Wonderful teacher, very encouraging, extremely helpful with ideas and with painting technique. Great studio environment to paint in. Classes small and lots of private instruction available from Alexandra. She is very creative and I have learned a great deal about painting.
I took some classes with Alexandra in a community arts center and some in her studio. She is able to
Usually I am afraid of making mistakes when I first learn anything. Alexandra explained to me that I can try different things, and, if I do not like the results, I can own unique style and I love what I create. Alexandra is a very good artists. She often introduces students to artists' work they may like.
To summarize...Alexandra is fun, smart, and generous with her knowledge."
Alexandra is wonderful! She is patient, kind, and knowledgeable. She can help all levels of artists!
Alexandra is the perfect teacher/coach for an artist who wants a space
to paint with as much or as little direction from the teacher as the
moment requires. Alexandra provides excellent technical guidance in
traditional painting methods but more importantly for me she is able to
help me translate my ideas, using my personal visual language, onto the
canvas. Her teaching method is rare, combining a deep understanding of
her craft with an ability to perceive how best to assist a student in
achieving their personal creative goals. I have been painting for many
years and consider Alexandra's guidance to have played an important
part in my artistic development.”
I have taken multiple group classes with Alexandra over a number of
years as well as participated in her weekly artist studios. She has
been my inspiration & mentor guiding me to develop my painting
insights/skills to be more aggressive with color & texture in my
work. I have been delighted with my progress & credit much of it to
her insights, enthusiasm & patience. She thinks outside-of-the-box,
and this attribute helps her connect with her students' current state
of art & move them forward to the next plateau. A very special
person & wonderful teacher
“My first experience with Alexandra was when I took her open studio art classes. I was excited to create art but I felt blocked. I remember the first canvas I worked on in Alexandra's studio, in fact I still have it. It was a transformational experience to create the piece. It was meditative and healing and everytime I see it, I feel peace. I have been in Alexandra's classes as well as working with her personally. She helped me create a beautiful oil canvas that still hangs in my dining room! Alexandra helped me realize the difference between creating art and creating artistic crafts. She helped me see "real art" and expand my thinking and abilities. I highly recommend her and I have been grateful to learn from her. She is creative, generous and gifted.”
