We will keep some of the online classes even when we re-open classes in studios, to accommodate  the needs of distant learners that have joined us during the pandemic.

Changes due to COVID-19:

ALL CLASSES ARE CURRENTLY TAUGHT ONLINE,

and will continue throughout the summer.

 

Online classes are taught via zoom.

Each class starts from the teacher's demo, after that, students start working. Teacher asks them to show their works in the camera, takes pictures, and shows how to fix them on the digital copies of their works. 

Each week, we shoot instructional videos, and students watch them before the class starts.

Sample video:

KIDS 8-12 yrs 

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.

 

​Only... if he or she is interested. Luckily, art history provides an endless source of interesting stories and objects, not to mention masterpieces of all kinds!  So after several years of experiments we developed a method, that combines practical art lessons with a kid-friendly study of art history.​

 

Each lesson is dedicated to some epoch and starts with a short lecture, briefly touching on philosophy, history, and art of that period.Then we focus on some art phenomena that happened during that time, and for the rest of the lesson we study it in practice.

If you decide to sign up after the demo, the demo fee will be credited towards your tuition. You will be receiving monthly invoices.

For the missed classes, make ups are available upon request.
