Alexander Kaletski

Mini Monet Taught by Alexander Kaletski

Frost Valley YMCA is offering a camp session this year called Mini Monet with special guest instructor and renowned artist Alexander Kaletski. Your child will have the opportunity to learn hands on with one of the best!

Alexander Kaletski escaped Soviet Russia in 1975 to evade the creatively oppressive restrictions enforced on artists at that time. During his first years in America, Kaletski was without money to buy paint or canvas, yet he had no shortage of determination. The artist reclaimed cardboard boxes and other disposable materials to create his works. He remains inspired by this process today and continues to engage with unconventional materials. Kaletski is represented by Anna Zorina Gallery in New York; his work is on permanent display at the Claryville Art Center. 

Alexander’s instruction for Mini Monet campers will be based on his cardboard collage works and will include having them build a sculptural structure. Frost Valley is excited to welcome Alexander and is confident he will inspire the Mini Monet campers.
