Art classes for children (from 5 y.o.)
Based on step-by-step method we teach children how to draw and paint animals, people, nature, cars, fruits, etc. After the picture is done children are able to repeat the same steps and draw similar pictures themselves.

Drawing and painting lessons for teens and adults
Our classes work for very beginners as well as intermediate students. You will learn composition, perspective, basic shapes regardless a medium you choose (pencils, pastel, watercolours, oil, acrylic, fresco).
