Vancouver Visual Art Foundation’s online art class series brings classes to your home by professional art instructors.

The Vancouver Visual Art Foundation invites you to get creative with our online art class series.

Caravaggio (1571-1610) is for sure a star and one of the most contradictory and scandalous artists. His innovative artistry is recognized as the bridge between the Mannerist style typified by Michelangelo Buonarroti, Agnolo Bronzino, Titian of the High Renaissance and the Baroque splendor of Rubens and Rembrandt. His paintings and persona have entered popular culture, and his portrait and two of his works were featured on the old 100,000 lire banknote of Italy.

Join Elena Nahum Leroy as she guides you step-by-step to one of Caravaggio’s most famous paintings, Still Life with a Basket of Fruit using acrylic paint.

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.

The Vancouver Visual Art Foundation is a not-for-profit organization supported by its members, individual donors, corporate funders, foundations and the Province of British Columbia.
