After School Art Studio

Accepting new students in 2022 and ends May 31, 2023

My name is Gabriel Coke and I am the instructor at Art Students' Atelier. I specialize in teaching talented children. I teach Drawing and Oil Painting with skills I practiced in my many years in Ateliers in Europe and The United States. Please feel welcome to contact me to discuss your child's needs, goals and abilities. Your child's success means a great deal to me. I offer year-round instruction, experience and letters of recommendation as your child approaches college admissions. 

After School Art Studio has run since 2012. Since its beginning this class has graduated new generations of young and skilled Art students who have gone on to study in several top Art schools and colleges in The United States and Europe. The success of these students comes from beginning as young as 12 years old and staying in the studio year-round until an extraordinary portfolio is built. These young students perform extremely well and approach college with experience and confidence.  

The studio is also fun, inspiring and supportive. The safe and functional atmosphere is nurturing and helps students concentrate for many hours at a time. All abilities are welcome and instruction is taught with heart warming commitment to everyone's well being. 

Parent Testimonials

My daughter has been coming to Gabriel’s studio since middle school, from 6th to 11th grade. She has learned so much technique and skills, from charcoal to oil painting. Gabriel is a very talented artist and a great teacher, very patient with students with positive and encouraging teaching skill. My daughter not only improved her art, but began to truly enjoy the art. She decided to pursue art as her career.  She has been accepted by Parson’s School of Design, major illustration for 2021 Fall term. We are greatly appreciated Gabriel’s teaching over the years.

Gabriel was my daughter’s art teacher for over six years. We discovered Gabriel when we met an artist painting at Hakone Gardens years ago. My daughter, who was 12 at the time and a budding artist, was in awe of the artist’s work. She spoke with us and told us that she had been a student of Gabriel’s and recommended him as an outstanding teacher. We signed my daughter up for lessons right away and she continued learning under Gabriel until she graduated from high school. Under Gabriel’s wing, she honed her drawing and painting skills. He helped her with her portfolio and she was accepted into many top art schools around the United States. Gabriel is a kind and patient teacher, and his approach to teaching generates a warm and welcoming environment. He works with each student, brings out their talents, and by example, instills in them the passion to be a lifelong learner. In addition to this, he gives his students opportunities to participate in art competitions, exhibits, and to work with professional artists from around the world. These additional opportunities show his commitment and dedication to his students and his studio. I continue to recommend Gabriel to anyone I know that is interested in art. Because of his professionalism, his passion, and his dedication to the arts, students and our art community will continue to thrive and be strong. Sincerely,
