The LEGACY ART STUDIO is a private institution dedicated to the study of drawing, painting and sculpture in the classical tradition without excluding the insight and advances of the modern art movement. It was created in 2004 to be strongly rooted in academic training while also encouraging artistic advancement through creative exploration.
Nilda Comas, the LEGACY ART STUDIO founder, expresses, "it is my conviction that as an artist one must have a thorough knowledge of the technical complexities of the craft. It is necessary to study the disciplines and technical skills that have been refined through the ages from the ancient Greeks, Renaissance, Baroque to the present. These established standards demand knowledge of composition, perspective, form, draftsmanship and anatomy. Artists that have an understanding of these processes possess greater creative flexibility. Generations of artists built upon the experiences of past masters in order to bring their visions to life. At the LEGACY ART STUDIO the goal is to provide developing artists the opportunity to be exposed to intellectual and technical skills that have been part of the traditional instructional art methods that have been passed on thru generations of artists."
THE LEGACY ART STUDIO is well equipped with easels, modeling stands, lights, kitchen, dining area, and comfortable spaces for sculpting, painting, and drawing. It boasts an extensive library of art books for reference materials, biographies of many artists, technical books of the trade and plenty of art materials for the students use while attending the many classes.
THE LEGACY ART STUDIO is located in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. It is situated 2 blocks from the Courthouse and 3 blocks from the Museum Of Art close to the famous Las Olas Blvd. Accommodations for the workshops are available in the vicinity, by walking distance and by trolley. The beautiful Ft. Lauderdale Beach is nearby with its many hotels and restaurants.
