“My goal is to distill a visual or personal experience into its essence and express my vision in the most eloquent terms—elevating it into the realm of the poetic.”

Srebnik has conducted classes at his own art school, art workshops at over twenty art schools, colleges and other venues; plus his “Artist’s Viewpoint” museum and gallery tours in the U.S. and France; and seminars on marketing artwork. In France, he gave painting demonstrations for the venerable Blockx paints of Belgium.
