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.

Can I Paint Like That?

Attended: Can I Paint Like That?


Under Alexandra's guidance/teaching, I now have four impressionist paintings hanging in my apartment! Each painting took 3-4 sessions to complete. Alexandra is not only funny, sweet, and kind, but also a great teacher. She would let me pick out a painting that I would like to "replicate", teach me the techniques to get it "right", but also let me know that there is no right or wrong way to paint and allowed freedom to incorporate my own style into the replicas. I enjoyed learning to paint from Alexandra!

Alexandra is kind, funny and patient. She quickly assesses your skill level and instructs from there. She encourages play and experimentation which helped me lessen my need for "perfection." I bought a 3 session groupon package, but found Alexandra's class to be exactly what I need to increase my skill, have fun and relax. I'll be going back for additional classes!
