Student Testimonials

Alex encourages artistic growth through his knowledge, professionalism, and dry wit. He takes the fluff out of art and attempts to teach objective sight and a sense for the harmonious relationships that create the human form. Finally, his cookie and beverage selection is both generous and on point.

The only thing that would make this class better would be if Mr. Chubotin wore a monocle and smoked a cigar…and perhaps if he were to award a cake to the best artist at the end of the course with the promise to eat it with him while everyone else had to draw them. He, of course, would award the cake to himself every time. That is how hilarious I believe this man to be. – Tracey Colaianni

Alex is a good role model and a good person to check in with on drawing and other artistic matters.

The instructor has excellent credentials and is able to help each student at their own level.

The professor took his time with each student, He encouraged improvement and always helpful.
