I’m very much into my online art lessons this season, meaning I don’t currently go to my students’ houses, nor they come to me but we meet at a common place online. Where as you might be asking how is an art lesson so anchored into using art materials and a hands-on approach even possible to take place online? This is how I do it. Watch this short 3 minute video below the text and find out what it looks like when I teach online and how the image I’m transmitting appears on your screen. If you would like to have a free 15 min Zoom or Skype chat to try what my art lessons are like, and to see how we get on, message me on Instagram @silviakrupinska or leave a comment under the blog post, I’ll get back to you.

Next time, I’ll publish a post about the top ten things you need to do to prepare for an online art lesson with me and some of the rules to follow to achieve the best online art experience possible. See you soon. Thanks for coming back!

Art lessons have picked up again, I’m getting plenty of new enquiries so I bring this update on my blog to tell you what art tutoring I offer and how you can get a ‘satisfaction guaranteed or your money back’ on your first session and what is a ‘Haselcan’! But first things first.

I am a DBS checked art tutor. You are safe with me, I hold a public liability insurance which covers my art lessons and art workshops. I studied at Central Saint Martins, MA Art and Science and before BA Fine Art at Chelsea College of Art, both part of the UAL.

It is easy-peasy to book a tutorial or a workshop with me. Please contact me on silviakrupinska(at)gmail(dot)com or use this link to a tutoring platform Tutorfair, where you can book me directly. My fee varies so please get in touch for more. And remember, if you book via the Tutorfair website or their app, your first lesson is satisfaction guaranteed. Each time you buy a Tutorfair lesson with me a small donation is made to the Tutorfair Foundation!

I absolutely love teaching which is a complementary part of my own art practice as a sculptor. It gives me a sense of reward and fulfilment. I love my job. When I was a girl I had, and still have, a deep admiration for my art teachers. Their patience, creativity, and utmost kindness inspired me to become one.

What art tutoring do I offer? 

I specialise in one-to-one tuition, where I visit my clients directly, but mostly online these days. I also go to nurseries to teach my youngest art students, babies from 16 months up to preschool age. I conduct my art workshops in art venues, during art exhibitions, art markets and at universities for people of all ages, needs and abilities. To find out more about a spectrum of my teaching experience, please click the following link here.

Individual art tutoring, one-to-one (online 1 hour, in-person 2 hour sessions)
I offer art tutoring online via Skype, or where conditions and distance allows, I see my art tutees in person also. I’ve had over 30 private clients in over 300 hours of personal art tuition. I help with getting ready for exams or introduce some new art techniques to students that want to get better at their art, or just want to discover something for themselves. Whether it is learning a measured drawing technique or some unusual art and science explorations, we always have lots of fun.
Find me on a leading tutoring website Tutorfair and read some insightful reviews from my clients there.

Parent’s comments:
“Silvia also trained Eve in observational drawing which is an important part of the Art Scholarship applications for the 11+ entrance exams. She helped my daughter to record her ideas and processes in a sketchbook and helped her to put together her art portfolio for presentation in Art Scholarships.”

“Thanks to Silvia’s tutoring, Eve was invited to participate in four different art assessments which resulted in the offer of one Art Scholarship.”

Early years art (groups up to 10, 30 min class time)
I have 3 years experience in early years art. My nursery and pre-school pupils enjoy our art lessons so far in four London nurseries for a weekly session. I plan, deliver and evaluate for these extra-curricular activities so teachers and parents can follow their child’s development. It is always sad to see the little ones move on to a big school, but some of them would have attended up to three years of the art explorations with me. I always miss them!

As always it’s been a pleasure to have you on my blog and other online content. Before you go, if you book with me and in the process you mention this code word ‘Haselcan‘ I’ll give your first 30-minute-trial-lesson for a price of 15 minutes.

What is a ‘Haselcan’? A haselnut and a pecan together, of course! Cheerio!

Borranco – made by water flow is an art exhibition and interactive clay event. Borranco presents a new series of clay prints on paper and drawings I made in collaboration with Almerian forest ants. You’ll be able to get your hands dirty and make your own clay prints, other small objects and contribute to a large-scale wall piece as well.
Borranco, inspired by Spanish word ‘barranco’ (ravine in English), is a geographical term describing a very deep, narrow valley with steep sides which have been produced by flashes of water during flash-floods. ‘Barrancos’ have been a huge inspiration for me during my summer art residency at Joya AiR set in an alpine desert of Almeria. Come and learn more about my experience of this environmental art residency in an informal setting of the Unit 3 Projects gallery.

