Lead Art Teacher

Paintings of Jacob PremoJake Premo is a talented artist and illustrator based in New York City. He brings his encouraging teaching style, his soothing spirit and his passion for art to each of his students at The Art Studio NY. Due to Jake’s success with his traditional artistic training, Jake shares his innate artistic talents, his artistic training and his teaching expertise in all of his classes in the art studio. Particularly passionate about drawing and illustration, Jake describes his art as the following: “I create drawings that utilize my interest in line and composition to explore a personal subject matter shaped by memories and life experiences. The drawings deal with an American, and more broadly, human narrative that is left to be digested and understood by the imagination of the viewer. The result is a drawing that is both realistically rendered, but also an illusion created from line.”

Jake has a wide variety of artistic teaching experience. His love of teaching has led him to instruct art classes for every age from pre-school children to senior citizens. Jake is commitment to thriving as both an art instructor and an artist, and his artistic journey has led Jake to his creative home at the Art Studio NY.

Jake earned his BFA with a concentration in drawing from SUNY Plattsburgh. While in their acclaimed art program, Jake served as Vice President for the Arts while also working as a Studio Assistant for the Painting and Drawing Departments, a position that very few undergraduates are offered. He was a recipient of the Nina Winkel Internship Scholarship and the Tony Pappa Award for Student Excellence. Jake’s artwork is currently included in the Presidential Collection of SUNY Plattsburgh.
