Art Classes for Teens and Adults

We teach all levels. Even if you have no experience, please don’t be shy to start and ask questions as you’re taking classes to learn new things and  everyone, including us, teachers, were beginners at some point. We also help in protfolio preparation for art schools, colleges and universities, teach techniques and methods of portrait drawing and painting as well as advanced-level projects. 

We teach all mediums: pencil-drawing, pastel, ink-pen, charcoal, watercolors, acrylic, gouache, oil, mixed media, fresco, painting on metal etc.

Although we're focused on practical aspects, we deliver all theory (compositions, colour balance, technologies, proportionng etc.)  you need to know based on your project, experience and goals. You’ll learn with us through practice:

  • Composition
  • Shading
  • Mixing colors
  • Variety of painting techniques
  • Landscape rules
  • Still-life rules
  • Perspective rules
  • Colour balance
    ...and many other things you should know as an artist.

We offer group classes and one-on-one lessons, as well as one-day workshops and online special courses.

You can join anytime and take as many lessons as you like, but we suggest starting with at least one 2-hour session per week.
