My son's goal was to go to art school to study fashion design but this decision was made the summer before his senior year of high school with no background in art classes. He did not have years to work on the ever important portfolio vital to art school acceptance. Nataliya helped my son understand what the art schools required from a portfolio standpoint and helped him work towards that goal. My son was accepted to EVERY school he applied with merit money at every one of them. The investment in Nataliya's art lessons paid HUGE dividends. We are eternally thankful for her patience, support and incredible teaching.

Nataliya is amazing! Using her knowledge, expertise of art, and advanced concepts, she was able to push my daughter to create a great portfolio which got her accepted to her first choice of universities. She is professional and was accommodating to our schedule. My daughter really enjoyed working with Nataliya, she is fantastic!!!

Nataliya has been an amazing art and portfolio teacher for almost 2 years. She makes sure that the artwork that you worked on reflects well on your personality, while also puts you in the good light for college reviews. Her advice had been very precious and she has been there for me even in the time between classes in order to make sure the portfolio was going well. She is an incredibly caring person and a great professional. With her help, my artistic skills have significantly improved, and she taught me a lot about various techniques and materials. Thankfully to her support, I was able to get a 5k scholarship for my portfolio from Drexel and has been accepted into UVA, VTech, Pratt, and Massart, while still waiting from my other colleges. Nataliya is a great teacher, and I definitely recommend her!
