I would like to help those who understand that drawing from photographs is not learning but copying. I am interested in serious students who want to grow and learn how to grow. I am offering a friendly critique but require a commitment for a better results. The minimal course is six lessons.
I can help beginners who just want to enjoy art with advice what to look for in their creativive efforts and how to set goals.
i studied realistic painting in the art college in Astrakhan, Russia - 1968-1972 and Latvian State Art Academy in Riga, Latvia - 1977- 1981. Drawing is my strong point.
i have a studio in the Pendleton Art Center, Cincinnati, Ohio. My Facebook profile - Natasha Kinnari.

For beginners I set up a still life with some basic geometrical shapes, then we progress to drawing from life the casts, fragments of Michelangelo’s David and other classical head casts. When students are ready, a live model is hired.
in online lessons I can give some samples for a homework

I was teaching in my studio one-on-one, $90-120 for a session of 3-4 hrs, plus model fee, when applicable.
Price for my weekend workshop for a group of 6-10 is $400 per student. It includes 2,5 hrs demo on Friday and 8 hrs with a lunch break on Saturday and Sunday.
I teach time to time, besides of my own painting.
Amateur artists from the sketch group of the Cincinnati Art Club.
Visitors of my studio, which is open to public once a month, sometimes are interested in lessons.
I would advise to send me a few of drawings made from life only, including a self-portrait. Do not worry about the quality of the drawings, the main thing is how your mind is set.
i am open to any questions.
