Level: some drawing skills and commitment

Tenaya received a B.F.A in painting and drawing at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. After working several years as a graphic designer, he began his classical studies at the Jeff Watts Atelier in Encinitas, CA. He then moved to Seattle where he completed four years of full time study at the Juliette Aristides Classical Atelier at the Gage Academy in Seattle. He is the recipient of the Stanley R. Wright Foundation award (2004) and the Robert DeZordo Estate award (2005). Tenaya has taught classes at Gage Academy of Art and Pratt Fine arts Center, and is currently represented by Elka Rouskov Gallery in Kirkland, Wa. Tenaya was recently featured in Southwest Art's 21 under 31 painters with a bright future! (pg 136).

This program teaches drawing and painting in the classical tradition. The curriculum and the teaching techniques are modeled on those of the Atelier programs. This successful method teaches students to thoroughly understand, develop, and implement the skills needed for representational drawing and painting.
Each student is guided through each assignment and the teaching environment is supportive and respectful, by both instructors and peers.
