    Svetlana has this incredible way of bringing out your creativity and style. She gives you tips on how to see further into your subject and encourages you to bring out a uniqueness that neither you yourself nor anyone else sees... that is until you see it, and then you cant un-see the beauty, the color that you had not bothered to perceive before. Its quite amazing to watch your art gain individuality right before your eyes. That is, if thats what you want, what youre working on at that time. If youre looking more to replicate, to familiarize yourself with a technique, still Svetlana is a perfect instructor as she is familiar with and proficient in many techniques, from paints to pastels to clay to mixed media (basically you name it). Hands down, my favorite art teacher of all time!
