Another year with lockdown restrictions has passed, however it was still a busy year with significant milestones for me!
During the 4-month lockdown, I was drawing and painting my own art, doing digital stuff, and teaching online classes to my students.
I created 33 YouTube videos;
I wrote 15 educational blog posts;
I published 189 Instagram/FB posts:
11 interviews with Russian-speaking artists
I taught 24 online classes;
I created 77 different sizes of drawings/paintings (not counting sketches/pictures that I created to prepare for classes).
During the 6 months of the school year and a few summer days - I was teaching in person:
In 3 cities - Kitchener, Guelph and Ottawa;
I presented 44 art workshops in total:
14 art picnics for kids
9 art picnics for adults
5 hand sewing workshops
I taught 111 art classes in person in Kitchener!
I hosted more than 200 students and many of them are now permanent participants.
For the first time in 2021:
I taught art in Ottawa;
I got a grant for digital marketing;
I leased my own space in Kitchener - unit 1, 44 Gaukel street!
I would like to present my artwork for two of the most active participants as a big thank you:
Lena was the most active student that attended most of the art workshops for adults;
Mariana was the most active participant in art classes - in person and online and different workshops for kids.
Thank you all my students for the support in 2021!
See you in 2022!
