“ At Milan Art Institute, not only have I learned how to paint and draw, but also the “ins and outs” of the art business and what it takes to build an art career. Elli is a generous and brilliant teacher. She has a clear and profound method in teaching students how to find their voice as an artist. As an Art Mastery student, I feel inspired and equipped to begin my career as an artist. ”
