“In Klara’s guidance of our discussions, she helped to increase our ability to look at artworks more deeply and critically. I really appreciate Klara’s ability to comment on my work both on a technical and conceptual level.” -Nan Herbert

Small class sizes ensure an intimate class setting with plenty of one on one instruction. You begin with focusing on foundation skills in drawing, painting, and sculpture and then broaden your skill set with printmaking, abstraction, collage, and watercolor. The majority of the learning takes place in the studio through the personalized guidance of the 7 teaching artists.

Studio Arts Intensive teaching artists represent the highest standards of professionalism, creativity and experience. Under their guidance, you will find inspiration, support and community while building foundational skills, and developing techniques and best practices to serve you for a lifetime.
