Now, the studio is located in a gorgeous light airy space right around the corner on Water Street. We are blessed to be serving our beloved community of DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, Vinegar Hill, Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Downtown Brooklyn, Lower Manhattan, Tribeca, the Financial District, Seaport + beyond!

  • Storytelling Illustration for Teens: Comic Book + Graphic Art Novel Art (Ages 9-17)

    Anonymous review on 2/21/2024
    I didn’t learn anything. The instructor asked me to create a main character and that was it. I am a serious artist who is looking for inspiration and guidance to elevate in my skill set and explore potential career pathways. I could’ve stayed at home and used YouTube and would’ve been taught more. I feel bad my mom wasted $80 and I learned absolutely nothing.

  • Abstract Art Journey: Paint How U Feel

    Reviewed by Chris C. on 4/14/2023
    Hello! I was lucky enough to have private instruction when I was the only student to show up. My teacher was very skilled and knowledgeable about abstract art and painting. I thoroughly enjoyed learning the art and practicing with a canvas and paints provided by the instructor (the provided canvas was a welcome surprise, as the class description said we would need to supply our own.) My only concern is that the class was a little cost prohibitive at 80 for a 2 hour session, but with rising cost of space materials and instruction I totally understand the need for a heftier price. Still, I enjoyed myself and have new ideas to ponder with my main filmmaking craft now after learning more about abstract art.

  • Beginner Drawing + Illustration Techniques for Adults

    This class was a great! I am a beginner and joined the class to work on my drawing skills as a hobby. The instructor was very patient and engaging and gave me personal suggestions and encouragement, which was really helpful. We first did still figure exercises and then moved onto classic techniques for drawing facial features. It was a small class which cultivated a supportive environment among myself the other students. Overall, I really enjoyed the course. I feel motivated to work on techniques we reviewed on my own and will definitely return for another class when able.
  • Abstract Art Journey: Paint How U Feel

    Anonymous review on 12/9/2022
    Wonderful class, great teachers & guidance - however quite pricey. I would come to more individual classes if the pricing and schedule were more flexible with the course. Hard to justify $80 for one night of painting when most pieces take several nights to complete.
