Rest.Art for Mental Health

I believe that creativity and imagination are a core part of every single human being. We all have it. We all use it on a daily basis. Sadly, often to imagine scary and unpleasant future outcomes. How about we use it differently, and make it serve us better? Come and make art with me, to improve and maintain your inner balance. I love doing my Mental Health art projects - with corporate clients, with the mums from the neighborhood or with a group of holiday goers - we all can benefit from some creative Me Time.

Rest.Art Trips

I take children on day Art Trips to the London galleries and art venues. Tate Modern and Tate Britain, Тhe V&A, Southbank, Royal Academy are some of the places we have visited. We soak in the atmosphere of the great city; we admire the art of great artists. We also have a picnic, explore the area, and practice finding our way around the London Underground. It is a lovely adventure. An art adventure.

Rest.Art Workshops and Parties

Rest.Art Workshops - for your birthday; for Christmas or Mother's Day; for a rainy Saturday. With your buddies on a Friday night with a glass of wine; with your cousins in Germany on Zoom. I love tailoring my workshops to your needs and likes. I would love to meet and get to know you. You would love to get to know and express your creative self.

My Rest.Art

What I do in art comes from my aspirations in life: focusing on the joy, learning to let go, embracing the contrast, showing up constantly, taking imperfect action. Not easy. Bit it goes hand in hand with exploration and adventure, play and mind-traveling – things that come to me easier. So, I team these guys up, I get them to hold hands, I tell them to look after each other. And off we go – to try something new, to make fresh discoveries.

Inspired by the book “The Crayon Box That Talked“, this lesson will show children that when we all work together, the results are much more. Viverra nibh cras pulvinar mattis nunc sed blandit libero. Nibh tellus molestie nunc non blandit massa enim nec.

“Violina has inspired my daughter with her art classes since she was in Year 1. She is now in secondary school and still enjoys and looks forward to her art class every week. Thanks to Violina she has discovered different artists and painters and learned how to use different painting techniques and materials. I would definitely recommend Violina as an art teacher for children and adults (I have attended one of her group workshops and loved it!). She is patient and encourages you to go beyond your comfort zone. With Violina anyone is an artist!”


My daughter absolutely loves art with Violina. She has learnt so much over the years and finds it very relaxing and enjoyable.

She has enjoyed a group classes after school at Foulds School, group classes at the library, art with a friend at our home and numerous trips to London Art Galleries. She never wants to miss a trip, she enjoys them so much. Violina is friendly and knowledgeable and we are always excited to find out what her next project will be. When is your next art trip Violina?


What I love the most (and sometimes what I fear the most) in Violina’s art lessons is how she would take me out of my comfort zone and gently (but consistently) force me to look at and to see things differently.

I love Violina’s pedagogy- she is an incredibly gifted, experienced artist but she has never made me feel as if she would have all the answers, as if there was an expectation to “produce” specific outcome. There is no right or wrong way about art with Violina, instead it is a journey.

I’m confident in saying that people respond to your positive vibes and all notice (and possibly envy😉) your high energy levels.

This energy is creative/effortlessly artistic and very good & inspiring to be around.

Your creativity energises people because you genuinely love what you do.

You will always encourage people to think outside the box and people feel safe with you because you are interested in them and the least judgemental person they will have met.

As an Art Teacher you have allowed my children to explore different arts giving them permission and quiet encouragement to just do it. They have been schooled by you since early years in Primary school and now into secondary school. You are able to relate to all ages and make it interesting for all ages. My girls are confident artists and I only wish I could have been given the same opportunities growing up.
