« I've been taking painting classes with Alexandra for about 2-3 years. She is very reliable, always present, always thinking about what her students wish to learn and try. She provides lots of support and affirmation as well as information about painting technique and composition. She's very bright and fun and class is always a high point of my week! »

Both classically and conceptually trained visual artist with Russian heritage teaches in both English and Russian

Methodology

My life has taken me from the Soviet underground to a prominent place in the American art world. Born in the Soviet Union I found my footing alongside now-famous dissident artists before political pressures brought me to the United States as a refugee in the late 1980s.
Through my personal experiences, having risked everything to follow my own muse, I do know how important self-expression is to every person.

Background

I have been teaching art since I was in high school. To that point on I have taught in all kind of schools in the age group probably from 3-99. I believe that a mediocre teacher tells, a good one explains and a good one inspires!

I had no experience painting when I came to Alexandra 3 years ago. She is very knowledgeable about all styles of painting. She knows all the artists. She can guide you in the direction you want to go even when you don't know where you are going. I have learned a lot from Alexandra. She is a great teacher. She doesn't push her taste and style on you. She helps when you ask without being overbearing. She offers suggestions when you get stuck and lets you run with your ideas unless she thinks you are going in the wrong direction and only then will she nudge you. I have been very happy with every work of art I have produced and grown a tremendous amount. I highly recommend her.
