MMTB's day-long intensives with Elena are astounding. DO NOT go in with a closed mind, or thinking you know things - if you do, you will walk away bitter and confused, because Elena will challenge everything you know - BUT you will walk away with a completely new perspective if you allow yourself to learn. The days are intense (as expected), so be prepared to abandon everything you knew on the fly - and be prepared to have your mind blown, and explore aspects of your art you've never explored before.

The objective of this class is to push drawing skills, to increase ability to see the relative values within the objects/figure and to learn to ‘plan ahead’ with specific goals to accomplish at different times during the painting. Progressing to painting is at the Instructor’s discretion and depends on the experience of the student and success of the initial drawings.

This class will address the principles that are essential to transform abstract flat shapes into fully dimensional form and create a sense of light on the objects/figure. The student will focus on drawing and painting the object/figure with a full range of values and develop the ability to make accurate relative value calibrations. The focus will be on structure, anatomy, proportion, light direction, edge conditions, abstract movements through the figure, composition and an understanding of basic form.

About Marina
As a child of five years old I was brought by my mom to Gulyaev’s Art Studio and this famous Ukrainian artist involved me in the marvelous world of fine art.

In high-school, I participated in a federally-funded program for the Gifted and Talented in Visual Art. After graduation I won a huge competition and was admitted as a student of the Architectural department of the Kiev Architectural Civil University. In 2001, I become a student, hand-selected by the director of extraordinary Master degree program of Visual Communication, offered by Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY). In master classes, we learned from each other and worked with the best illustrators: Murray Tinkelman and Cris Payne, Dave Passalaqua and Sano Kazu (Kazuhini), Bunny (Alice) Carter and Bob d’Sey, I love to learn new skills and keep learning new styles and techniques
all the time. This love has inspired my beloved students to do the same.

I've known Marina for a very long time and while I haven't taken any classes yet, I most definitely would recommend her to anyone who's looking for a good art teacher. She is a very talented artist and has a rare ability to inspire people to be creative. Her students' paintings are awesome and always make me smile looking at them.

I have taught over 500 students how to paint! Each painting lesson is tailored to your interest and where you want to develop skill. My schooling background is in figure painting, modern painting techniques, color theory and composition. I have been trained by masterful painters from all over the world and look forward to sharing all that I have learned with you.

About Megan
In my paintings I am drawn to the timelessness of the human figure. I find people to be my biggest source of inspiration. This appreciation extends also to the students I am honored to teach. I never quite know where the painting will take us and what skills will be honed to match the inspiration the student has, but on many occasions we both are wonderfully surprised by the results. As a teacher I feel I am most useful when the lessons inspire. The technique will come with time but it takes inspiration to get there!

I had three other painting instructors before I came upon Megan's class and I will say she is the best painting teacher I have had and that does not come easy because I am a professional sculptor that has taught and taken many classes in the art field. Simply put Megan is at the top of her game and her style of teaching is one that most anybody will benefit from her classes.

Education is my second passion, and i find it correlating perfectly with art. I love to educate and spread art as I think of myself as a very social, people oriented person.

Moe is a good instructor, he has a lot of experience with teaching basics and intermediate topics in the fine arts. Not only is he familiar with traditional painting and techniques, but his practice itself is very innovative in inspiring you how to harness your own skills and seeing artmaking in your own way.

Learn how to stretch watercolor paper and blend techniques of watercolor dyes and ink to create a unique look!

About Latausha
I love, love, love to create! I am a graduate of Columbus College of Art & Design where I received my Bachelors of Fine Arts in Illustration. I love to explore color, lighting & textures. Currently, I own a party business where all the decorations are handmade. I try to find a way to be creative everyday.

Telling stories through art is very important to me. This is why I am a Children's Illustrator. Being able to draw something, add color and tell a story is an honor. Illustrating allows me to teach someone or cause a reaction solely based on what I create.

I learned to combine ink and watercolor dyes while in college. It was given as a one time assignment but I began to use the technique and make it my own by practicing on different subject matter.

I also specialize in digital illustrations through the use of Adobe Illustrator , dra
wing and pointillism. Pointillism is one of my favorite techniques. It can be very tedious but the finished product is impactful and rewarding.

Book a lesson with me and I assure you that you will take your personal creations to the next level! I want to help you achieve your personal goals.
