  • ABOUT US

    When the artist is alive in any person ... he becomes an inventive, searching, daring, self-expressing creature. He becomes interesting to other people. He disturbs, upsets, enlightens, and he opens ways for better understanding.

    -Robert Henri

    Welcome to the Creators Workshop Art School and Studio website. Now in our 15th year, the Creators Workshop offers fine art classes in Drawing, Painting, and Cartooning for children and adults. Our school is founded on the principle of offering students a fine art education in a professional, working studio environment. Under the tutelage of owner/instructor Michael Malzone, students are taught classic traditional techniques in drawing, painting, and cartooning in which they can learn, practice and develop their skills. Whether the student aspires to a career in art or just for enjoyment, our goal is to make the art of art instruction a fun and enriching experience.

    About the

    Creators Workshop

    Art Instruction Year round....

    We're serious about what we do. Creators is not a once-in-a-while art program, we're a full time school and studio offering classes five days a week. As the owner and instructor I take pride in our approach to instruction and the work our students produce....and equally important, we like to share our love of art with hands on instruction, history with powerpoint presentations, discussions about great artists and much more!

  • WHO'S TALKING

    Fostering your childs' imagination and creativity is not a luxury, it's the most important tools they bring to their future......

    Here's what people are saying about us......

    My daughter has been taking painting for over a year and absolutely loves it. I am excited because there is the right balance of learning and exploring. She also attended the summer art camp which was fantastic; drawing, painting, photography, clay etc...The Director is so great with children of all ages. My mother ran an art school for over 10 years and I have some great experience being around both the good and bad art education environments. Creators Workshop is both a great environment and more importantly my daughter is having fun.
    -Susan F.

  • CURRICULUM

    What you'll learn at the Creators Workshop

    Fine Art Instruction.... 

    The Creators Workshop Way!

    DRAWING, PAINTING, & CARTOONING

     

    Drawing
    We are enhancing are drawing and painting classes with more serious methods of studies.
    Our drawing classes incorporate a modified version of the classical drawing course formulated by Jean-Léon Gérôme and Charles Bargue in the late 1800's, one of the most influential art-education programs in the world. From Paris to London to New York, major museums and art schools used the course. Students from Diego Rivera, Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh and hundreds of other art students spent weeks and months making exact copies of the lithographs of plaster casts, great master drawings, and life drawings.
    Many great art schools and ateliers around the US today still utilize the Bargue method and are rediscovering its value to the aspiring artist.
    I have come to the opinion as a private art instructor that despite the innovation in graphics and photography due to technology and computers, artists still need to draw! That's our job, to provide our students with great classical, traditional drawing skills, and enjoying the process.

    Traditional representational painting in Acrylics, Oils, & Watercolors
    The title sounds stuffy, but that's what we've been successfully teaching our students the past fifteen years. A very sound method and approach to painting, based on the nineteenth-century ateliers and studios. Our goal is to impart a deep understanding of the guiding principles of painting, understanding of tonal values and the nature of light and how we perceive it. Through the study of landscape, seascape, still life, and portraits, the art student explores the skills of composition, an understanding of color, the prismatic palette, and methods and materials of executing a successful painting. Our approach to color and our palette is based on the Munsell color system combined with the prismatic palette passed down from Frank Vincent Dumond, which was taught at the Art Students League. Using the Munsell system puts our students light years ahead of other art school methods and through practice, any artist can attain any color in color space using this method. Dumond's palette breaks down the Munsell system making it applicable to painting any subject matter. Pretty exciting stuff!

    Cartooning
    Our cartooning class has been the mainstay at the Creators Workshop since we started, and each year we find new ways of teaching old tried and true methods. Although we're certainly aware of the inroads computers have made in the animation industry, we feel strongly that the skills, techniques, and methods passed down by master comic strip artists, animators and illustrators are the best foundation for the aspiring cartoonist. Students learn basic drawing and cartooning skills, character design, model sheets, storyboards, creating a cartoon strip, and the basics of drawing comic books.
