The Future Artist Award recipients attended a live drawing workshop by Robert Liberace, a contemporary classicist equally accomplished in drawing, painting, and sculpture. They ate lunch with the artist and received feedback on their artwork.


Ramapo High School student Tiffany Freeman said, "I had the honor of watching a great artist at work and to ask him questions afterwards. I was actually sketching the same man he was painting and had the opportunity to show my drawing to Mr. Liberace. He gave me an extremely helpful mini-lesson on drawing."


The Artist's Magazine selected Liberace as one of the top 20 realist artists under the age of 40. He was recently commissioned to sculpt a life-sized statue of Mother Teresa for the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C. View Liberace's work:
