Wolfgang Bucher

Wolfgang Bucher has been fortunate enough to parlay his two favorite things, art and coffee into a career. He part-times as a barista at City Center Starbucks. He has worked an artist/educator in Kansas City for over 15 years, developing curriculums and programs for youth that utilize interdisciplinary art as a vehicle to enhance self-compassion, life skills, and social skills. In 2006, Bucher co-founded Mosaic Brain, which provides after-school, evening, and summer art programs to at-risk youth and families in the urban core of Kansas City. In 2008, Bucher organized Chalk Walk in the Historic Northeast, an annual accessible chalk art festival on the Concourse at Kessler Park. On his off time, he bikes, gardens, and reads books.
