Ann Tsybina

Constructive Method Teacher

I was born in Russia in the city of Murmansk in 1996. In 2014, I became the student of the art lyceum in St. Petersburg and in 2017, I entered the world-famous painting faculty of Repin Imperial Academy of Arts. Studying there was challenging and interesting at the same time and gave me invaluable experience. Last year I gradated from the Academy with flying colours. Being a student, I practiced as a painting and drawing teacher, and now I continue to teach adults and children, both professionals and amateurs. When teaching, I always try to explain all the details of the process as well as to inspire creativity and interest to arts in my students. I believe in individual approach to every student and try to set more and more complex and interesting tasks in drawing and painting at every lesson. I absolutely love my work and I am happy to be the part of the Madrid Academy of Art team!
