About Classes at H&R Studio

Annual Calendar

Our calendar year is split into three 7-week sessions during which classes occur, scheduled during Naples’ peak late autumn-spring season. 

  • Please note that, during the summer off-season, H&R Studio is only open for Private Lessons, Mentorship, and Open Life Drawing.

  • Fall 2019/Session 1 (with extra week added for Thanksgiving): October 22nd—December 12th, 2019

  • Winter 2020/Session 2: January 7th—February 20th, 2020

  • Spring 2020/Session 3: March 3rd—April 16th, 2020


  • Class prices range from $500.00 to $650.00 depending on type.

  • Some classes include model fees for an additional $75.00.

  • Students are responsible for purchasing their own materials.

  • However, sculpture classes will include materials fees for an additional $95.00, as well as any applicable $75.00 model fee. This simplifies logistics for students, allowing H&R Studio to manage the ordering and shipping of heavy or highly specific materials directly to the studio.

Frequency & Duration

A class' individual meetings occur once a week for a three-hour session, either from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM (Morning), 1:00-4:00 PM or 2:00-5:00 PM (Afternoon), or 6:00-9:00 PM (Evening).


Most classes take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and/or Thursdays, except for Workshops and week-long classes. 

Class Size

  • Non-sculpture (two-dimensional, or drawing and/or painting) classes accommodate up to 8 students.

  • Sculpture classes (three-dimensional) accommodate up to 4 students.

  • A mixture of sculpture and non-sculpture students accommodates up to 6 students. 


Co-founders Brett F. Harvey or Lauren Amalia Redding, though they may occasionally substitute for the other if needed. 

Eligible Students 

Anyone over 16 years old (demonstrating maturity) is welcome! All experience levels are welcome, as well. While our classes are ideal for anyone who wishes to learn how to create serious artwork in an informal setting, our classes are particularly well-suited for:

  • Seasonal Neopolitans who enjoy the beach, but would also appreciate an educational and creative experience during their stay;

  • Permanent residents who crave a stimulating cultural break from their routine without trekking to Miami;

  • High school juniors and seniors who have outgrown their current art classes or would like to take one at H&R Studio to gauge which type of collegiate art program is best for them;

  • College students who would like to take a skill-based, representational art class without taking out student loans.
