Welcome to Children's Art

Instructor: Akasya Crosier

Instructor: Ms. Akasya

Akasya Crosier is a mixed media artist, graphic designer, and marketer living on the West Side of Buffalo. After graduating from the University at Buffalo with degrees in Communication and Studio Art (with a minor in Education), she has worked primarily in marketing of nonprofits. When she is not instructing the Children's Art Class or posting to the Locust Street Art social media account, she runs a small business featuring retail items of her digital illustrations. You can find her work in a dozen stores across Western New York.


"As an artist, I am most interested in patterns and color, often painting saturated landscapes using scrap fabric and acrylic paint; my pieces are inspired by recent travels, walks in Upstate/Western NY, and my daily life. My favorite part of teaching is encouraging students to follow their passion, and seeing their creative minds at work."
