Kevin McEvoy

Having studied at the oldest active atelier in Europe for several years, and as the founder and director of a large atelier in New York, I have taught the classical atelier methods of drawing and painting for the past 12 years to students of all ages and abilities. I have learned to meet each student where they are, from absolute beginners to established professionals. I am very pleased to now offer online the full spectrum of what I myself have learned, as a professional artist. Passionate about drawing and painting, as a boy I sketched in the gentle rolling hills of Ireland, and as a teenager I studied Greek statuary at the Metropolitan Museum in New York. As a young man, I studied classical drawing and painting for several years in both South America, and in the oldest active atelier in Europe, the Charles Cecil Studios in Florence, Italy. I am now a professional artist painting and teaching in New York, and traveling internationally for my career. I enjoy painting people, still life subjects, landscapes, and interiors.

What our learners say about us

I love how Kevin teaches! When I started, I loved to draw, but didn't know how to draw what I saw... and now I am painting portraits. 
Melanie Howe, New York
When someone finds your soul and gives you the tools to explore it, you have found the ultimate teacher, philosopher and artist. Kevin is such a man. His approach to art is all encompassing: reaching into music, all periods of art, color, value... Then he proceeds to quietly give you all the necessary tools to allow you to change the blank slate of paper, that canvas and your mind into something rare and evolving.

Frequently asked questions

Why Classical Art?

The Classical Art Method of drawing and painting is based on master artists with proven methods of replicating exactly what you see using the foundational building blocks that DiVinci and Michelangelo used.

Why McEvoy Atelier?

Kevin McEvoy is a Classical trained Instructor of over 15 years with thousands of students. Kevin took the unique methodology and teaching techniques of Europe, and incorporated them into his own teaching practices. Every lesson is suffused with not just technical ideas, but with art history. Students did remarkably well in this art lesson/art history environment, and his body of students thrived. An admirer of the polymaths of the Renaissance, Kevin is a firm believer of the interconnectedness of all disciplines- his teaching always points students towards seeing the connection between art, science, literature, music, and geometry. “The greatest joy I have is to see the light come on in a student’s eyes… when they finally understand that the light hitting the side of a child’s face is the same as water rushing against the side of a rock in a stream. With understanding, students come to connect the dots in the created world around them… they ignite their capacity for delight, embarking on a lifelong journey of curiosity.”

More FAQs:

 I’m homeschooling overseas and my child is in 9th grade and pretty good at drawing but never had a formal art class. That's fine that they haven't had a formal art class, our courses start at the foundation level for all of our students regardless of previous experience or not.
I’m wondering how your homeschool art works? Our courses are asynchronous, which means students move at their own pace through the content.  Basically they set up a spot in their house with their sketchbook and pencils, watch the lesson and then continue drawing for an additional 20-30 min after the lesson ends. They can also participate in live zoom classes at 2:30 Eastern and upload artwork for review.
I see that there is about a 30 min video and then the students takes the rest of the week to work in the project. Typically lessons are 15-20 min long, and then the student continues drawing for an additional 20-30 min after the video is completed.  For a total lesson time of roughly 40 min.  We recommend completing two lessons a week.  Though we have had students go through them faster.
How many lessons are there? The amount of lessons per course varies.  As courses get more complex, students spend more independent time drawing so it really depends how much time the learners choose to spend on each lesson/project. If you complete two lessons a week, each course should last half a year, or one semester.  The Foundations course is about 25 lessons.
Should a basic art class be taken first then go on to more complex classes? It is necessary to start with the Foundations of Drawing course, because it ties into everything else.  Each course has a Roman Numeral to point out a suggested sequence. The first year is typically Foundations of Drawing and Drawing from the Imagination.
How much are they? $14.99/month.  The Atelier Membership costs $14.99/month and includes all the course offerings. 
I see that students can ask questions on a Facebook page. Is there any other interaction like grading or turning in finished projects? Our new site has a community page built into where students can post artwork, questions and also comment on eachothers work.  Students can also tune in for the live zoom classes on Tuesdays 2:30 Eastern.
Is there a time limit for finishing work or is a lot of it up to the parent? There is a suggested time frame of 30-50min per lesson.  Basically, if a student finishes very quickly, then they may need more time to render the image furthure and put in more detail.  But, yes, it is largely up to the parent.
Is there any tests? We have a couple of assessments, the most common is uploading the artwork for feedback.
What is the pricing for a half of year class? It's a membership model of $14.99/month for as long as you want to use it.
