Creating beautiful art for the tri-county area for over 45 years


    ABOUT Artist Peter Olsen has created amazing murals and paintings for homes, churches, offices, restaurants, and more throughout America.  Plus, his private collections and award-winning paintings have been seen around the world via exhibits, television, and satellite programming for remote areas.  When he moved to South Florida from his native New York City, he established his private art studio in Oakland Park and has been part of that community for over 40 years.   He is also a gifted teacher and has initiated fine art curriculums for private/parochial schools.  He taught at Saint Anthony Parish School and Bethany Christian school for 20 years, taught at Peace Lutheran School, has been at Gateway Academy Christian School for over 20 years, and has weekly classes at his studio for talented children, teens, and adults at all levels --  beginner, intermediate, advanced, and professional.



















    CLASSES FOR KIDS - During the school year, classes for school-aged children are on Tuesday and Thursday of each week. Our students include homeschoolers, private and public schoolers.  Students come after school for a minimum of two hours any time between 1:30 and 6 p.m.    We provide snacks and juices for them along with supplies they use for their project.  The only thing you need to purchase in advance is a sketch pad (also called drawing pad) that is at least 11" x 14" with 50 pages.  Art stores like Jerry's ArtARama (Deerfield Beach but also online), Dick Blick (new Fort Lauderdale store plus online, and Michaels carry them. 


They begin their class with a drawing exercise and then work on their chosen individual projects/themes whether it's sketching, cartooning/animation, painting, working with wood, working with clay, etc.  They also learn about the master artists, their lives and art styles.  The monthly class fee is paid in advance before the 1st of each month - the fee is based on an hourly rate of $15.


Art education for children has been proven  to have great benefits for their academic learning.

If you would like your child to attend, just call the studio 954-565-0054 to set up a time to meet you and your child or children.  Bring in some of their drawings or paintings, even doodling!, too for Mr. Olsen to see!  



    CLASSES FOR ADULTS - What a great group we have every Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. !  Beginners advance faster than they ever thought possible and surprise their families with beautiful paintings.  Intermediate become advanced amazingly fast working on pieces they never thought possible.  Advanced learn new techniques and 'tricks' and network together to exhibit in professional settings.  The news that our artists are exhibiting in juried shows, has won a ribbon, a prize, sold a painting, received a commission is the norm.  



If you would like to join us for a Saturday adult class anytime between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. to create amazing art in a relaxed fun atmosphere, then just call the studio 954-565-0054 and say when you're coming.  As with any of our classes, there is no registration fee, no contract, no required attendance.  Many of our students are professionals with busy schedules, so a flexible schedule is most important.  The fee is $15 per hour - come create for at least two hours -- you'll love it!  Are you a snowbird?  Then this is definitely the place to be!



    PRIVATE TUTORING - Sometimes a group format just isn't feasible because of time schedules, family needs, or just personal preferences.  If a private art class would suit you better, we will work out a time that has your needs at the forefront.  Just call the studio 954-565-0054.   The private classes are for all ages.
