What is RUSART?

RUSART was established in BC, Canada in 2009 by Elena Nahum Leroy. It was a small studio located in New Westminster.
In 2011 RUSART started selling art supplies imported from Russia and Europe.
In 2012 RUSART moved to Vancouver and started growing and expanding. So, by the end of 2014 we had more than 100 art students attending our lessons on regular weekly basis.
In 2016 RUSART moved back to New Westminster to a bigger and easier accessible place, next to 6th and 6th intersection. The same year we started offering chess lessons, magic classes and develop other community programs
In 2017 we opened South Surrey and Coquitlam branches
In 2018 we also opened math and Russian language classes as well as provided a space for the first in BC Russian Library. RUSART also opened programs in support of kids with autism: annual art shows for special kids as well as special art classes - OnTheSpectrum
In 2019 we had over 250 students regularly attending our programs, more than 20 ppl were working or volunteering with us and we were planning to open more community activities: woodworks and robotics.
However, 2020 came with COVID-19 and we had to temporarily close all our locations, except South Surrey.
But all hard times always bring something new and positive: RUSART started offering online sessions, that became very popular (50+students), and launched its own production line: RUSART Casual for students, RUSART Fine for artists and RUSART Professional for professionals. RUSART Professional has no fillers in paints. Just pigments, binders, enhancers and natural preservatives.
We're looking forward to changes coming up in 2021 as RUSART got stronger and more innovative.
