The vivid imagination of youths and rational thinking of adults, excellent memory, and instant creativity, this amazing age has all the learning benefits you can imagine. Sometimes it's hard to believe how much a kid of this age can learn during one two-hour lesson.

 

Each lesson covers an important art concept, needed for fluent representational drawing and painting. It is combined with an intro to a cultural phenomenon: a style, and epoch, or a single artist. Students get to create their original artworks from scratch within the guidelines of the topic. Each topic can be adjusted to a variety of levels, from beginners to advanced.

Art teaching is an interactive process. We start a lesson with a short lecture and demonstration (live in studios, pre-recorded for online lessons). Teachers provide advice, help, correct the digital image of a student's work, explain what works in particular cases and what does not, and why.

This year, we are allowed to open in-studio classes with a reduced number of students, and in stable groups. To reduce the in-person contacts,  we can not mix students between the groups, neither can we offer one-time trials in person. Therefore trial classes and make-ups are available online only. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Sample instructional video:

Our curriculum covers all major art concepts, such as drawing humans, animals, portraits, landscapes; working with watercolor, acrylics, pastels, pencils, and clay. Some of our instructional videos can be found on youtube for free, available for public use. However, we believe that comprehensive artistic development is impossible without teacher's custom guidance and feedback.
