    Thank you for offering such a great virtual drawing class for myself and my team at work. I was skeptic how this would run, but my teacher Amy was fantastic in creating an educational and fun session, and engaging everyone. Loved getting to explore my creativity and taking a well-needed mental break during these times. Thank you!

    The Art Studio NY has been wonderful with online classes. My instructor Chris and the rest of the studio’s team have really made an effort to make online classes work. The online classes have the same levels of intuitive ambience, mindfulness and creativity as studio classes – and I still get to see the progress of my fellow students! In these times of anxiety, restlessness and isolation, these classes have been a lifesaver

    Thank you for keeping my art class alive, and other classes continuing, during this very hard time. I am so impressed how quickly your art studio adapted to the online class world. Our creativity and art are more important than ever, and your art studio gives us the feeling that we are in this together.
    I want to express my gratitude to my teacher, Chris, for his online art classes. He shares so many inspiring techniques, examples, caring instruction, information and everything possible. Knowing Chris, seeing him feels so strengthening, it has this last year of studying with him and I pray it will continue

I took Ada’s watercolor class. She broke down composition well, and I enjoyed mixing my own colors. She even played music! It was such a relaxing experience. I retired recently and was searching for my creative self, and this was absolutely it!
Puja N. commented on 03-Apr-2019 07:07 PM5 out of 5 stars
The watercolor class opened my head and heart. I loved how Ada taught me to look beyond the obvious and how to notice things that I couldn’t see at first. It was very liberating and fun too!
David T. commented on 03-Apr-2019 07:04 PM5 out of 5 stars
At 71, I had to learn something new. This is the first time I’ve actually learned a new disciplines in 30-40 years. It’s very invigorating. I chose this studio because the NYBG was too disciplined, and Art Students League was too loosely structured. I liked the warm approach to work independently on my art with the guidance of a professional artist.

Watercolor painting with Ada was wonderful and very instructive. I loved the friendly atmosphere and enjoyed learning from Ada.

I liked the easy-going atmosphere and the personal attention I received from my instructor. Taking oil painting was a form of stress relief for me and it was really engaging.
Anonymous commented on 03-Apr-2019 06:57 PM5 out of 5 stars
My class made me feel happy and relaxed, and it was a therapeutic experience for me. My instructor Ada was very warm and the place itself is inviting. Classes are two hours long for adult classes, and i wish it was longer! I really appreciate the one-on-one constructive conversations with Ada. This was the best decision I could have made.
Barbara B. commented on 03-Apr-2019 06:54 PM5 out of 5 stars
I wish I could give more than 5 stars!!!!! I loved having Ada as my oil instructor. I felt she inspired me to try new things, and it was an exciting time for me. I look forward to Wednesday evenings all the time!
Emma A. commented on 03-Apr-2019 06:50 PM5 out of 5 stars
I was interested in taking more oil classes, and I took Ada’s Oil class. I learned lots of new techniques like dry brushing, blending, and even “erasing” small mistakes with a Q-tip. I felt the class was very supportive, and gave me a creative outlet I looked forward to every Monday. Thanks Ada!
Anonymous commented on 03-Apr-2019 06:47 PM5 out of 5 stars
My Dare to Oil class with Ada is the highlight of my week! I had fun painting, and learned a valuable lesson in that every accident I made could be painted over. Ada is an amazing teacher and is my top reason for returning to the studio!!!
Marcia M commented on 05-Feb-2019 04:50 PM5 out of 5 stars
The Beginner’s Drawing Class at the Met is a great way to learn to draw and see the Met in a new way. Our instructor, Isaac Ruff was fantastic. He started with a demonstration of drawing basics, then built on that foundation after giving us time to practice each technique. He also went around to every student and provided positive feedback and excellent tips for improvement. I highly recommend this class and Isaac as an instructor!

Five stars is not enough! The Art Studio NY is very welcoming, and the environment the teachers create is so comfortable. I was able to focus and let go of my own troubles weekly, and had time to develop my interest in drawing. My teacher was very informative and honestly just wonderful!

Sophia creates a warm atmosphere for drawing. I took the class to improve upon my own skills and experiment with new media like charcoal, pastels and pencils. I also took Jake’s figure drawing class with a live model-loved it!

I finally had time to make at and I was happy to find this place. It has a great schedule with lots of options for classes, and the teacher was comforting, skillful, patient, and of course knowledgeable! I was really inspired to explore my art at my own pace. I will be returning for more!

I took the oil class and found it to be both fun and serious. I got to explore painting trees on a dark canvas at my teacher’s suggestion, and it turend out really good. I’m happy that this studio is so close to home, I love making art but have no place to do it at my house. Fantastic experience. Very meditative and relaxing.

I recently retired and I wanted to start a new hobby. I found the Art Studio NY and took Jake’s Painting 101 class. He inspired me and helped me build confidence to create art.
Anonymous commented on 13-Dec-2018 03:54 PM5 out of 5 stars
Jake is the epitome of the word “teacher”. He works very hard to get each student to ‘see, to ‘do’-he is gifted. I feel we are fortunate to have him here. He is just so encouraging and dedicated to his students.

My favorite thing about taking a class was the different people and the talent they all brought to the table. I took the class to develop my own talent and grow to become a better artist. I loved my experience and I feel like a better artist in the 8 weeks my class ran for. My experience offered growth, development, inspiration, and i loved that my teacher was patient and understanding.

I enjoyed getting personal attention in my watercolor class with Ada. I learned about different techniques, and value. I finally had time to develop my creativity and meet others who have time available during the day. The Studio is close to where I live so I will be surely returning.

