About this pro

I am a full time fine artist and an inspiring teacher. My paintings are award-winning pieces and I am willing to teach you how to paint portraits, figure, landscape, or still life. My style is a combination of Russian and American art schools.
I have a lot of experience teaching people from all kinds of backgrounds and skill sets. In the end, I enjoy what I do and happy to help you to either get into art school or jsut get better in doing what you love - creating art!

Definitely the learning process and finding something new - both for teacher and student.

    Very nice gentleman, he made the teaching process seem very friendly, even though he talks about very important and serious aspects of the fine art! If you are looking for the traditional Fine Art teacher, then Nikita is your best choice for a reasonable price.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

If the student is a child, I ask him to first describe himself via drawing. The working process is full of games and fun experience, though we are still covering the basic fundamentals of the fine art realm. If the student is an adolescent or an adult, I also have a talk about art history while we are learning the fundamentals of drawing, painting, or digital.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I graduated from the Children's Art School in Russia. Had a privelege to work with children and adults in an art tudio in Moscow.

I graduated from the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art with high honors.
Currently I work part time in a fine art gallery.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$35 per hour.

How did you get started teaching?

I was asked to help with some students in the atelier in Moscow.

What types of students have you worked with?

Children, as well as kids with disabilities, and older people.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am a part of the biggest representative art event this year - Art Renewal Center Salon.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Check what you really want to learn from the gigantic number of the artistic styles and traits.
For example, I can teach you traditional representative methods of fine art, of pencil and charcoal, oil painting and watercolor. I also teach anatomy of the human body.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What is art to you? Do you see yourself becoming a professional? What artists or asrtistic traits do yo like?
