“ I wanted to receive my Master’s degree in Drawing and Painting, and be a professional artist. In the fall of 2014, I began drawing classes with Vladislav Yeliseyev. This was the best decision I have made regarding my development as an artist. The classes were intense, but in a nurturing environment. My steady improvement in his classes erased any doubt I had about my prospects as an artist.
Proportion, composition, construction, and perspective were elements that were emphasized in this course. We learned how to measure objects from observation as well as training the mind not to rely on vision alone. It was important to stay engaged throughout the entire class or time would be wasted. Whenever I had trouble understanding a concept, he would help me until I figured it out. It was hard in the beginning; however I saw great improvement in my technical abilities. I am grateful to have the opportunity to work with Vladislav, and will always credit him for my re-dedication to art. He has inspired me to go after my dreams, and that I will be able to with a solid foundation.” Jermaine Lund
