Kline Academy of Fine Art

Kline Academy is an atelier experience… when you walk through our doors you will see easels spattered in colorful bits of paint, works of art from classical master copies, fine French Academy style drawings to contemporary abstracts. Large plaster casts of Roman busts for drawing fill the back studio, sky lights stream light down on a model stand draped in colorful fabric and the sweet smell of oil paint is in the air. 

I started Kline Academy in 2007 to give anyone who seeks a better art education an opportunity to learn these historic painting techniques brush stroke by brush stroke, the way I learned to paint from the master artists I was fortunate to study under. I understand an artist's frustration at having a great idea but not being able to execute it with polish and panache. My motto is that "your frustration ends at our front door." Our students come from a diverse background of careers, all ages and all skill levels from absolute beginner to master artists. The only requirement we have is the desire and the passion to make art. And I ensure that all will learn and grow because the teachers on our staff are people who I myself would want to study with, exceptional artists who are skilled at teaching and nurturing their student's growth.

It is because of my vision to create a respectable art academy that is founded on classical foundations in art, lineage that have been passed down from master to student since the Renaissance, that we have thrived. We are a place where people of any age and background can learn fundamentals of art making from classical realism to contemporary painting.

I always say that there are a few things in life that you don’t want to look for the cheapest —- cosmetic surgery and art supplies are among them! When you hold a Rosemary brush, it is a tactile experience which already makes you feel like a professional. The glossy wood handle, gold embossed lettering, slick ferrule, the fine bristles complete the beauty of these hand made brushes. For our Classical brush set we prefer the short flat softer brushes. With the short flats (brights) you can achieve that chiseled edge necessary for seamless transitions and crisp collisions. Cheaper brushes fall apart sometimes after one use and cleaning. Rosemary brushes stand up to some of the abuse. But because the experience of using a finer made tool, students and artists tend to treat these beautiful brushes with more care. The “Ivory short flat and filberts” are like butter. Loaded with good quality paint, they glide onto any surface, delivering just the right effect. I don’t think it is fair to have students begin with inferior materials than I would use myself, so we are happy to recommend this set as a good beginning.
