    Karina was wonderful! She did a painting lesson for our family of seven (with a wide range of kid ages) and she made it a fun and memorable experience for all of us. The kids created their own pieces of art and we collaborated on a family art project. She taught us some great techniques and helped us make art we will cherish. Not only is she a talented artist, but she is a kind, patient and fun teacher!

    I love the patience and care she has with my 5 year old. You can tell how much she loves to teach children, and my kid really enjoys learning art from Mstudio West.

    Karina is super patient and has a lot of different techniques and options to teach for beginners like myself. She does a great job of making you feel comfortable and creates a relaxing envirornment for newcomers to painting (bonus points for her awesome dog!). Very happy to have found her on here as I’ve been looking for painting classes for a while in DC without luck. Highly recommend!

    Frequently asked questions

    Get to know a student first, and make a plan specifically designed for this particular individual/ group LISTEN first! We all have personal preferences, and my goal is to make sure my customers get the best experience! It means the world to me to see smiles on your faces!

    I always loved teaching, I believe it's a great opportunity to share something you enjoy so much !
    After 20 years of teaching, I have been privileged to work with a wide variety of age groups, backgrounds, and personalities. And I love that!
    I had an unforgettable experience with a family painting event where everyone contributed to ONE canvas which is proudly displayed in their dining room now! Not a common thing to do, but it worked brilliantly! It's truly amazing to see how creative people are!
    Let the teacher know if you are interested in a particular style of art. Also, be open to trying something new! And have fun !!!
    Tell a teacher what you are mainly interested in because each class can be tailored to the specific needs of a student/ group Also, discuss the supplies, a good teacher may recommend a better place to shop or may be willing to “ build in” the cost of supplies into a payment, it can save you some money.
