With flexible options, you can design the best program that will meet your needs and make you comfortable. In the friendly and cozy atmosphere of the small art studio, you can forget about everyday troubles and lose yourself in creativity. Icon painting is a very meditative practice. It helps to find stillness and silence in this very fast and noisy world. There are no limits to what you can achieve here. As a teacher, I believe that we all can be creative and create. We just need a welcoming, accepting, and encouraging environment. If you have no experience in any art you are more than welcome to join one of the courses or classes. If you are experienced or have some experience you can learn a new technique and find new ways to grow as an artist.
