Art Classes: Learn How to Draw and How to Paint All Ages, All Abilities.
Welcome to the Greg Storer Art Classes, Cincinnati, Ohio. We provide art classes for students age 6 and up. All skill levels and all abilities are welcome at my Art Studio in Mason north of Cincinnati. Our spacious 3400 sq. ft. space features vaulted ceilings and natural light.
If you think you can draw or paint... you probably can! We can help you develop the skills. I've been teaching for over 20 years. So many people have natural talent, but they are missing skills. Skills are specific tools, techniques, theories and facts. Did you know the human eye has approximately 6 million sensors for color called cones, but 100 million sensors for light and dark, called rods. Humans are VERY sensitive to value (light and dark). Even the best athletes must learn specific skills to play spots like tennis, golf, or basketball. We teach specific skill sets, which will allow you to share your talent.
My Goal & Approach - Teaching Art Classes - To help you realize your creative ideas and projects by introducing you to the tools, techniques, theories, principles and facts. I also offer constructive critique with suggestions.
Learn to Draw! Learn to Paint! - Pencil and Charcoal, Oil Paint, Oil Pastel, Pastel, Water Color and Acrylic painting. Research images and experiment with digital art on one of our iPads! Experiment with drawing on one of our three different versions of the camera lucida. Make your art in a relaxed, friendly, creative environment, at my studio, in Mason, Cincinnati.
High School and Home School Students... We are authorized by the College Board to teach AP 2-D Art and Design and Drawing Portfolio. Click here to view/download our credentials.

In 2006 a high school English teacher asked students to write a famous author and ask for advice. Kurt Vonnegut was the only one to respond - and his response is magnificent:
“Dear Xavier High School, and Ms. Lockwood, and Messrs Perin, McFeely, Batten, Maurer and Congiusta: I thank you for your friendly letters. You sure know how to cheer up a really old geezer (84) in his sunset years. I don’t make public appearances any more because I now resemble nothing so much as an iguana.
What I had to say to you, moreover, would not take long, to wit: Practice any art, music, singing, dancing, acting, drawing, painting, sculpting, poetry, fiction, essays, reportage, no matter how well or badly, not to get money and fame, but to experience becoming, to find out what’s inside you, to make your soul grow.
Seriously! I mean starting right now, do art and do it for the rest of your lives. Draw a funny or nice picture of Ms. Lockwood, and give it to her. Dance home after school, and sing in the shower and on and on. Make a face in your mashed potatoes. Pretend you’re Count Dracula.
Here’s an assignment for tonight, and I hope Ms. Lockwood will flunk you if you don’t do it: Write a six line poem, about anything, but rhymed. No fair tennis without a net. Make it as good as you possibly can. But don’t tell anybody what you’re doing. Don’t show it or recite it to anybody, not even your girlfriend or parents or whatever, or Ms. Lockwood. OK?
Tear it up into teeny-weeny pieces, and discard them into widely separated trash receptacles. You will find that you have already been gloriously rewarded for your poem. You have experienced becoming, learned a lot more about what’s inside you, and you have made your soul grow.
God bless you all!" Kurt Vonnegut
