Marian is an incredibly accomplished artist and an excellent educator, with a great sense of humor! He has guided me on my painting journey over the past year, and I can see the progress in my technical skills, approach, understanding, and in my confidence. His passion for art is contagious and very motivating. His classes are more than about painting, they are about the student's development as an artist. Thank you, Marian!
I am so happy to have this opportunity and platform to express my deep appreciation for Marian, whom I consider to be a very talented artist and mentor. His impressive and extensive professional background as an illustrator and painter qualify him for teaching the language of art. His creative and innovative capacity, acute visual intelligence ( highly trained eye), combined with strong vision, limitless imagination and immense knowledge, gives Marian a unique driving force in visual communication.
