Hello and Welcome to Studio Q, were I teach people how to Learn to Draw in 8 weeks!

David Nicole and Arina

David, Nicole and Arina come to my art classes since 2010.

Allow me to start from a little introduction.

My name is Yuriy. I don’t pretend, nor do I consider myself being a talented artist. In my opinion, at most I possess decent drawing and painting skills. However, I do believe that I am a very good teacher of drawing and painting. It was not until I was in my mid-thirties that I decided to learn the drawing techniques on academic level. This decision has offered me an opportunity to meet a person, a teacher, who has drastically changed my approach to drawing – Ron Brown. I met this wonderful and talented individual at Mount San Antonio College in Walnut, California. Meeting Ron and seen him teach pushed me to develop my eight-week course of learning basic drawing. If you are interested to see Ron’s art – here is Ron’s website http://www.freefallart.com

In 2010 I have become disabled. This event has changed my entire life. I had to quit my job with my father’s company and leave my professional photography days behind. Since I had very limited mobility, teaching drawing and painting at my home-studio became a natural choice for me. Over the past 5 years of teaching drawing and painting. I have had a lot of success stories among different age groups of students. Some of those who started with me several years ago still come to the studio to expand their arsenal of skills; some have achieved their goals and continue enjoying creative aspects of this craft on their own. I have had students as young as 7 years old bundle of joy girl and as old as 69 years of wisdom retired man. It is never too late to discover your create side, and enjoy the amazing process of expressing it on a paper or canvas.
Presently, I teach people of all ages from 9 year old children to adults of all ages to draw and paint with different media. If you want to learn how to draw or always wanted to learn to paint – I can help you to achieve this goal! Obviously, I cannot turn you into a new Picasso or Monet, but I guarantee that I can help you learn the craft well enough to produce images that you will like and others will admire.
Please feel free to look through the galleries and information on this site, and give me a call to setup you absolutely FREE consultation and skill test.

I am looking forward to work with you in helping you learn the amazing and fruitful craft of drawing!

With much love,

Yuriy Krasnov.
