Studio Incamminati exists to meet the express needs of students eager to learn the aesthetic and philosophical principles of humanist realism and the techniques espoused by Nelson Shanks.

Modeled on the traditional Italian accademia and French atelier, Studio Incamminati provides a dynamic teaching program to produce highly skilled artists who can call upon their abilities to create art with depth of purpose. We teach artists whose art and teaching will in turn inspire others.

As Studio Incamminati progresses, our students will master the practices needed to develop rewarding careers and lives in the arts. As the Incamminati movement advances, its influence will be recognized worldwide. Nelson, his wife Leona, and Marc Mostovoy (The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia) are the three co-founders of Studio Incamminati.
