Quick History: this art studio was started in 1989 by the first owner, Kris Sosa, then called Antelope Valley School of Fine Art. In 1994 Antoinette was hired by Mrs. Sosa as an assistant. During 2006, Kris retired, and Antoinette became the second owner, renaming it in 2016. They are still friends today.
This is a small, local, privately owned and operated business.
We have even been blessed by generational students !
Beginning to advanced, traditional subjects: watercolors, acrylic, oil painting, soft pastel, colored pencils and drawing.
Acrylics are new to the program, still working out a long-term system for them.
Note to parents: the entire curriculum is currently being redesigned to launch in August 2023, along with a new and different schedule TBA asap.
There are no long term contracts, start anytime, stop anytime and long breaks are OK.
Antoinette's classes, what to expect:
Working both from reference and imagination. Building skills to draw and paint in three dimensions. Traditional subjects and themes, no cartoon characters.
Reference is available from our large photo cache, step by step lessons, or can be brought in from home. Please no devices.
Abstraction where preferred.
A fun and open, gentle atmosphere for children and adults.
Our many years of experience helping others to learn and show successfully.
Note: A pair of Standard Poodles may be present.
Please do not expect any instruction referring to
or leaning on TikTok or YouTube art tutorials.
Badge-earning workshops, commissions, pet portraits, murals (by extension) and restoration/touch-up.
Restoration is case by case and usually at very reasonable cost.
Always happy to take a look free of charge.
