I can help with portfolio development for middle schoolers who are passionate about art, and need more structure and skills for high school. lessons will be tailored to the interests of the student.

About Nataliia R.

Hello! My name is Natalia, and I'm a classically trained artist and architect. I studied for six years at the National University of Construction and Architecture in Kharkiv, Ukraine. I was fortunate during this time to also have been mentored by the famous Ukrainian artist, Vitaliy Kulikov. I have lived in New York City since 2010, and during this time I have worked as a professional portrait artist. I have also volunteered as a guest artist in my son's elementary school for five years, where I produced unique artworks in collaboration with students for school auctions and explored different artists and art styles. In my one-on-one classes you will have the opportunity to study figure drawing, portrait, still life, interior and perspective drawing. My favorite media includes pensil, graphite, charcoal and oil pastel. We can focus on a range of techniques depending upon your specific interest. Drawing is a process without the end. One can always improve with guidance and practice or explore proven methods as a beginner. I have extensive experience with kids, teens and adults. I can also assist with portfolio development for middle schoolers who are passionate about art and need more structure and skills for high school coursework. Lessons will be tailored to the interests of the student. If there is a specific area to focus on or improve in, I would love to work with you.

Nataliia taught me so much about how to draw successfully. I've always loved art and sketching, and it was great to learn from such a talented teacher. Nataliia's tactics make learning easy but effective, and I think she is the perfect fit for anyone who wants to sharpen their skills!

Natalia was an excellent teacher for my twin boys while they were in elementary school. She created interesting and challenging projects in a range of media, and also was incredibly skilled with drawing techniques and a range of media. Her teaching approach is unique for these times, specifically when children are using digital media so much. Highly recommended!

Natalia's teaching helped me drastically with sketching. She taught me so many things that I now use whenever I draw. She also made drawing fun because of the interesting ways she taught me lessons -- I even remember going to the museum once to learn.

During that time, I worked with kids ages 5 to 10 years old, have created a special themed lessons, such as printmaking, collages, portrait drawing etc. For the art auction, every year, based on the auction theme, we created six different projects, one per grade, where every class produced its own artwork, and one main artwork in collaboration with all the kids in school. I personally worked on every project and organized the art process, so everyone could have a part in it. Around 24 artworks were created every year.
