Learn to Paint Like Van Gogh

In this class we will attempt to learn from the great 19th century painter Vincent Van Gogh.

We will study in depth Van Gogh’s approach to color, brush work and form. We will focus on one of the subjects dear to Van Gogh – flowers. Using gouache we will paint replicas of his two famous paintings - Sunflowers and Irises in a Vase. Then we will attempt our own interpretation - peonies - from a photo.

My focus is on helping other artists to improve their artistic abilities, to give them tools to achieve their art goals, to find inspiration and courage to create. My art classes are for people who are serious about improving their skills but not interested in a rigid academic setting.

I teach through simple but effective demos and exercises and work mostly with water media: watercolor, gouache and acrylic. Through my teaching experience, I am privileged to connect with thousands of artists worldwide, who in their turn help me to continue learning and growing as an artist.​​​​​​​

I was reluctant to take this class in the beginning but I loved every minute of it. It is easy to turn out fairly good painting and I found a lot of joy in the process. I highly recommend this class, you will not regret it great teacher, clear and concise. I will seek out more of her classes!

Ksenia’s class provides that inspiration and also important tips on subject matter. Her classes speak to my heart. I plan to watch them all regardless of my beginner status!!
