Marina had always turned down people who asked her to give them art lessons. She saw herself as an artist, but no more than that.
“I had a mental barrier - I was insecure, and I didn’t know where to start,” she says.
When she started working with Lev, she realized it didn’t have to be all planned out perfectly. Taking it one step at a time meant she was free to put things on pause whenever it got overwhelming.
That first step was simple: It was a practice lesson with Lev’s daughter.
“That felt comfortable - I didn’t have to worry about bad reviews or things not working out,” Marina explains.
Soon after, Lev helped Marina structure a vision for her program. “We researched what other art schools offer both locally and abroad,” she says.
“It took my mind off all the things that could go wrong, and let me focus on the things I wanted and dreamt of.”
And that’s what Lev really tries to achieve - he tries to shift your focus from your worries to the things you wish for, and get you to feel that spark for life that we sometimes lose.
Little by little, Marina gained confidence in her teaching, and what initially seemed like a long and jumbled list of duties became routine.
“With Lev’s relentless energy and creative approach, my students went on to win awards, participate in contests and auctions,” Marina shares.
“Seeing their success was my true motivation to keep going. Thank you again, Lev, for your positive outlook and determination!”
