the Teaching Studios of Art
In 2009, I founded an art school devoted to teaching traditional techniques to artists of all ages and skill levels on the North Shore of Long Island. These techniques have been proven, over centuries, to be the most effective at helping people become better artists and make beautiful work.
I own and run the school, but it's hardly about me. In the 7+ years we have been open, I've hired over 30 faculty to teach classes and workshops. Our faculty are trained professionals who have achieved a level of excellence in their own practice that qualifies them to teach others. Our classes are small, our facilities are excellent, and students receive much personal attention. Our clients are our community, and we take their needs seriously. This client-centered approach has garnered us much press attention. In 2016, we were nominated for the "Best of Long Island" in the art school category.
