Their students learn to draw fluently anything they want from imagination or nature using any approachable art media. They train them to be in control of all levels of the creative process, from scratch to final touches, and to apply this knowledge in other aspects of their lives.
They do not teach their students to copy artworks made by someone else, artworks where all decisions are made for them. They help them develop a better connection with themselves, know what they want, and how to reach their goals. Students stay with them for many years. They are so proud of amazing young artists, designers, and creative thinkers, raised in their studios.

“My daughter attended the full day week long “Painting Nature” online class this summer. She liked it soo much that she used to get up early and be ready before the class started (this doesnt happen on normal days:)). The teacher Katerina was exceptionally good with the kids and taught them new stuff in a methodical and engaging way. We are planning to enroll her in regular classes after that camp. Here are in my daughter’s words:
“I loved the camp because we learned new things everyday. And the teacher was super nice and explained things very nicely.” – Amit C.

Their curriculum is built around the concept of taking initiative. At every step, they encourage their students to ask questions, take risks, and think critically. As they make decisions, they develop their own natural values. And as they challenge themselves, they establish confidence and experience the joy of learning.
