Workshops offer instruction in classical drawing and painting to students of all skill levels. Students learn the principals of drawing and painting and then build upon those concepts to create finished works ready for their portfolios. 


Friday Morning Model Sessions

Join us Friday mornings from 9am - 12 to draw and paint the figure from life. Poses and staged environments last for the entire 3-hour period and are carried over for 3 consecutive weeks. This gives artists a unique chance to complete an oil painting or more in-depth drawing to add to their portfolios. No reservation or appointment required. The doors open at 8:30. First come, first serve for easels around the model.

Join the ZAFA mailing list to stay informed about upcoming model sessions.


Private Lessons

Sign up for personalized, one-on-one instruction on the principals of drawing and painting with William Zwick. Sign up for weekly lessons, or reserve a block of lessons focused on a larger project. This is a fantastic resource for students looking to create strong portfolio, as well as more experienced artists interested in learning a traditional approach to drawing and painting. All skill levels welcome, as the lessons are tailored to each student's needs.

We will be working with oil paints as we cover the various elements that one needs to consider when making a classical still life painting. We will be discussing value and color studies, color mixing, pallet organization, composition, and much more over this 10-day workshop. This is a great workshop for both beginners and experienced painters.
