Art Studio Agoura was established by artist Elena Avanesova. All classes are taught at the artist’s home studio.

At Art Studio Agoura we encourage imagination, teach creativity, and visual expression. Students learn about artists, art styles, and art movements; they practice sketching, drawing, and painting. Students are introduced to art fundamentals and design principles. Every project includes important art elements such as color, form, line, shape, space, texture, and value. Projects are designed for students individually, whether your goal is to learn how to draw, or practice a new art medium, or get better in certain painting/drawing style, or create a portrait; we can teach you all the basics to help you to create a masterpiece!
