I offer classes, workshops and other educational events for individuals and groups, that provide instruction in a variety of media as well as in the historical and cultural aspects of fine art.

Capri Workshop

The next series of workshops will take place in Capri in April 2015

Dear Friends/Clients,
I have had many requests from clients and friends to teach classes and to share my love of painting with you, and so I now want to let you know that I’ve recently arranged for a wonderful venue in which to do just that. I was fortunate to find a beautiful house in Marina Piccola, Capri, Italy where it would be my pleasure to invite you to participate in a series of watercolor classes. Opportunities for learning oil painting and mixed media techniques will also be available.
My plan will be to offer a 7 day package of classes, which will consist of 7 mornings of 3 hour workshops, including demonstrations and painting in different locations around the island.
Lodging is available, among other places, at a small boutique hotel, the Nautilus, which is only a few minutes walk from my house. Trudy, the owner of the Nautilus, has agreed to offer rooms at the discounted rate for anyone who informs her that he/she is a participant in my classes.
In addition to classes, I will plan on arranging outings and field trips to explore the rich history and startling beauty of the island, as well as dinners, wine tastings and art discussions. And of course anyone is free to coordinate their stay with me with their own plans to see the rest of Italy, including Naples, Sorrento, Amalfi and other places which are only a short ferry ride from Capri.
You may contact me at to make arrangements and to ask any questions.
Look forward to hearing from you, and all the best.

Sonia Grineva.
