Philosophy: Elena Parashko provides a spacious, relaxed and friendly environment where students are encouraged to explore their creative talents at their own pace and level of skill development. Students are encouraged to select their own painting projects to work on to suit their area of interest. Aspects of art theory are taught within this practical context. Elena’s extensive teaching experience and training ensures a high quality learning opportunity. Course content is flexible and will depend on the interests and needs of students in each class. For those who cannot attend class in person due to distance or other circumstances, interactive painting demonstrations are available.
