Rebecca Schweiger

Founder, Author, Creativity Expert, and Art Instructor

Rebecca Schweiger is an Internationally Renowned Artist, Author of Release Your Creativity: Discover Your Inner Artist with 15 Simple Painting Projects, and the adored Founder of The Art Studio NY. Rebecca has honed her ability to bring out the creative spirit in hundreds of thousands of people, regardless of skill level or age. By the age of only 20, Rebecca's successful art career had begun as her soulful paintings were already being purchased and collected by the world's top art galleries, museums, and collectors.

Rebecca knew how art had transformed her own life and she felt a calling to bring the fulfillment and self-empowerment of creativity into the lives of others. Beyond the traditional "art school" setting that is often rigid and strict, Rebecca knew there was a huge need for a nurturing, encouraging, and positive approach to artistic self-expression. This much-needed creative urban sanctuary filled with warmth, inspiration, and joy didn't exist anywhere... so Rebecca created it herself and The Art Studio NY was born in 2004!

Rebecca started The Art Studio NY in her 1-bedroom New York City apartment, with five students who were total beginners to painting. Today, this #1-rated New York City art studio offers hundreds of monthly painting classes, drawing classes, kids art classes, children's art camps, private art classes, corporate events, creative birthday parties, and more. This home of NYC's best art classes offers a unique and meaningful community for people seeking an uplifting, fun, and freeing creative home to relieve stress, reconnect within, and express themselves authentically through art and in daily life.

“Rebecca’s artwork shows a rare sensitivity to fundamental issues of human concern, which she aptly expresses in her artwork.”
-Elie Wiesel, Nobel Peace Prize Winner
