Instructor: Oksana Zhelisko
Eyes can be a challenge for the figurative artist. Creating expressive eyes with a spark of life in them needs know-how. Now you can improve your abilities to paint realistic eyes, and this will in turn help you to create better portraits. The instructor will explain anatomy, make you aware of necessary details, and show you practical techniques in her demonstrations.
About the Instructor: Classically trained in Eastern Europe, Oksana began her career as an artist in L'viv, Ukraine. Oksana entered the Ivan Trush College of Decorative Arts in 1996.

Oksana brings her training, skill, and passion to her painting, and she is versatile in expressive styles. She is adept at many genres, including portraiture, still life, and landscape.
