About the painting course
The course consists of 4 sessions 4 hours each long.

June painting course is devoted to music

Next month we devote to the piano and music. We'll get introduced to the artists of Erik Satie's times — modernistic painters, who depicted musicians and created abstract collages with instruments. We'll sketch still lifes installed on our piano. We'll use scores for collages. We'll learn which color Wassiliy Kandinsky associated with each instrument and, of course, all the time we'll listed to a calming contemporary solo piano music.


Everyone can create, some have just not developed their skills properly or were not inspired enough just yet. The main goal of an art teacher is to inspire, not to teach. So our painting course is based on creating an artistic atmosphere, talks and analyse of the references, providing a space to students to involve them deeper into the process.


"the sound of colors is so definite that it would be hard
to find anyone who would express bright yellow with bass notes
or dark lake with treble."


V. Kandinsky

Our space
Kunstfuck studio is spacious and full of light. There is enough room for 5-6 students. We are located at Astoria: Rakozci ut.18, Budapest. The name of the residency — Kunstfuck — shows our post-modernistic attitude to the art and refers to a famous University of Arts in Stockholm — Konstfack (Konst — art, fack — faculty, Swedish).

About a curator
My name is Oksana Devochkina and I am an artist. I graduated from the art faculty of the St. Petersburg State University with distinction. I have been painting from 2002 though I identified myself as an artist since 2015. I paint for money, I paint for fun, I paint to run from myself and I paint to find myself. And I invite you to join me. I speak English, Russian and German.
