Come join us to learn how to paint in the style of The Wonderers of Russia! The Wonderers was an art movement based largely on landscape painting that flourished in Russia in 1880s. Wonderers painted landscapes to explore the beauty of their countryside and encourage ordinary people to love and cherish it. It's time to wonder and enjoy the path and translate your love and appreciation of nature into art.
COME ON IN! ALL VISITORS WELCOME! About the Founder Alexandra Rozenman's career has taken her from the Soviet underground to a prominent place in the American art world. Born in Moscow, she found her footing alongside now-famous dissident artists before political pressures brought her to the United States as a refugee in the late 1980s. From that point on, her multilayered, often mysterious paintings have only gained momentum, taking her from an MFA at the School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts to international exhibitions—to a fellowship with the MacDowell Colony, an illustrious group of bohemians whose members have included James Baldwin and Michael Chabon. Rozenman ia a frequent speaker at many art blogs. Through her personal experiences, having risked everything to follow her own muse, Rozenman knows how important self-expression is to every person. Accordingly at Art School 99 she works to provide students with the technical skills and supportive environment they need to bring their visions to life. Classes might incorporate readings, movies, or collage techniques, and cultivate salon-style inspiration with wine or Russian tea. The outside of Art School 99 is shown in the picture at the top of this page. Many people miss it the first time. Look for a yellow door! We are on a second floor, studio # 34.
