Talin has been in love with her entire life! Throughout her childhood, she spent all of her free time drawing, painting and creating! She assisted teaching art workshops at neighborhood festivals during high school and college. Her love for the arts evolved after she attended UCLA, where she graduated with a degree in Art History (and a minor in Russian Literature!). She then began teaching her very own art classes at Canoga Park Youth Arts Center. She currently teaches all kinds of different mediums, but especially loves projects that hare inspired by famous artists and anything underwater or outer space! At her day job, Talin also works to help underprivileged families access childcare, at CCRC. On her spare time, she likes to bake, watch movies and play with her best friend Sophie who is a cocker spaniel lab mix. She absolutely loves sharing her passion for art with kids, and is super excited to join the Art Camp staff this summer!
