Acrylic Painting · In home

Boris was a fantastic painting teacher -- knowledgeable, personable, and professional. He was very communicative before the lesson regarding the topic, materials, and timing. Doing an in-home lesson was convenient and made the experience even more memorable. We especially appreciated the convenience of him bringing most of the supplies, while offering the option for us to provide them ourselves for cost savings and to continue painting afterward.

Upon arrival he asked great questions to understand our level of experience with acrylic painting, and walked us through tutorials on techniques before we started the main topic. Then during the lesson he was patient and adaptable as my girlfriend and I expressed our individual art styles. Overall we had a fantastic time and would recommend to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing way to expand their skills and experiences.
