If you will need disability-related accommodations to participate, please email Olivia Bunting at owarren@illinois.edu.

About the instructor

Anyuta Gusakova was born and raised in Russia and was classically trained at art schools in Moscow. She now lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, where she owns her own studio, Anyuta’s Toy Sculptures & Whimsical Fine Art.

Gusakova strives to bring childlike joy out of people with her art, which ranges from small ceramic figurines to large fiberglass unicorns.

“I make sculpture and drawings that give people joy. I want to connect with their inner child. I want to touch people to the point where they know how to be happy unconditionally. Like children, we don’t need a reason to be happy and to feel joy.”
