works are class assignments; they are different in topics and technique – watercolor,
gouache, pencil, Indian ink. Created mostly between 2018 and 2020, although there are

desire to learn art techniques. Each pupil is a creative personality who tries to bring
their thoughts, feelings, dreams, and love for visual art to their drawings” –
