“I’ve only taken 3 drawing classes but I can say that Jean-Antoine is patient, fun, and creative. He’s a talented artist. He studied with the best. And your drawings will look the best.”

Alexandra Standish

“I've been taking art classes with Jean-Antoine for about 8 months and he is very didactic when teaching; he makes sure all areas are covered, such as techniques, vocabulary and individual creativity. In the last month I've been working on a landscape painting where all the knowledge gain is being applied to this project.”


“Jean Antoine is a thoughtful and inspiring art teacher. I am a beginner and I gained confidence to believe in myself. He brought his wealth of experience and creativity into his teaching while understanding his students’ varying artistic skill level and propelling them to find their voices for artistic expression. He is masterful in his technique in both his art and teaching. Thank you JA! “
