    I absolutely loved art classes with Meliksah! He is very talented, passionate and knowledgeable man who loves what he does. I’ve learned so much about water colors and plenty of new techniques that I use when I draw nowadays. He taught me that painting can be not complicated and so much fun!

    He's a wonderful, creative artist and he planned his lessons very well. Also, he has a peaceful presence which makes his class totally enjoyable.

    Relaxing and productive classes. 😄

  • Ming T. L.

    On the first day of class, I hesitatingly stepped into the classroom, doubtful of my artistic worth, and got introduced to the concept of learning and viewing things with "new eyes" and of the importance of practice. I learned about line control and tones. Further class meetings introduced me to shadow, light, reflection, grid technique, grid method, perspective, and capturing objects within a frame. Every time the class ends, I find myself INSPIRED to improve my skill, to be always ready with a sketch book and a pencil/pen. Drawing is no longer a dream, but a joyful activity. The "seeing" part learned in class has gone beyond the limiting boundaries of the classroom. The world has gone bigger, offering so many wonderful possibilities! Quick, grab the pencil, the art materials, sketch, draw, paint, DREAM! Thank you so much, Melixah.
