Hear what others are saying:

"I had an awesome experience painting with Anastasiya and my group. Anastasiya is very kind, welcoming, informative and patient. She takes the time to assist each painter individually giving tips and suggestions. I'm not a painter so I was a little nervous at first. But I ended up just getting lost in having fun painting. It was relaxing and therapeutic."-Andre


"Ana is laid back and excellent as an instructor for those of us who can't draw straight lines." -Carol


"Ana was amazing. She’s a terrific instructor and makes you feel at home. Great for the novice and more advanced artist." -Rizz


"Wonderful experience! The painting I created turned out great and I had a lot of fun. Well worth the price." -Kallee
