Trumbull couple to open art studio in fall

TRUMBULL — Art is a powerful tool for children, said Camille Chistoni.

It can unlock their creativity and give a child who might not excel in other areas a sense of purpose, she said.

“Coming into an art class gives kids a way to express their feelings and express themselves,” said Chistoni, a Trumbull resident who, with her husband, Walter, has run art classes through the mobile art education program Abrakadoodle since January 2020.

Abrakadoodle is a Virginia-based franchise business with locations throughout the United States, as well as programs in Singapore and China. Its main focus is bringing art education to schools, camps, private clients and others. But, later this year, the Chistonis will open Connecticut’s first brick-and-mortar Abrakadoodle art studio.

The business is expected to open in late October at 2285 Reservoir Ave. in Trumbull, next to the Learning Experience preschool. Both Camille and Walter Chistoni said they feel the studio will enrich the region and provide more arts education opportunities for families.
