A Chat with Legaspi Art School
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
The Legaspi Art School is nestled in a vibrant creative community in East Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Bathed in a wall of windows streaming steady North Light, we offer small intimate sized classes giving students that one-on-one setting conducive to learning the basics of oil-painting.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
We provide the easels, paints, brushes, solvents, paper towels, clean-up supplies, tableaus, slop-sinks, chairs and canvas. Students may bring a subject or photo from which to work from should they desire such. All we ask is you bring a bright eager attitude. Let's Paint!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
"This school stems from my love of making art. I never had an art class until college, and I wished I had a place when I was younger to learn to make art. This is my opportunity to share my art experiences and knowledge, my successes and my failures with anyone with a desire to create art."
What do you love most about your job?
I enjoy seeing a student's expression, especially those who tell me they don't have 'talent', or never had a 'lesson' when they stand back and genuinely marvel at what they've just painted.