If you have any issues with finding the gallery, call me on 07941006264. I recommend taking a District line tube to Bromley-by-Bow, all other routes are suspended this coming weekend, unfortunately.

A summer spent in Spain, in the heart of a national park, removed half an hour drive from any nearest town and shop! It was like a dream. But it wasn’t a dream but a reality! I went to Joya: AiR, an environmental artist residency set in between the ravines of white sedimentary rock walls full of fossils and fields, almond trees, and bee-eaters. Oh boy, I had some space to breathe! I love London, but I was a happy bunny to be away from it.

I was asked to write a little summary of what I did at Joya, at the end of my three weeks there. Here is a little excerpt, please follow up the link to continue reading.

“I’ve flown to Joya: AiR from London with an open mind. I wanted to relax, refresh and escape from my city life. Having done an art residency at Walthamstow Wetlands in London which stores around 40% of the water that will arrive in peoples’ taps after cleaning I wondered, what the landscape could be like in a desert environment? I wanted to know how the land and its’ habitat is affected by the driest spells of Andalusien summer.”

Sketch Abstract Return 14 Billion 2019 by Krupinska 011 800px

This opening quote is a catcher for you to continue reading and it is also an explanation of what 14 Billion represents in the title of my latest art installation (a commission by UAL Estates team for UAL Green Week). I’m not talking about money here when I say Abstract Return but more referring to a journey of water. True, the money association is strong when talking about water, one of the most valuable natural resources and commodities, but that’s for another day. There are eleven stages in the water processes. Starting with water’s abstraction from a river or a well to its return back to a river. But before I get too technical I’ll finish this paragraph and say what a pleasure it has been to make this piece! A big thank you to the staff of the London Museum of Water & Steam where I’ve been doing some of my research.

The eleven stages I mention are interpreted in my work by eleven plaster paintings or panels, hanging on the steel structure. They are:

With a winter frost and wind, an art commission has landed on my art studio doorstep. I’ve been interested in the water filtration processes since my Walthamstow Wetlands Art residency (2015-2016) and my dream project based on these dynamic systems is now happening!
Wateraid‘s Learning Department approached me at the end of 2017, however, I’ve kept it quiet as things have been developing. Now, after a couple of research visits at Thames Water’s Coppermills Water Treatments Works and at the Royal Air Force museum where the installation will feature during a week-long of events celebrating the 75th anniversary of Dambusters in May 2018, I’m firmly engaged in the process and very excited. To read a blog post about water filtering research visit at Coppermills click here.

WaterAid is a wonderful charity and I’ve learned from them so much about water. This video summarises what they are all about. I’ll be mentioning them in my work in progress posts a lot.



What am I creating?
I’m designing a concept and a sculptural interactive installation based on the principles of a sand dam. I can reveal the installation will carry three conceptual elements (water, concrete wall/dam, and sand/sediments), see the image below.

Three concepts for installation, S Krupinska copyright 2018


While I’m creating a physical sculpture and its concept, I wanted to bring another layer of interaction into the RAF museum’s outdoor space. I’ve invited Danny Saul to collaborate with me. Danny Saul is a London-based composer and sound artist whose work explores connections between sound and space, and between (real-world) recorded sounds and synthesized electronic sounds. How very exciting! Welcome, Danny! Learn more about his work on his website.

Sketchbook insights, ideas for learning and exploring a sand dam.


I’m going to return to sketching to finalize some ideas, but I will share with you more work in progress soon. Thank you for reading this blog post and I’m looking forward to your comments. See you on May 19th between 11am to 3pm at Collindale’s RAF museum during a wonderful Dambusters anniversary week!

Keith from WaterAid and Silvia at Coppermill Thames Water 01

Keith from WaterAid and me at Coppermills Treatments Works Thames Water site, Dec 2017.

In this rather geeky post, I’m sharing what I’ve learned during a research visit at Coppermills Water Treatment Works, Thames Water site, filtering around 30% of London’s drinking water. This secure site has its gates firmly shut to most passers-by (I’ve tried to get in to see what’s going on there before). I feel very special to have been able to go there this time! I need to say a big thank you to Deena from Thames Water and Keith from WaterAid to grant me access to the site, on which they both accompanied me in December 2017.

There are several stages of water filtration, here I share some knowledge learned during our research trip at the Coppermills Water Treatment Works.

