Volodymyr is a multi-talented young man; an active member of the American Ukrainian Youth Assn., a dancer with the Hromovytsia Ukrainian Dance Ensemble and a talented and developing young artist with dreams of becoming an architect. Recognizing their son’s talents, Volodymyr’s parents encouraged his studies with professional artists including Walter Monastyretsky and Father Jim Vorwoldt at St. Ignatius College Prep.
