Welcome to my studio!
One-to-one lessons for amateurs from painting and drawing for students in a different age!
First meeting (about two hours) is for free.
I prepare a plan of workshops based on informations you will give me. For me important is age (from 10 to 100), skills level (amateur to advanced), what kind of techniques you (or your child) would like to develop.
Generally, one artistic workshop takes 2-3 hours. At my studio everything is ready when you arrive. An easel, drawing sheets, small canvases, pencils, charcoals, acrylics... an teacher (me), waiting for you.
We can also meet at your place (area of Livingston and Edinburgh)

Fragment of participant's opinion (translated into English):

"I have been working with Monika Skarzynska more than ten years. As a Graphic Designer, she is always thorough and perfect in her work, and is always on time with her projects. She understands individual needs of our customers. During realization projects she remembers both practical suggestions of clients and about her graphic-artistic skills.
Personally, she is very friendly, kind person with a positive attitude, open for people. The key advantage is that Monika often combines computer graphic with drawing skills. With all Monika's projects I was very happy and satisfied.
Also, I want to point out that my daughter, Dominica, regularly had been visiting Monika's artistic studio in Warsaw. For more than three years, Monika had been giving Dominica lessons from painting and drawing and imaginative exercises. They both like each other very much.
I definitely recommend Monika and her graphic-artistic skills.

Psychology as a hobby
Psychology is one of these ways: mostly I have been fascinated by Carl Gustav Jung's analysis. That's why in 2016 I I participated in Process Oriented Psychology: psychotherapeutic and social issues, including 120 hours of theory and exercises in a small group of 9 people. I have been reading psychologic books regularly and probably never stop.
Do what I love, to then stay a happy and fullfilled person
Take what I need to develop myself from other people's experience and share my own with them
Through action, not through empty words, I shape my soul
Respect myself, respect people, respect life.
