An attentive and enthusiastic art instructor, Dina has taught and inspired students of all ages and skill levels and developed original lesson plans and course curricula. 

Dina has classical training and is a proficient painter in the tradition of western figurative art, with particular focus on portraiture, landscapes and still lifes. Her passion is to nurture her students’ workmanship and mastery of the craft: creativity without skill is like a horse without feed. “In the mountains the shortest way is from peak to peak, but for that one must have long legs!”
