Special Art Courses

RUSART special courses are perfect for people looking for structured instruction and learning new things fast. Apart from our regular classes, where students are working on creating their paintings ready to hang on the walls, our special courses are aimed to teach techniques, not arts, within tight time frames. In other words, we will give you a lot of theory, perform exercises, and do plenty of material practice. We’d suggest taking our regular classes after or during these courses to practice and explore your artistic side.