Rapid gravity filters trigger the cycle of the filtering. The whole process lasts 12 hours from start to finish, and then it continues to water service reservoirs. Rapid gravity filters are large open top tanks of passing water. Any big particles such as grass, feathers and other bits that haven’t been stopped by grids on their way from Thames Water reservoirs to Coppermills are removed. This process takes 15 minutes, hence its name, rapid. The rapid gravity filters are maintained by reverse flashing the water flow upwards and the large particles are directed and diverted out of the filter where they are caught and removed.

Coppermill Plant, Thames Water Site, Dec 2017 01

Rapid Gravity Filters at Coppermills.

Ozone gas is added at the second stage of filtering and it is injected into the water to remove pesticides and organic material. The process of ozonization has antibacterial properties and the water leaves in two separate streams and is directed to, for me the most interesting stage of water filtration, Slow Sand Filtration.

Slow Sand Filtration works on large-scale filter beds. There are over 33 slow sand filter beds at the Coppermills site. It was fascinating to watch how the workers immaculately layered the sand in one of the filter beds and sitting in a large vehicle leveled the elements. The birds try to help too, leaving their mark.

After the water passes through very fine, around 400-micron stainless steel mesh screens (2×3 m large), it heads for about 3 hours to the final disinfection area. My words couldn’t describe this process better than the explanation on Thames Water website: “Chlorine is dosed at the end of treatment before the water is sent into supply to destroy harmful micro-organisms. The disinfection process is performed in specially designed contact tanks, which contain a series of baffles. The tanks ensure that the chlorine remains in good contact with the water for a set amount of time, to ensure effective disinfection before it is sent into the distribution network.”

The water after this stage is sent to service reservoirs, each area has their own enclosed water storage facility. I’ve investigated where is my nearest Service Pumping Station. I found it in Streatham. The following link takes you to it.

I was commissioned by Manor House Development Trust to bring one of my art workshops to the Hidden River Festival in London this weekend. The festival is situated beside a spectacular Woodberry Wetlands Reserve and New River, which carries a long stream of history, first dating back to 1613.

Draw with sand and create new rivers workshop grabbed the attention of children and their parents, taking part and learning a new art technique. I bring you some images from the day. We all had lots of fun.

If you would like to include my workshop in your festival or an event, let me know on silviakrupinska(at)gmail(dot)com, and we can discuss it further. Thank you.


What are you doing this Saturday from 12-18:30? Hidden River Festival is taking place in a marvelous location beside the New River Path, near the East and West reservoirs at Woodberry Down. The Hidden River Festival is a free annual waterside event, giving local people a chance to enjoy a mix of live music, food stalls, art and fun for all the family with the aim of connecting the communities living alongside the New River, which runs through Hackney and Haringey. The festival is organized by Manor House Development Trust and the schedule looks pretty busy. 🙂


I’ll be present at the festival as I’m doing a Draw with Sand – Create New Rivers workshop and selling small works of art, drawings, prints and KAJ – Krupinska Abalone Jewellery. This will be a good opportunity for any first-time art buyers to start a collection with an affordable piece of art.


I feel for our rivers, the veins of our lives and society. I’m incurably curious about where water comes from and how it is cleaned, appearing by magic in our taps! My Draw with Sand – Create New Rivers workshop gives us an opportunity to learn about our local water spaces and where tap water in Woodberry Down comes from. We are lucky to have Woodberry and Walthamstow Wetlands Nature Reserves on our doorstep. You can talk to me about your experiences walking outdoors while you learn to draw with sand and make your very own river drawing. You can get inspired by the maps of local water shapes, or simply create a phantasy river or lake from shades of sand and abalone mother of pearl flakes.

Competition for all participants: There will be a chance for all taking part to win a mini mountain lake artwork. I’ll pull a winner out of a hat at 5pm the same day.

I’ll be sharing a gazebo with a fantastic bio artist and friend Mellissa Fisher! Her workshop titled Microbial Me will give you a chance to create a microbial self-portrait! There is going to be so much happening. You can check out the festival program just below.

It’s been fun this weekend. I was transported back to our MA Art and Science Degree Show at CSM, as I was editing a video to be part of my application for International Student Innovation Award. Wish me luck. Hopefully, this 4 min video sketch will give an insight of what the Studio Hide installation was like at CSM. Until it is installed somewhere else 🙂

What’s next? I’ll be presenting a Pecha Kucha style presentation at Walking Artists’ event at Somerset House this summer on Sunday 17 July during 11.30 – 12.30 slot. Look for more in the links below. Drop in if you have time, it should be fun!

