I am excited to announce that I am opening up my private pre-college portfolio/adults/children art lessons to outside lessons. I am fully vaccinated as a teacher and would still require students to wear masks and will do the same, but at least we can meet up outside and enjoy live lessons as well...

I loved my time with Nataliya! Her private lessons were incredibly helpful for me to expand as an artist, and she helped me get into Rhode Island School of Design, Tufts, Pratt, and MICA. She is a very professional and engaged teacher, but she made sure that the students' voices shined through the art and let us create what we wanted. Her portfolio preparation advice was also extremely beneficial, as she works with you throughout the whole process. Highly recommend checking her out!

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.

Excellent instructor! Thanks to Nataliya's excellent mentoring, my daughter created an outstanding portfolio. As a result, she is headed to Cambridge, Massachusetts in the fall. She was offered several scholarships and had her pick of 4 different colleges! Thank you for helping to make my daughter's dream come true! You are an amazing artist and your help in putting together a winning portfolio made all the difference!
