Do you miss traveling or being creative? Are you interested in learning a new technique from a local artist? If so, come join the Vancouver Visual Art Foundation online, as we dive into Japanese culture with Elena Nahum Leroy. In this art class Elena will guide us with watercolors and pens in “Making Waves”.
Elena was born and spent most of her life in St. Petersburg, Russia – a city of artists, ballet and music, or a cultural capital of Russia as most people say.
Although Elena was interested in arts from childhood, she got Master’s Degree in finances and built a good career in investment area in Russia: she was an author and an editor of several text-books printed for universities and professional educational centers, had a department under supervision, and was a well-known expert on mutual funds.
However, in 2005 Elena started learning academic drawing and painting and her life started turning into another way. So, in 2009, when Elena moved to Canada and settled in Vancouver, she decided to quit finances and devote herself to the arts. The same year Elena opened an art studio for children and adults – RUSART Fine Arts Co.
