As an immigrant from Russia trained in classical techniques, I bring a rigorous but approachable method to art lessons. I help my students feel confident about their skills and grow into their potential as amateur or professional artists.

I enjoy seeing my students make progress as they create artworks and discover their artistic talents.

    I started with zero experience in any form of art. After 3 or 4 weeks of working with Anatol I understood the basic concepts and was drawing at a level I could not first imagine. I would highly recommend him. He practices patience and going about it the right way

    I started as a complete beginner in drawing. Anatol was great in teaching me the basics, and my drawing skills clearly improved over the short time I worked with him. He is also very pleasant. I will be back working with him soon. Stuart

    Frequently asked questions

    At the start, I ask what a student is looking to get out of lessons, whether it's fun, personal enrichment, professional development, academic growth, etc.

    If the student has previously studied art, I invite them to share anything they would like about their past experience - whether they would like to build on it or go in a different direction. If the student is newer to art, we start with a more basic introduction to the techniques that we will be working on, in accordance with the student's areas of interest.

    Based on this initial discussion, I help the student design a program for lessons at my studio.

    Bachelor degree in Art from St. Petersburg Art Lyceum at St. Petersburg Academy of Arts, Russia. Masters degree in Art from St. Petersburg Theatre Academy.

    Certified Therapeutic Art Life Coach.
