The studio school, founded in 2012, is a small art school dedicated to the idea that to learn to draw (and paint) is to learn to see. It is a place for students to reach their full potential under the mentorship of our gifted instructors, each a working artist. All levels of student are welcome, and a passion for creation and growth is nurtured and fed. Art class sizes are small enough to allow for maximum student-instructor interaction, giving students the opportunity to really grasp the skills and tools that are offered.
artist instructor Lind Hollingsworth is a painter who works in mixed media. She currently creates “relief paintings”. Using paper, mat board and spackling, she builds a scene in relief to which she adds paint, maps, photo transfers and found objects. She captures the character of the southeast through focusing on the juxtaposition of the fortitude of nature and human consumption. She works to convey the essence of a place through depicting man-made structures, flora and fauna, and memories that inhabit it. Lind currently works as an adjunct instructor at Columbia College, teaching Art Appreciation and Art History at Hunter AAF and Fort Stewart. She founded the The Art School in Savannah where she taught art classes to age 6 through adult from 2000 – 2007. She has also taught public school art and worked as an architectural interior designer. http://lindhollingsworth.com/ Lind@thestudioschoolsavannah.com
Tatiana von Tauber has owned The Studio School since 2015 after a sudden change of life purchase from its founder, Melinda Borysevicz. Tatiana maintained the "atelier" factor at the downtown art studio in Savannah for five years, providing life drawing and art workshops to a local community of artists. Due to Covid-19, the brick and mortar studio has closed and until further notice, Tatiana teaches online art to beginner and intermediate level students so they can become confident artists no matter what age or skill they are at.
Some of our amazing past instructors have included Michael Reibel, Karen Bradley, Angela Cunningham, Jeff Hein, Thomas Mitz and many more local artists from the Savannah region. We thank them all for their art classes and workshops at The Studio School. Until further notice, we will only be working with instructors interested in an online audience.
