"Funny Furry" Secret Box
Mixed-Age Expressive Art for children 18 months-6 years old

Benz Amatayakul Kuipers (Founder) has had a lifelong passion for children's books, storytelling, and creativity. Born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand, she now calls Chicago home. For the past 5 years, Benz has been busy being a mom of two boys and running "Tiny Tree",  an Early Childhood book publisher in Thailand. Together with her partners, she has written and launched nine board books to stimulate the love of reading in babies and children.

Benz came up with the idea to launch "Untaught Art Workshops" after she took on another learning adventure at Open Studio Project (OSP) in Evanston. OSP introduced her to Expressive Art, a different and liberating way of making art. She felt inspired to introduce Expressive Art to a broader audience, especially children. She believes creativity can have a place in everyone's life and will strive to make Untaught Art Workshops an inspiring experience for all.
