Hello! I'm Lacey Buccellato, and thank you for visiting Oh! Canary. "Oh!" is often exclaimed when we make a great discovery, and "Canary" is a sweet symbol of joy and freedom.  Oh! Canary was founded in 2017 to offer our youngest children an opportunity to engage in meaningful and developmentally appropriate visual art experiences.  We also take pride in our unique options for older children and adults.  

I was raised in Kentucky, received a BFA from The University of Georgia and then an MA in Art Education at Brooklyn College.  I'm an NJ & NY certified art educator and have been teaching in Reggio Emilia inspired pre-schools and public elementary schools since 2010.  I hope we'll meet soon!
