Sigmund Abeles, N.A.

a popular teacher, has taught at a number of New England Schools, including Wellesley College, Boston University, and the University of New Hampshire. He moved to New York City in 1004, where he is currently teaching at the Art Students' League. His works have been exhibited widely and collected by museums, colleges, and public institutions, including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Smithsonian Institution and the Library of Congress in Washington, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, among others.


Mr. Abeles teaches with a constant reference to past as well as current art and artists, as he believes hat art comes from observation, influences from others and one's unique temperament. He seeks to find and enhance each student's natural strength. There is emphasis on composition from the beginning, and the participant will become more aware of the psychological power of the human figure to convey their feelings via individual and idiosyncratic use of drawing, distortions, placement and inner attitudes.
