Artist Empowerment
Art has the power to change lives and now, more than ever, artists have the tools to take charge of their careers. What does it mean to be an empowered artist? How do you take full ownership of your artistic voice; define the meaning of success to you; embrace the diverse aspects of your career, and act as your own catalyst for growth? We believe in the spirit of independence and self-determination and we’re here to support the artist at every stage of his/her career.

Our studio is a peaceful and sun-lit space on  Steinway St. between Broadway and 34th Ave. (closer to Broadway) in the heart of Astoria, Queens. 
We're just 3 stops from Manhattan and at the foot of the Steinway St. station on the R/M subway line.
Our neighbors include The Frank Sinatra High School of the Performing Arts, Queens Council on the Arts, Kaufman Astoria Studios and the Museum of the Moving Image as well as MOMA PS 1, one of the oldest and largest contemporary art institutions in the United States.
We are excited and proud to be part of the lively Astoria-L.I.C. arts scene!
Look for the big blue 'Ferrari Driving School' awning as we are in that building on the third floor. Please note there is no elevator. Your workout starts at the bottom of the stairs ;-)
We are happy to help bring up strollers etc. during our youth classes.
