Students may bring their own materials or purchase them from the school for a $5 materials fee per class.

Art School # 99

Alexandra Rozenman's career has taken her from the Soviet underground to a prominent place among some of America's most revered cultural institutions. Born in Moscow, she found her footing alongside now-famous dissident artists before political pressures brought her to the United States as a refugee in the late 1980s. From that point on, her surrealistic, multilayered paintings have only gained momentum, taking her from an MFA at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts to international exhibitions—including an upcoming exhibit at the Multicultural Arts Center in Cambridge—to a fellowship with the MacDowell Colony, an illustrious group of bohemians whose members have included James Baldwin and Michael Chabon.

Having risked everything to follow her own politically conscious muse, Rozenman knows how important self-expression is to every artist. Accordingly, her classes at Art School # 99 arm students with the technical skills and supportive environment they need to bring their vision to life and the authority they need to keep it from running away and playing pranks on the mayor. Programs often reach beyond the canvas to embrace the artist as a whole person: classes might incorporate readings, movies, or collage techniques, and cultivate salon-style inspiration with French-impressionist-appropriate wine or russian tea.

Customer Reviews

Alex is an amazing instructor, and I love the space and the course. She was able to work with my schedule, and design the course with what I wanted to learn. I took the beginner's painting class for three sessions. I learned so much in just three classes. Plus she charges only $5 for materials for each class if you don't have your own! This is an amazing deal for people looking to brush up on a technique, who want to relax and learn some drawing basica as well as paint something, and/or for those who have never painted before. I would definitely recommend to anyone!

I have been very pleased with Alexandra and her classes. I am a very beginner and started going to her Monday night beginner classes. The class size is very small and she gives you plenty of one on one attention. She is a great teacher and has a way of making you feel comfortable about whatever level you are starting with. Definitely recommend!