My reflections about Studio Hide are published in Waltham Forest independent newspaper. Please download the article via this link and head to page 6. Cheers!

Waltham Forest Echo Studio Hide snap


Walthamstow Wetlands and their surroundings are undergoing some major upgrades and natural habitat improvements before it opens for free to visitors in spring 2017. There is a broken hide in Walthamstow Wetlands that is awaiting a repair as well. I was able to peak into it. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve imagined what it would be like if I had an art studio in the wetlands. The broken hide would be a perfect art studio!

Broken hide by Krupinska 2 10Broken hide by Krupinska 3 10

Until I make this happen and I draw up my plans for an existing art studio in the wetlands, I’m making an installation called Studio Hide as part of Unfolding Realities MA art and Science Degree Show. This is situated in the Street of Central Saint Martins, in the heart of the what used to be a Grain Store for arriving trains at Kings Cross. The new Studio Hide artwork has started to take shape this week, as we’ve commenced installing our Degree Show. Studio Hide contains materials (#materialcollection) I’ve found in Walthamstow Wetlands. All twigs, egg shells, sticks have been found by me and picked from the ground during the different times of the year, over past 9 months.

No trees have been harmed in the production of my Studio Hide.

My aim is to share with a wide audience visiting the Degree Show, what is the meaning of my local landscape. This urban nature reserve contains ten large water reservoirs from which 30% of Londoners get their drinking water supply from. It is beautiful and rich, it provides me with bottomless inspiration. 

Each time I visit Walthamstow Wetlands I find something new. For example, yesterday I spotted for the first time a yellow-bellied slider turtle in Coppermill Stream (pictured below) and I was able to get really close to a cheeky cormorant winding up a hard working coot couple, keeping up their nest.

UNFOLDING REALITIES presents the work of 20 MA Art and Science graduates at Central Saint Martins. Since its inception in 2011 this pioneering course, the first of its kind, has provided a unique global platform for students across a wide range of fields, on which they extend and contribute to the expanding interdisciplinary branch of knowledge – Art and Science. Responding to this fast emerging territory for collaborative practice which redefines creativity across disciplines, UNFOLDING REALITIES practitioners from fine art, design, photography, neuroscience, art history, mathematics, choreography and architecture have been inspired by their individual connections and observations of the world and the challenge of interrogating this beyond disciplinary boundaries.




90 years ago, a fossilized cast of a skull (endocranium) was found in Ganovce, Slovakia. The most important Slovakian treasure of similar kind, dating back 120 thousand years. I’m from Poprad near Ganovce and I’ve always been interested in this story in connection to the local mineral springs. The story describes a Neanderthal female getting dizzy breathing poisonous gasses from the Hradok Spring and dying.

Two of my artworks in One Country Three Worlds exhibition at Embassy of the Slovak Republic in London (20 Apr-27 May) celebrate the fossil and the place. The article link offers some further reading in the Slovak language.

The image below is the place where the Neanderthal fossil was found by stonemason Koloman Koki – Ganovce near Poprad.

A year ago Mira Varg and I created a sculpture for Embassy of the Slovak Republic in London. This post from earlier describes it. On Monday 11 May a very interesting invitation arrived from the same Embassy. Artists Mira Varg, Mandy Hreus and I, all taking MA Art and Science and Slovakian, were invited to exhibit there, with a little over a week till the opening! How could we refuse such a challenge? Those had been amongst the most exciting days this year for me. The planning, the install of the show has given us a pretty good boost and practice for approaching Unfolding Realities degree show in May.

One Country Three Worlds (20 April–27 May 2016) is an exhibition by three Slovak artists living and creating in the UK. Hreus, Krupinska and Varg met while studying for their MA in Art & Science at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London and show their work at the Embassy of the Slovak Republic for the first time, while simultaneously preparing for their degree show in May. One Country Three Worlds is a celebration of three different interpretations of the world by three creative minds originating from the same country – Slovakia.

While embracing their differences, the three artists have something in common. They are intrigued by the individual and collective perception and experience of our surroundings. Varg is reflecting on variations of realities and how we humanly observe them, Krupinska is focusing on the texture of landscape and hidden places, and Hreus is investigating the visible and invisible electromagnetic spectrum in relation to consciousness and pure expansive awareness. These interpretations unfold in a palette of media, ranging from photography, print to sculpture and installation.”
