Gemma Art Foundation 2nd Annual Art Symposium

Influence of the Italian Renaissance on Contemporary Western Culture 

This year Artist and Director Anna Neis personally selected three students from various schools in New Jersey – Kelly Jiang, 14, Taisia Ivanova, 19, and Caitlin Petty, 20 – who showed both artistic ability and a desire to increase their knowledge of art history. The central theme of the symposium focuses on how the Italian Renaissance has influenced the contemporary culture of the Western world, and through both sketching and journaling the students will be analyzing this topic in individual ways.

Gemma Art Foundation & Educational Center

Gemma Art Foundation program provides a learning environment for the student who is making a choice to major in the field of visual or graphic arts and is interested in receiving the finest training in learning the fundamentals of drawing, design, and composition


Building a strong portfolio in a crucial step in the art college application process and for many may become a serious obstacle on the way of their goal. Our college preperation program offers workshops through out the year where students are encouraged to attempt open-ended and ambitious approaches to different mediums, receive detailed instructions to painting and drawing of figure, still-life, portrait, landscape and creating compositions from models or memory. Our classes are taught by professional practicing artists and offer beginning and advanced students an opportunity to expand their art training and leave with an exceptional portfolio of creative work.


Gemma’s goal is to instill self-confidence in each student and help them overcome the difficulties that cause so many to give up along the way.
