A few examples of students artworks completed during this course:

”Petit Papillon” with Olga Furman


“Petit Papillon is class mixture of fantasy and reality. You may start off with a particular baby in mind to paint but then you can turn them into butterflies, fairies, angels, anything you can imagine. You end up with a unique, beautiful baby that’s so adorable you can hardly stand it! Olga teaches in a very informative, relaxed way that is easy to follow. I loved this class” – Carolyn Myles (painting on the left)







“How do you explain a class that helps you incorporate the babies you love into a magical enchanting world. With beautiful flowers and glistening wings and sparkling crowns! Thank you so much Olga for helping me not only advance my art ability but also to learn how to tap into my imagination. Amazing class. I am over the moon happy I was able to participate!” – Catherine Valenti (painting above)
