Studio Incamminati Stats, Info and Facts

For more than a decade, Studio Incamminati has been in the forefront of the burgeoning contemporary realist art movement. Founded by Nelson and Leona Shanks, it is now recognized nationally and internationally for its rigorous curriculum, accomplished instructors and diverse outreach efforts.

The school, modeled on the traditional Italian academia and French atelier, is committed to the belief that mastery of technique is essential to creative expression. Its innovative curriculum fuses classical traditions of the Renaissance era masters, luminous color of the Impressionists and a fresh, contemporary sensibility. Its goal is to produce highly skilled artists who call upon their training and abilities to create art with depth of purpose. Its artists, faculty and alumni have been featured at numerous prominent venues including exhibitions at the National Arts Club, NYC; S.R. Brennen Galleries, Santa Fe, and Philadelphia's Comcast Center.

Even the school's name is filled with symbolism. In Italian, "Incamminati" means "moving forward" and invokes the spirit of its namesake studio founded by the Renaissance artist, Annibale Carracci. Studio Incamminati, one of the few schools of its type accredited by the National Associations of Schools of Art and Design, fulfills its vision in a number of ways. In addition to its core Advanced Fine Art Program, the school offers workshops open to the general public both in Philadelphia and with the In Your Town programs nationwide. Other programs serve school-age artists and art educators. The Integrated Art Studio major, offers the opportunity to earn a liberal-arts degree at Chestnut Hill College while taking studio classes at Studio Incamminati.

The Advanced Fine Art Program is based on teaching representational art--figurative, still life and portrait. It is designed for artists of all ages and levels of ability, from professionals seeking to expand their skills to high school graduates just embarking on their artistic journey. This program is designed for students who want to become a professional fine artist. The program requires approximately four years of study. Students receive a Diploma of Fine Art upon successful completing the program.
