Art Studio Practice for Adults

in the live studio

Welcome to Studio Year 2023-2024

We don’t teach art. No one can. But no one can aspire to creative, artistic practice without acquiring the craft of the artist as one’s own.

And the artist’s craft can only be learned through actual practice.
That’s what we teach, and teach very, very well.

We are here to welcome you into deep, strong, old-school practice.
That practice is always about the new and transformative things
that you’ll experience and create!

Health & Wellness Policy


  1. The AAHP’s Director/Chief Instructor is a chronic asthmatic.  Please protect her and others in the room from respiratory illness, and from allergens such as pet hair on clothes, hair, gear, etc. 


  1. If feeling under the weather, please go to the attendance portal to postpone your class or schedule a make-up. It’s easy!

  1. There is no cross-ventilation in the studio; the room layout demands that we operate behind closed doors and windows, under fan, air-conditioning and/or central heating.
