• Safety Protocol & Guidelines

    With the present situation, we request registration online. We are allowing10 students per class, so seating availability will be on a first come, first serve basis.

    In accordance with the NJ guidelines we will meet the cleaning & sanitation procedures for the utmost safety of our students, as followed;

    - Our classroom is configured so students will meet the 6 foot distancing requirements. Students will be required to remain in their seats during the duration of class except for using the restroom.
    - Only students will be permitted in the school. We've always enjoyed meeting parents and siblings but for the time being, we ask you to wait outside. My assistant and I are happy to escort your child from and to the car.
    - Students will have their temperature taken before starting classes
    - Students will be required to wash hands before and after class once they enter our school.
    - Students are required to provide their own mask
    - Myself and my assistant instructor will maintain the utmost sanitary measures, wearing masks, washing hands frequently.
    - Prior and after each class we will sanitize the handles, tables, bathroom, etc.

     

    We hope we've covered all the bases to make our school a safe environment so our students can enjoy learning art with us. If you have something to share and improve our guidelines, I'd love to hear from you.

     

    Sincerely,
    Michael Malzone

  • The Virtual Art Experience

    Creators Workshop has been providing a fine art experience to children and adults for almost 20 years. Although we enjoy teaching live in the studio, we're excited to bringing our passion for art online as well.
    Creators Workshop is proud to provide virtual classes, taught directly by Mike streamed in real time. Students can socialize our live stram setting while receiving personal and custom art instruction along the way.

     

    Getting Started...
    We are pleased to offer classes for all ages. By providing virtual classes, each student will receive individual attention and instruction. Our virtual classes are limited to 10 students so we can provide our students with the same attention we offer our in-studio classes
    Upon registration and payment we'll send you a materials list that is available at local craft stores, art supply stores, and online art suppliers. You'll also receive instruction and tips to make your child's art experience the best it can be.
    As students complete their masterpieces, each painting and drawing will be in our students virtual art gallery

     

    REGISTRATION FOR ONLINE CLASSES
    The Creators Workshop uses the popular video streaming platform Streamyard for our online classes. Streamyard allows students and instructors to see each other face-to-face using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile device.

    The follow steps will help you get registered and get started taking online art classes with Streamyard and the Creators Workshop.

    Step 1: Register for Online Classes
    Registration for online classes is similar to registration for in-person classes. After clicking on the registration button under the online class description, you are taken to the Creators Workshop page at Wufoo.com. From here you select the class desired, enter your name, age, e-mail, and phone. Once you are registered you will receive a confirmation email of your online registration. You can return to the Creators Website and go to the Paypal payment page

    Prior to the start of your class, I will also send you an email inviting you to the CW online class. No meeting ID's or logins, just click the link in your e-mail and you're ready to go

     

    Step 2: Streamyard is the easiest Streaming service around
    No passwords, logins or ID's to download! A few minutes before out class I'll e-mail you a link to our broadcast studio and once you click the link, I should see the student in our visitors studio, we're ready to go.

    Note: Streamyard works best on a computer with the Google Chrome Internet browser

     

    Step 3: Join a Meeting
    A few minutes before the scheduled time of your class, you'll receive an e-mail with a link to our live broadcast studio.

    A great feature of Streamyard is our classes are recorded so the student can review the class at their convenience . I'll send you an e-mail where you can find the link to the class.

    Please be patient as the class continues to load and your instructor admits you in. Congratulations! You're now “live” with your instructor and other students in the class.

    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.

  • CURRICULUM

    What you'll learn at the Creators Workshop

    Fine Art Instruction.... 

    The Creators Workshop Way!

    DRAWING, PAINTING

     

    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!
