About Maria

My specialty is in academic/classical drawing, exploring anatomy, perspective, and composition. I am highly proficient with traditional media as well as Photoshop, Illustrator, inDesign, and Flash. I have a Master of Arts degree from Belarussian Academy of Arts and extensive professional experience in traditional academic/classical drawing, painting, composition, as well as color theory, technical drawing, art history, and anatomy. For over 15 years, I taught drawing, painting, graphic design, and college preparation courses at Belarussian Academy of Arts, Belarussian Arts College, as well as to private and home school groups in Los Angeles.
 
I specialize in helping young artists master their art skills and vision and mentoring them through a successful application process to an art college of their choice. As a former admissions counselor for Belarussian Academy of Arts, I have extensive knowledge and understanding of portfolio requirements for art school admissions. Whether your goal is to pursue your passion for art professionally or as a hobby, I can help you learn how to approach the art of academic drawing, explore different techniques in painting, and build an exciting portfolio.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing
