I'm pleased to announce the opening of Cambridge Street Studios
, Angela Cunningham, Instructor - specializing in classical painting, drawing and sculpture, located in the heart of Philadelphia. Classes begin September 1st.
It is world-class instruction; anyone is welcome, from absolute beginners trying to learn a new skill, to professional artists trying to reach a new level.
'Sky' - Angela Cunningham. Oil on Canvas.
Under Angela Cunningham, award winning graduate and instructor at the Grand Central Academy of Art in New York, and student of Jacob Collins, students will vastly improve their powers of observation and sense of form. Students will create fully-realized graphite drawings of classical sculpture on their way to rendering the human figure, with unsurpassed subtlety and truth, in both graphite and oil paint. Students will also sculpt from the classics and from life, further cultivating an ability to sense their subjects in three-dimensions.
