About Anastasia

I am a professional artist with an MFA from Carnegie Mellon University and have over 35 years of teaching experience to children and adults.

I have a unique yet simple approach that I use to teach my students to actually draw or paint what they see before them as opposed to allowing preconceptions and incorrect technique interfere in their pursuit. I teach the student how to see an object correctly and logically by demonstrating how to understand and see the relationships between the different lines and shapes that make up the object. Because my method appeals to logic, even students with no drawing or even artistic experience whatsoever are able to achieve results in a very short period of time. More advanced students will see spectacular improvements within just a few lessons.

With the same ease and success, the student will ultimately be able to draw a simple object, a complicated still life, or even the human face in its exact likeness.

I offer lessons in painting, drawing and sculpture as well as portfolio preparation; my students have been admitted to the most prestigious high schools and Universities including Yale and Harvard, and have received numerous awards (including the Scholastic Gold Key)

I offer private and semi-private art lessons at my studio on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. I am willing to travel to you if you live in the neighborhood.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I look forward to hearing from you!

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.
