Visual Arts Educator Kris Finn created The Art Bus in 2021 as a mobile arts program. An Orange County Public Schools arts educator for over 20 years, helping students define themselves as lifelong creative people has been Finn’s source of joy.  Finn recently expanded her offerings to teach camps and classes in her Little Orange Art Studio near downtown Orlando.

Puppeteer Geoffrey Cormier has worked on a wide range of puppetry projects, including two feature films with the prestigious Jim Henson Company. With a career spanning 24 years, Geoffrey’s passion for puppetry has taken him around the world to study various styles and techniques. In 2014, he traveled to Indonesia to closely study some of the oldest forms of puppetry, particularly the grass puppetry of Central Java.
