Student Testimonials

Yulia was a wonderful instructor! Very engaging and interesting, as well as talented. I would absolutely take a class from her again.

Great instructor, great presentation. Very well organized and focused on techniques in a structured way. – Karen Hogue

I felt like Yulia treated us like proper art students. She went over several techniques, showed us examples from known artists, and then shifted from student to student so we all had individual attention. she offered encouragement, helpful suggestions, and worked with us to master the technique. I have only had a handful of art classes previously, mostly from my youth, and I felt very supported and inspired.

The format was perfect: information, demonstration, practice. Yulia is a great teacher. Her demeanor lessens the intimidation factor of an art class — ‘it’s only paint!’ – Carole Kitchell

Yulia’s generous and pointed suggestions of the practice work. In a Winter course, the scanned examples of the week’s theme by past masters was a superb way to extend the lesson into what has been done skillfully before. Flowers, fruit and landscapes are hard to bring into a Winter evening classroom. Very skillful technique.

Yulia exposes her students to a wide range of artists and resources. I think she’s a very thoughtful and generous teacher, trying to help every student. – Jeannie Neely
