Matthew teaches from his studio, "The Firthcliffe Atelier" located in the historic Firthcliffe Mill in Cornwall, New York.  The studio is run in a traditional manner with students drawing and painting from life and from the beautiful natural light of the studio’s large windows.


Students will learn about colour, form, line quality, composition and more. Matthew will work with each student’s individual needs to help them hone their skills.  Classes are small and intimate. All levels are welcome, whether its portrait, landscape, figure or any art form Matthew can help you in your development.

Matthew also offers portfolio prep for high school students, where they will work on strengthening drawing skills and be able to work alongside a practicing artist. Matthew also runs frequent workshops some of these through organizations in the Hudson Valley.  To be notified about workshops or inquire about tuition please send a message on the contact page.
