Aquarelle Art Academy

About Us

The Aquarelle Art Academy was opened in 2010 as a school for drawing and painting. The principal art tutor Vlad Verbni is a qualified teacher with more than 20 years of experience in the fine art and creative industry.

Vlad holds a Bachelor of Graphics from the National Academy of Art (Kiev, Ukraine). He has had his fine art pieces displayed in art exhibitions in Kiev, and later ran a successful graphic design studio for 10 years.

During this time he was a mentor for his creative team and discovered a passion for teaching. This led him to leave the corporate world and open an art studio in Melbourne for those with the desire to expand their creative horizons - from children, to teenagers, to adults. All require different approaches and present different challenges. Despite these differences, we do our best to ensure that all students come away from classes feeling happy and fulfilled, with another set of skills firmly in their grasp.

Our tutor is extremely passionate about teaching and infuses classes with an engaging energy that inspires kids. This engaging teaching style is the key to our success.
