Irina’s classes are described as “so much fun” by my 11 years old son. He loves art but lacked confidence in his freehand drawing ability. Irina is patient and caring and takes the time to get to know the individual needs of the child. Each week my son brings home artwork that he is proud to have created.

Irina is also knowledgeable and very approachable and we have been able to ask advice about purchasing various art equipment. Thank you Irina for your kindness and support.


My little one (6) joined October half term Art classes for a week and she absolutely enjoyed her art lessons with Irina. Lucia said the art teacher is very nice and kind. She is looking forward to join next holiday lessons if available. The last day exhibition was amazing! All the paintings that Lucia drew during the sessions are all up on her room wall.


Irina has been teaching our son (9 ) for a few months now, thanks to her he is much more interested in art. He has already learned some new techniques with her and has become more confident. He has produced several new paintings which he is proud of, and his teachers at school have been very impressed!

Irina is very patient and knows how to teach art in an interesting and engaging way. Would recommend her to anybody wanting to learn some new techniques, for themselves or for a child.
