  • When did you start taking art classes at The Art Studio NY, and why did you begin to take classes (what was going on in your life at the time)?
    I began taking classes at The Art Studio NY over a year ago.  At the time, I was working as a professional medical illustrator. My desire has always been to paint and to do something less "technical" than I was used to. Coming in every week from Connecticut has allowed me to concentrate on my painting and put everything else aside. 

  • What class/es did you take, and what classes are you currently taking?
    I have been taking oil painting with Rebecca and several times with Jake. I have just completed my last session with Rebecca.

    What makes your experience at The Art Studio NY unique and memorable? 
    It is a unique experience for me because it allows me to break away from my fear of making something perfect without flaws and my fear of painting. It is a very freeing feeling and an important tool for me.

    What is something you have achieved because of your art classes that you never thought you could?
    I'm painting! I work on paintings in the city at The Art Studio NY and I work on paintings at home. I love painting

  •     What are you most proud of when it comes to your artistic journey? 
        I actually enjoy the fact that I get lost in my work. I don't have a deadline that forces me to complete something at a specific time....I just let it go!

  • What fears have you overcome, on and off the canvas, since starting to paint?
    Avoiding the "blocks" that used to occur when I would start a painting and not know where to go next. It has given me perspective and the ability to stand back and then continue....

    How have your art classes allowed you to relax and relieve stress? 
    I come into the studio, I forget everything....stress extinguished!!!

    How have your art classes changed your life, either in your art or your everyday life?
    The classes have started me in a new direction with my art, a direction full of new surprises and a stronger self identity.

    What advice would you tell a total beginner who feels afraid of taking an art class or they feel they "have no talent"?
    Try it. The most that can happen is that you don't like it....but I know that you will!

Whether you started painting at age 1 or age 100, you can always learn and take away something from the process of creating. It really doesn't matter if you started using crayons or oils, pencils or brushes, or even if you began finger painting! The process of making art makes you FEARLESS. You may not have noticed how creativity is a form of risk taking, so we've rounded up some ideas. Feel free to send us more ways that ART has made you fearless. Contact us

“When you draw an object, the mind becomes deeply, intensely attentive, and it’s that act of attention that allows you to really grasp something, to become fully conscious of it.” - Milton Glaser, Drawing Is Thinking 

MEMORY: Drawing is the oldest language. Even our language is composed of letters drawn on paper to form ideas. Not only is drawing a form of literacy, it also helps your memory! A study from Journal of Applied Cognitive Psychology found that participants that doodled were 29% more likely to remember mundane information.

What better way to bond then over paints, canvas, and brushes! After close to a 100 corporate events at The Art Studio NY, we love to see how everyone that participates has a great time. Our creative corporate events can come to you, or hosted in our studio on the Upper West Side. Often, with a corporate event we get a range of levels and ages, but everyone comes together, laughs, makes a mess, and leaves happy!

Do you remember your first art class? Maybe you got to play with some crayons or finger paint. You felt free, excited, maybe even a little nervous. You were thinking, "What is this odd texture?" "What should I draw?" You went for it! There were no expectations to be perfect, no rules, except maybe trying not to spill all the glue. You were having a great time, and no matter what you created, it was perfect in your eyes. What happened as you got older? There were more rules. You were taught to color within the lines, that an apple can't be purple, it's red or green. Basically, your imagination was slowly being "corrected."
