Dalvero – Dal vero – From the Italian, meaning “from the truth”, or direct observation. Drawing from the truth – literally and figuratively.
Academy – an institution of higher learning, research, or honorary membership. Our academy is based on those principles, extended through drawing, painting, video and digital photography, with a basis in reportage.
Dalvero Academy is a private school of drawing, illustration, design and photography based in Brooklyn, NY. We train students to become graphic communicators through all mediums – in short, we train artists who choose to illustrate and communicate with their art.
All students are trained in intensive drawing, both from the model and on locations such as New York, Paris, and Disneyworld, Florida. This individualized training enhances the development of their own sense of design and proportion. We do not believe in cookie-cutter art, we believe in the importance of individual vision!
Dalvero Academy is the creation of illustrator/educators Veronica Lawlor and Margaret Hurst, who also teach illustration at Pratt Institute and Parsons the New School for Design. They are award-winning illustrators who are part of Studio 1482, an illustration collective located in New York City.
