To see is the student's first and last concern. Without a well-trained eye a student can never rise above mediocritiy. If there ever was a secret of the old masters, it surely was their extraordinary ability to see. 
                                       - Richard F. Lack

The Academy embraces several art disciplines where students, working directly with professional artists, are guided and encouraged to develop their unique gifts and talents. We provide opportunities in art classes, workshops, and art lectures for the novice through the professional to benefit from study, apprenticeship, exhibition and performance, and to promote the arts in the best classical tradition for enjoyment and inspiration.

Steven Law
Decouvert Fine Art
On Collecting Drawings

Steven Law and Donald Stroud have collected drawings for over forty years.  They opened Decouvert Fine Art, a gallery specializing in drawings, five years ago.  Last year they were vetted by organizers in London to participate in Old Master Drawings NY 2016.  Subsequently, they exhibited in Paris during the time of the Salon du Dessin.  During their Introduction to Collecting Drawings, they hope to convey their passion for drawings and their disciplined approach to buying and selling them -- training the eye, understanding materials and condition, initiating research related to subject and authorship, and the difficult challenge of assessing value
