Ukrainian drawing school Artym's Lab

in Portugal


Let's get to know each other

Hello, my name is Yulia Artym. I am 37 years old, a professional artist, and a teacher of painting and drawing. I have been making a living through painting for over 20 years, with more than 10 solo exhibitions and participation in 3 international projects to my name. Since 2015, I have been a member of the Artists' Union of Ukraine.

In 2013, I opened my own studio in Odessa, which over time grew into a large art studio. Currently, I have moved to Portugal and continue to teach painting and create artworks here in Oeiras. I invite you to my home, to a small workshop-studio, for intimate creative sessions and art classes. The groups are limited to 4 people, and I also offer individual sessions.

Below, you can choose a class and make a reservation for it. Looking forward to meeting you at the workshop!

our story
How did it all begin?
May 13 is our anniversary... We count it from the day we opened the studio on Rishelievska Street, back in 2013. Many transformations have occurred with us since then! Quarantine pushed us towards growth, and the war opened us up to very active volunteering.
Speaking in numbers, in 10 years, we've painted on canvases with a total area of over 1250m² and used almost 3500 tubes of oil paint. From this volume of paintings, one could build a cozy estate filled with expressive textures of impasto and smooth strokes of classical painting.
Counting paper, pencils, and brushes is trickier... and we won't do that at all. The most accurate count will be the happy eyes of our clients after classes and courses. And there are many of them! And with each passing day, even more.
During this time, we've recorded about 45 video lessons and 5 original art courses. Our wonderful designer created a website for them: Two English teachers translated almost all of our video content into English and Ukrainian.
Thank you for choosing us and staying with us for many years! Together, we make the world of art and artistic practice more conscious, strong, and friendly! Ahead, only together and forward! Thanks to everyone who has been, is, and will be in our team.
And from December 2023, we have a branch in Oeiras, Portugal.
