Amanda Chakravarty (Creative Director of Art Cube Studios) has come home after a long sojourn
out west. After receiving a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Drawing and an Art Endorsed Teaching Credential
from Arizona State University, she pursued a professional artist and teaching career in art and
moved to Orange County, California. There she
began a steady run of numerous exhibitions and sales of her work around the nation while
teaching art to junior high students in the public school system. As a
working professional artist and art instructor, she believes that
anything can be achieved through belief and encouragement. Amanda has been credentialed to teach grades k-12 in Arizona, California and is current in Illinois.
Amanda teaches mainly drawing classes at Art Cube Studios, instructs independent sessions for advanced high school students and adults and special needs students... and runs the studio of course. =)

a.k.a Ms. Chocolate teaches Pre-k, Elementary and Middle School age classes. She's our "Party Girl" and will mostly be seen having a blast at our birthday parties as she entertains and educates all at the same time. In addition to parties, you'll see her at the front desk and if you're lucky, you'll hear her friendly voice on the phone if you call in. She is super crafty, has an excellent eye for design and most importantly... has a nice following on pinterest.