I liked the opportunity to be creative and try something new. I took the watercolor class and it was a very relaxing and fun experience. Plus I got to be creative and learned to be instinctive with my mark-making.

I took the watercolor class with Ada. I decided to take a class there because it was close to my apartment. I also plan on taking the drawing class to get better instruction in charcoal drawing. I found the watercolor class to be customized to my needs, and very relaxed. The teacher played music and it was an overall enjoyable experience. I recommend it highly!

I’ve taken a few classes here and I always find them so relaxing and fun! I look forward to my weekly dose of stress relief, as to the guidance and directional support of my teachers. I am very proud that I am a much better color mixer now!

I took the Intro to Oil class and was worried I would be overwhelmed, Instead, I felt welcomed and made to feel confident. The teacher really eased me into the process and it was fun and inspiring being around all the artwork and artists. My teacher Ada was amazing! She was friendly, knowledgeable, and very supportive. She made me feel safe to paint anything while providing constant encouragement.

I took a class to learn some new skills and I had a great time! My instructor taught me how to mix colors, and even offered information about arts history and culture. It was a nice way of getting stress-relief, and it helped greatly that the Art Srudui NY has access to lots of convenient transportation. The 1, 2, and 3 trains are a block away, and the B train is another block away. It’s very easy to get there!

I took Intro to Oil painting. It was a rewarding and challeneing experience! I liked trying something new and fun and my teacher encouraged me to try painting with a palette knife which was really different! And I got to be creative for once-my career leaves little room for creativity.

I took a Dare to Oil class and I thought it was fun and educational. Plus it was also relaxing-I felt calm and almost meditative. I have stressful job so taking time to paint something of my own choosing is nice and gives me some stress-relief. It was nice to explore oil painting too.

I took a class here becuase it was close to my apartment in the UWS-I was looking for a new hobby to try out, and because I needed some stress relief. I enjoyed learning how to paint and was pleased to see a reasonable result from my efforts. Ada was informative, encouraging, and a very cheerful instructor. Best of all, it was a very peaceful experience, perfect for stress relief!

I took a workshop here and decided to come back to take another class. It’s in a convenient location in the UWS, and I got to try a lot of different mediums and techniques in Jessie’s class. I loved the group I was in, and we had a great time each week! I felt like I had a lot of freedom to make what I wanted while also relaxing and feeling like I belonged.

so the last time i’d tried to draw anything i was about 10! was looking for a creative outlet and found Fear Free Drawing at The Art Studio NY. It has changed my life. i went from a true beginner producing basic work to a more experienced beginner 🙂 producing work i’m really proud of. classes are small and the staff at the studio is so encouraging, supportive and instructive without being destructive. Rebecca, the owner, actively follows students on social media and shares her praise as well. art has now turned into a form of meditation and a safe place where i don’t judge myself as I do normally! well worth your time! and be sure to sign up for class with Michelle. she has a certain way of gathering people to her that don’t want to leave!

Trieu G. commented on 19-Jul-2017 08:41 PM5 out of 5 stars

I am so happy I found this place! I have not ever drawn anything my whole life (stick figures for UML don’t count). I wanted something for a beginner to start me off, not a full-blown art education. I Yelped, of course, and after looking at a dozen studios, I chose this one because they had a “Fear Free” drawing class. How appropriate.

Well, the business shares its space with an apartment complex; it sits in the basement. For a claustrophobic person, I was a bit nervous at first as I walked in and saw the office right behind the door. The 2 art rooms are a bit cramped and not at all fancy as I imagined them to be after seeing them in movies, but guess what? This place really grows on you! The owner and instructors are so welcoming, especially to newbies like me who don’t even know how to hold a pencil. They not only encourage you, but provide you with instructions catered to your own skill level and comfort zone. So after I stopped breathing for a minute, I raised my hands and asked for help.

There are numerous different classes for every level. You can purchase all your supplies there. What’s great for folks that don’t know what’s needed, they actually bundle all you need and list them on the course site. I basically knew what to expect the first day I was there. Make sure to read the instructions that is emailed to you after you sign up.

When you get to the studio, ring the door bell once. Someone will let you in. Just sit and wait. The elevator person will flag you momentarily when the elevator is headed down to the studio. That’s it. Enjoy!

That really challenged my artistic ability in a good way!

I was able to paint in such a warm enviroment! Very collegiate atmosphere and very able & friendly instructors. My instructor was super nice, warm and friendly. She was able to give solid suggesstions without being overbreaking. She encourages you to try different things at your own pace, which was a great plus.

This is a great class for people who just want to explore their own strengths and weaknesses, experiment with various techniques and media, and have as much or as little guidance as needed to work through your individual projects. Jake is great at giving each person the attention they need and the class is a great mix of people. I love it and hope to do it again.

The Art Studio NY is such a great time – and I’ve really never considered myself an artistic person. First of all, the vibes are friendly and the free wine sets the tone beautifully. Second, it is totally laid back with instructors who really customize their approach for each client. They keep the classes intimate so they are able to cater to each person’s needs and help them reach their own creative style. It is not a lecture or seminar by any means, but rather VERY hands on and positive.

Hands down, The Art Studio NY is by far the number 1 place to take art classes in NYC!!

Channel your inner artist! I always thought that I have some latent artistic talent and Rebecca let’s me find it. I’m not headed to MOMA yet, but I’m gaining an appreciation for materials and methods. Definitely worthwhile and besides, they let you drink there – isn’t that how the masters did it?
