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.
Knows his stiff
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.
