Helmed by internationally exhibited contemporary painter Rebecca Schweiger, The Art Studio NY LLC helps artisans of all ages and abilities unleash their imagination with introductory drawing classes taught by expert instructors. During each session, the staff supplies groups of 12 with a live figure model, materials, and complimentary glasses of wine, which combine for relaxed lessons on drawing the human body, including techniques for creating lines, dimension, shading, volume, and composition with pencil and charcoal. The two-hour class wraps up in one day, and instructors divvy the five-hour class into three hours of instruction and two hours of open studio and the seven-hour class into four hours of instruction—split between a choice of one or two days—and three hours in the open studio. Surrounded by other artists in the instructorless open studio, students can practice newly developed skills and flex their creative biceps.

Internationally exhibited contemporary painter Rebecca Schweiger could let her dreamy forest landscapes and densely textured abstract oils speak for themselves. Instead, she constantly reaches out to other budding artists, helping them represent their own authentic voices in paint, through 10 years in her Upper West Side studio, The Art Studio NY. Schweiger's work with pupils in locations from Costa Rica to Israel to Texas inspired her to open her own studio, where she and her team of instructors lead students through workshops in painting and drawing landscapes and tastefully nude fruit.
