From the reality to imagination

In our studio, Evelia Espinosa’s students have completed their artistic level art test with different perspectives, according to their own imagination and design, some of the exams were drawn while others were painted using mixed medias and oils.

We have great artists who only need to be focused on the correct technique and open their imagination to change.  The test consists of many different skills and techniques, like sketch, usage of the color wheel combination and use many painting techniques.

We were glad to award our students with a ribbon at the end of their art test.

Fashion Designer

In Evelia Espinosa’s Art Studio, we are open in helping our students develop in their talents, for example our young student Thanya, she wants to be a Fashion Designer. Fashion designers work in a number of ways when designing clothing and accesories. They have a wide range and combinations of materials, colors, patterns and styles to choose from. Although, most dresses are used in convential everyday wear, unusual garments are usually sought for special occasions such as evening wear or party dresses. In our art studio in our staff is open to help every student and increse their talents. Thanya told us that she would like to draw her art test with some fashion designs for her portafolio and we challenged her to draw a dress with flowers using complementary colors. She used magenta and green prismacolor pencil crayons and a lot of imagination. We encourage Thanya to use her skills and potential in other medias for get more designs.

Here at Evelia Espinosa’s Art Studio in Port Moody, our student and art teacher Victoria Makovetski enjoy painting different techniques. When we asked Victoria about her painting she told us, “I was inspired and learn different techniques, I am always looking to learn more ways to apply the paint and connect withthe painting and the audience or viewer, nevertheless I paint to express myself with the choice of colour, I feel that, I have completed this painting and it gives offthe vibe I want it to, my next steps are to take my knowledge further and step out of my comfort zone”.

Much like Victoria, many students have created beautiful composition to express emotions and feelings. We always encourge our students to share their art work as they should be very proud of their hard work.

We are happy to hear that and we are glad that Victoria is part of our staff, especially because she is always open to learn differents ways to express herself. Similarly, we are happy to know that the students have been enjoying some of the new techniques we have implemented into their classes.


In our Art Studio in Port Moody, Paola Cervantes used oil on canvas and she painted a dog. Paola told us, “Muñeca” is a painting I made as a birthday gift for someone very special. This person recently moved and they would always tell me how they missed their dog and how that dog was their bestfriend through most of their youth. Unfortunately, I knew that it would be nearly impossible for me to find a way for him to be reunited with the dog because of distance and costs. I began to think what was the best way to, in the least, create a reminder of all the good memories he had shared with the dog and then painting a picture of her crossed my mind. This is why I decided to recreate this adorable picture of her.
I experimented with this painting, using both traditional paintbrush techniques as well as finger painting. This was a bit of a challenge because the canvas was not a very large one and it was hard to get the same definition of the hair strokes that you would get with a paintbrush and it was a lot easier to over blend the colours, not to mention that it was impossible to find a glove that fit my hand! Regardless of the obstacles the painting was very amusing to create and it taught me a lot about painting in a different style and finally brought me back to painting an animal which I had been avoiding. 
