Available spaces


Intensive drawing course for first time students, taught in the Classical Atelier Style of the 19th Century Masters. This atelier-style drawing course mirrors the foundational, level 1 curriculum of classical atelier programs such as Studio Incamminati, where instructor Michela Mansuino studied and currently teaches. In these progressively oriented Saturday art lessons, the fine art objective is to develop drawing and seeing skills for young artists, ranging in age from 8 – 18. First-time students begin by learning the three important moments of the start of a drawing: 1) the envelope, 2) the separation of light from shadow, and 3) the five-value scale. No matter what age, Michela will work with your young artist at their own level with their own personal set-up in their own space. All age students are comfortable in the classroom.
