I have extensive art teaching experience (more than 35 years), great tutoring skills and remarkable painting and drawing skills (45+ years). I have Master’s degree in Arts, Education and Psychology.

ART CLASSES provide with lots of useful tips, advise and ensure you learn something new.  Every class can follow live demo. You will enjoy lots of attention and very individualized instruction whether you are an absolute beginner or somebody who has been painting before. Our ART CLASSES are not crowded: 5 to 8 students at a time. Live art class has huge advantages over online classes because instructor can see and correct everything right when that appears.

PAINTING WORKSHOPS are different from classes: during workshop, we are painting one particular image start to finish. WORKSHOP deals with specific set of approach and explores specific subject, theme, composition, colors or effects.

All classes and all workshops require to have your own materials because it is a huge plus and helps tremendously.
