Helmed by internationally exhibited contemporary painter Rebecca Schweiger, The Art Studio NY helps artisans of all ages and abilities unleash their imagination with a plenitude of classes and workshops taught by expert instructors. Small class sizes ensure one-on-one attention, with instruction tailored to suit each student’s interests and experience. In the Drawing at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: 3-Week Taster class, charcoal-slinging pupils draw inspiration from a cornucopia of masterpieces on Tuesday afternoons as savvy pedagogues elucidate techniques of line, space, and shading ($149). Immortalize the handsome likenesses of Central Park’s squirrel nobility during the alfresco, two-hour outdoor beginner drawing class on Sunday afternoons ($39), or hone acrylic-painting techniques such as color mixing, texture, and realistic mustache graffiti with the BYOB Beginners' Painting: 2-Night Bite in Painting class, a tutorial fueled by self-conveyed grog and brush-based camaraderie. Atrophied creative muscles can also build up pigment-slinging brawn with a four-week Self-Expression Taste class, which employs a series of artistic exercises to hot-wire sluggish originality with subject matter such as landscapes, emotional content, and racy photos of the Mona Lisa.

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 11 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 more than 70 workshops and classes for all ages in painting and drawing landscapes and tastefully nude fruit. The Art Studio NY has received multiple press mentions, and also hosts corporate events, birthday and bachelorette parties, kids and adult art classes, and many of their classes are for total beginners. In addition to this, they have been on ABC, NBC, and The Kardashians.
