Florentine Fine Art tradition on Manhattan's Upper East Side
Our classes are built on the traditional method practiced by nineteenth century masters, and revived in the twentieth century by Daniel Graves, Michael John Angel, and Charles Cecil. Housed on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, we are committed to upholding the techniques studied in Florence Italy. Each course is centered on the human form and designed to provide every student with a clear and informed foundation, which can be applied to all future projects and workshops.
We are a natural light studio which is ideal for seeing color and value, as well as training the eye to the subtle movements of the model and adapting to light shifts as the day progresses. All courses will be taught with live models (nude for figure painting and drawing.)
It is our goal to provide all students with the tools necessary to propel their artwork forward and continue to uphold the traditional method that has been used to create some of the world’s greatest masterpieces.
