Art classes



I continue doing private/semi-private online lessons. It gives more flexibility for the students and, at the same time, allows for more opportunities to receive professional one-on-one art instruction without having to travel. In those lessons, you can work with your preferred medium and explore new techniques at your own pace. I develop an individual curriculum for every student. For more information, fill out the form on the REGISTRATION page or send me a message.

I can also offer in-person private or semi-private lessons in my home studio in Bethesda, MD. Contact me for more details.
