         " I had a fantastic experience with Alicja. The classes are very relaxing and friendly, she is patient and takes time to explain to every students how to paint or draw. She also has a great sense of humour! Besides that, I was extremely pleased with what I learned both with color mixing, painting and drawing techniques. She has a precise and elaborate way of teaching that work both with beginners and advanced levels. I have already some experiences and those classes allowed me to reconnect with my skills and to discover new methods. I highly recommend her! "

        " Alicja is a very professional, compassionate and understanding teacher. I did not know that someone could adapt so well according to different students’ levels. I felt at complete ease from day one to ask questions or clear my doubts about any pastel stick she suggested. She answered all my questions with patience, and helped me develop my sense and my vision for art. Although soft pastel was new medium for me, she guided me proficiently to absorb as much knowledge as she could impart to me. I am very happy with my decision to learn from her, and hope to continue finding challenges that will help me grow further under her guidance."

Her knowledge about many painting techniques is astonishing and this is reflected in the fact that she is so good in explaining clearly, step by step and with hundreds tips, how to achieve the best result! I enjoy so much the classes because Alicja is able to make them relaxing but lively. I appreciate very much her kindness, good mood, loquacity and excellent sense of humor. She cheered up my day many times. 
If you subscribe to her classes you cannot fail to be 100% satisfied. I strongly recommend her."

        " The personalized aquarelle course I took with Alicja was a fantastic experience. Not only because of all I learned technically during the 3 months course but specially because I had the opportunity to relate the aquarelle painting styles to other aspects of life.
Alicja is very knowledgeable and her experience as professional architecture and talented artist results in one of the best "maestras de arte". Thank you Alicja for the opportunity to be at your lessons."

         " Alicja is an excellent teacher. I appreciate very much her talent of understanding when I need her help or when, instead, I need to be pushed and try things for myself. She explains in detail the techniques so I feel prepared theoretically and, at the same time, I gain practical knowledge and apply the theory on a particular painting. She gives me a solid foundation, self confidence and courage to draw what inspires me the most. I chose a complicated subject and was very doubtful I could manage to create a beautiful painting, but, thanks to her, I accomplished something magical! "
