    Lovely class - relaxing yet informative. Spending time at the MET every week was definitely a huge plus. Luke was our instructor - so knowledgable and so sweet! Really helped to get his feedback all along on the sketching

    I really enjoyed this acrylic painting class with Claire! Claire did such a great job at providing clear and helpful instructions. I appreciated the feedback and encouragement that was given to each member. I also appreciated Claire's assistance Luke who provided very helpful pointers on my art work. Both of them are great teachers and can tell how much they care about their work. Highly recommend!

    Loved the class and Anna the instructor. Well worth the money. My husband and I enjoyed the time together and learning the basic techniques.
  • 4 Week Session: Beginners Watercolor Painting

    Anonymous review on 2/11/2024
    I really liked Anna as a teacher. She explains things clearly and is very supportive. The one thing that I would have liked to have had on the first day was information about whether she was going to be mostly talking or whether we needed to have paint ready. I wasn’t prepared properly that day since I didn’t know what to expect. I would take more classes with her.

    One of the classed changed locations but no information was sent out initially, the instructor changed almost every class and access to missed classes is not easily attainable or offered. Overall I enjoyed it and have signed up for another class.

  • Beginners Drawing: How to Draw a Portrait

    Reviewed by Sandy A. on 11/19/2023
    Anna was great! She did such a wonderful job showing us exactly how to draw a portrait by using the Loomis grid method. She explained everything so easily. She took time to answer any questions and to allow us to show our work at the end. She was so positive when critiquing our work. I look forward to future classes with Anna Levy.

    I really enjoyed this class. After the last class, when I was walking through the Degas/Manet exhibit with some classmates, we talked about how the class had changed how we could look at the artwork. I feel like I improved as an artist over the class, and I enjoyed how many topics we covered. Liam did a great job as an instructor--he was very supportive and encouraging, and I really appreciated that.

    I had the most wonderful time in this class. Low commitment, high reward. Elizabeth is an amazing teacher and made the whole experience easy and positive. I was skeptical when I signed up for this class because it was virtual but I don’t think that had any negative affect! Would (and might) do again!

    I thoroughly enjoyed this class because I learned about diverse aspects of drawing -- shading, perspective, form, contrast -- in a profound and accessible way. Clare and Alexis are excellent instructors -- informative, compassionate and enthusiastic. They offer the kind of encouragement that makes us look forward to the next class. Thank you so much inspiring me to take more courses in drawing. I would love to take a course at the Met, and especially at the Cloisters, if you offer instruction in the venue.

Review Summary by CourseHorse

Students who have taken classes at The Art Studio NY have praised the instructors and the lessons they recieved. Many students felt that they learned a lot and were able to improve their skills in various artistic techniques. The classes were described as enjoyable, relaxing, and well-paced. Students appreciated the opportunity to learn diverse aspects of drawing and creating artwork. Quotes: 1. "The instructor led the class really well, teaching us different techniques by her doing them herself, and then letting us apply those techniques in our own unique ways. We all left the class with vastly different pieces, showcasing our individuality and unique visions." 2. "I thoroughly enjoyed this class because I learned about diverse aspects of drawing -- shading, perspective, form, contrast -- in a profound and accessible way. Clare and Alexis are excellent instructors -- informative, compassionate, and enthusiastic. They offer the kind of encouragement that makes us look forward to the next class." 3. "I had never used watercolors before and had never taken a painting class. By the end of it, I had discovered a new activity that I could play with, and on a personal level, I recognized my old perfectionism trying to reassert itself. By allowing myself to paint and not be concerned with doing it 'right' or 'perfectly,' I gained not only the enjoyment of experimenting with paints but also a feeling of satisfaction knowing I hadn’t cheated myself out of a lovely experience. Claire was a wonderfully encouraging teacher!"
