Message from Charles:
I feel it is such a privilege to be a teacher. It is said that, teachers are those who help find strengths, wipe away tears, overpower demons and conquer fears. When I am instructing an art workshop, I often find it an opportunity to touch the future by imparting knowledge I’ve accrued from the past. However, I feel, the most important ingredient to workshop instruction is having FUN!
This year has been a whirlwind! I have had the honor of instructing an extraordinary number of workshops. I feel so grateful to be an advocate and instructor of craft in this field. I really enjoy meeting artists in person from all over the world and have had some incredible experiences over the years. We’ve created memories and friendships for a life-time.
What lovely people we have in the representational arts community! Association with our fellow artists sharpens our skills and gives us another level of purpose to our art. Beyond the personal connections, the art itself is a language that we all share instantaneously!
I would like to let you know, if you are so inclined, that I am available to teach in your studio or school! Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you would like me to come for a visit! I’d be honored and happy to come share with you a workshop of your choosing. I’m now scheduling workshops for next year and beyond. You can drop me a line at [email protected] to set up dates that might work for you. I hope to see you down the road.
Let’s bring our dreams to life! – Charles

“Mr. Charles Miano’s teachings are beautifully balanced in every sense of the word. During his lessons East meets West, the intellectual counterparts the emotional, and the effort and hard work that he demands of his students is also presented with the need to let things develop naturally. It is a refreshing and daring methodology that challenges most, if not all, art schools’ curriculums by providing real, honest and unselfish instruction to students with serious intentions in art.”
Joe Oliva GanozaAlumni
