Chelsea Classical Studio is a small studio that offers drawing and painting classes, with a focus on improving students' foundations by working on exercises and projects that aim to improve students' weaknesses. The classes are small, from 3-10 people, with individualized curriculums. Most students are looking to improve their skills in drawing or painting the figure and portrait.
Founded by Portrait Artist Brandon Soloff.
The enduring legacy of a fine arts education is not just an appreciation of great accomplishments and styles, but to create a structure to give visual form to what is seen, known and felt, and thus provide a basis from which to develop.
The Chelsea Classical Studio strongly believes that critical thinking and diverse points of view are very important factors in an artist’s education and development. Featuring experienced artists working alongside students and providing instruction, critiques, demonstrations and a constant exchange of ideas, it seeks to bring together visual artists of various mediums, skill levels, backgrounds and ages. Applicants will be carefully considered and chosen based on art experience, education, and a demonstrated passion and willingness to learn.
Expand the depth of artistic education. Artist should study their materials, practice basic skills, and develop personal methods which play into their natural tendencies.

Great class! Loved it.
Great instructor and environment!
I am a serious student of drawing and don't like unnecessary distraction - like music played at any sound level. I mentioned this when I entered the studio but the guy did not turn off his music. Teacher did not step in. The teacher was good - not intrusive - and a perfect number of students (3) and a perfect model. I would not return.
This is not a beginning class, by not saying this puts people in a awkward situation.
I learnt a lot from the instructors and got to dive straight into life drawing. However, I would say this is not a class for complete beginners, so the title is misleading and I’d love to see a real fundamentals class which is more guided and structured.
A great class, I’m a beginner and the instructor was able to help me tremendously!
Very good instruction, model and experience.
Yes I haven't drawn in a long time and felt a little insecure and the instructor was great. I saw improvement at the end of the class. It will be my regular class now! D
I loved this class. The instructor paid special attention to each student, tailoring his feedback and direction to their level of expertise. A really fun way to dip my toes back into drawing!
