Palette Art Studio was founded in Cheshire, Connecticut in 1997, by artist and teacher Natasha Piskunova, who was trained in classical and contemporary Russian schools of painting and drawing. The unique Palette Art Studio program is grounded in a traditional European art education model, with a contemporary update that fits the 21st Century.
Palette Art Studio is first and foremost committed to the development of student's visual perception and creativity. Students are systematically introduced to the fundamental concepts and skills of painting and drawing. They learn to understand and manipulate structure, form, and color within a broad range of mediums and techniques.
While learning these foundational skills, students are also encouraged to develop their own artistic style. Our small classes are designed to allow each student individualized attention and to provide students with specific assignments that match their age and experience.
The studio’s goal is to give students a strong foundation of artistic knowledge and the tools to explore more advanced concepts.
