She has sound knowledge about different media in fine art, including watercolor, acrylic, oil, mixed media etc. I’ve been taking art lessons from her for over 5 years, and I am still going. Her instructions are very clear, easy to understand, and her help is also hands on. I would recommend her to anybody who is seriously want to learn fine arts.

Cristine

As her student for almost 3 years, I have learned so much from Leyla! She is extremely knowledgeable in a multitude of techniques and media and is always willing to experiment and come up with new ways to improve her creations. What I appreciate most about Leyla is how generous she is with her knowledge, time, materials, and feed-back. She gives detailed critiques for each piece and addresses thoroughly all areas that need improvement. I wish time would allow me to take more of her classes! There is no better way to relax at the end of a hard work-day, while at the same time learning something new and producing a beautiful piece of decor for your home! I highly recommend Leyla to anybody interested in learning visual arts from a very talented instructor!

Cristina

We would like to recommend Leyla because she is a very professional and always prepared fine arts teacher. We benefitted as a family from her lessons and everything was excellent. From the class content to the manner in which she taught me and my daughters, the materials and the time. Thank you Leyla! We hope many students will enjoy her teaching.
