    I took several classes with Oleksandra over the year, and each time it was a great experience! She is very patient with beginners like me, encouraged to be creative and trust an artist in you. Highly recommend!

    Oleksandra is very knowledgeable and talented. Did my first paining ever with her and couldn’t believe I can actually draw. Fantastic experience, look forward

  • Olha Sokalska

    Oleksandra is a real artist that has a feeling of other people’s spiritual world. She helped me to open up and actually to have a pleasure from the painting process! Her lessons are truly relaxed, interesting and fun!
