Kenneth Schweiger, Full-Time Program Instructor at The Atelier Studio Program of Fine Arts, was born in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and graduated from DePaul University in Chicago, Illinois. After traveling to Japan and studying classical and contemporary works of art in Tokyo, Kenneth returned to Minneapolis where he completed five years of intensive drawing and painting at The Atelier and then continued his studies in New York. With patience and enthusiasm, Kenneth's experience is an asset for student painters.

My goal in teaching the basic drawing class is to logically analyze the visual world and break it down into shapes, values, and edges.
