Before Maya Shapiro could talk – she could draw. By age 5 her best friends were her crayons and pencils. By 9 her artwork was published. After completing her degree in Fine Art in Alma-Ata, Kazakhstan, she burst onto the art scene, winning kudos for her unique and vibrant visionary work.
At 2002, Maya continued her education at the University of Judea and Samaria, Israel graduating with Honors in Practical Engineering in Design and Visual Communications.
Maya’s creations are born of her philosophical and spiritual grounding, and can be found in galleries from Israel to Canada.
Now, with over 18 years of experience Maya is excited to share her knowledge with a young generation.
It’s been almost two years since the first art class my son has taken. Since then his little world has changed and Maya is the reason to this change. You are very creative, inspiring and motivating, talented, fun and very professional teacher. You have a special way to let my son know and feel that he is very unique! I am very grateful and thankful to you. We wish you all the best in your very hard job!!!
Very thoughtful and high mastery level makes the art lessons full of joy. Diversity of used techniques and concentration on the development of kids' imagination results in the unique art works.
My son has been enjoying Maya's lessons for over a year now. With him usually being quite physical learner, I'm impressed by Maya's ability to spark his enthusiasm in art. Due to one-on-one instruction he had a chance to explore multiple art forms based on his interests. Maya also incorporates some theory and history of art in lessons without him noticing it. He is coming back for more!
