Olga's love of watercolor is apparent in her paintings & teachings. If you are looking to paint realism, you will need to look elsewhere...Olga encourages her students to explore this fascinating medium & overcome fears of being 'perfect'

I learned so much during this class and it was so much fun to see the teacher (Olga) presenting those different water color techniques while giving examples for the use of each one of them. It inspired me instantly - thank you for this great class and the way you explained it.

This is an AWESOME class. Olga is very optimistic and enthusiastic about water coloring. I am a beginner and prior to taking this class I was a bit intimidated about using water colors--now I feel encourage, capable and just as excited about water color and using my imagination and techniques learned through Olga as she does. I'm excited about posting my water color projects.

Keep Learning, trying and doing

Great class! She seemed a very cool teacher, and got this hippie-beach vibe! Now I've understood why my watercolor painting is a bit murky... and the colors are not that brilliant. I really like the style of how she makes her paintings, I wish to incorporate that with own :)

I have to admit Ms. Peregood's teaching is a bit quirky and a few times borderline awkward, but the content she presents with a positive attitude is outstanding. I do not need to sit for a thorough explanation or history of techniques, I need someone to be straightforward and show me so I can begin to experiment, and that is exactly what Olga does.

I help people to escape into enjoyment of painting

To make the viewer of your paintings be b-b-blown away...

  1. It's not about brushmiles.
  2. It's not about having a strong talent.
  3. It's not about painting arsenal.
  4. You must deliver what they want
  5. You can paint with opposite hand. You can spill your cup of tea on your painting...
  6. ...But if you forgot about intrigue, illusions and how viewer mind works, you are ordinary not extraordinary artist

I'm Olga. Originally from Belarus live in Canada.

Doing science (not art) with water, color and paper. Responsible to teach how to hold on air while painting.

I help lost, tired, bored artists to breathe a fresh air, paint non-stop, paint with confidence, style and freedom and do it gracefully using my gentle sleep talk down feminine voice.

I always painted. No matter what life brought me school, university web-designer carrier, own publishing company I felt like I was doing stuff which keeps me away from painting what I love to paint.

I had a few hints

I was called to. My 1st painting was sold when I was 5. My friends make a fair and took some of my paintings for "assortment"

In grade 1

in first day our school art teacher took a look at my painting journal which was laying on my desk. She ask one question "Is it yours?" and imidietly took it away. Next day there was my first solo exhibition at school.

In grade 11 [ final ]

me and my friend were asked to replace art teacher for grade 6. I was staying in front of sea of curious eyes and I look at my friend like "What now?" and she look back like: "Go ahead! We escaping school today!" We hold one day replacing teacher in all classes. After all "my students" followed me like they were my dogs. Thankfully it was last week before we finish school. I was convinced it's quite challenging to interact with people in this way 😆

Holly, Internet!

I'm blessed to live with my family. I'm animal lover, flower girl and innocent child. I live far from home and escape from loneliness being in other country by painting
