Clayton is an absolute delight. With his keen eye and strong artistic skill, Clayton provides insightful feedback and possible improvements on your work. With his incredible wit, he maintains an air of approachability.The studio itself is incredibly atmospheric. With warm lighting, the subtle scent of art supplies and the quiet shuffle of fellow artists, just entering the studio gets you ready to paint.This is the perfect studio to turn to if you'd like to hone your artsy skills in a comfortable space!

I signed up for the 11 lessons package after attending the trial class because I really liked that Clayton went through the basics step-by-step and then gave me time and space to try out the techniques on my own. He’s a really patient teacher and you can tell he knows what he’s doing. Some people can do art but can’t teach well but he’s great at both!Clayton is also really encouraging and is always happy to provide feedback. He does that without making you feel uncomfortable and his personality and humor always helps to lighten the mood too 🙂 As a complete beginner, I felt really reassured and comfortable in his classes.The classes are flexible and you can let him know what you want to learn and he’ll teach you! I wanted to study architecture so he taught be perspective drawing and explained the techniques really well. Each lesson, he would go through the techniques with me and show me a rough example before letting me try it out on my own.If you’re a beginner or you’re learning a new skill, he makes sure that everyone else is settled and has something to do before sitting down with you to teach you.I learnt a lot about perspective drawing and gained confidence in my art skills thanks to him! 🙂 I’d definitely recommend his classes to anyone who wants to learn art or get better at it.

This is the real deal - for both complete beginners and those more experienced / competent. A wonderful arty, calm, relaxed environment and supportive, technical advice, insight and encouragement by Clayton. Nothing else on offer in Singapore I've experienced comes close. Recommended.

Stumbled upon this site when I was looking for a creative outlet and to give some structure to my random ‘artistic creations’. :-). Clayton turned out to be an outstanding teacher. Agreed to teach me from the basics and gave the confidence to continue.He doesn’t push too hard and allowed me to follow my pace and style.. he advices where necessary, instead of being too prescriptive. His knowledge is outstanding and while my interest in hobbies varies from time to time, and I tend to be irregular, he is the person I would go to, to continue my journey with paints and brushes.

I signed up to learn from Clayton because I love this style of learning where I progress at my own pace with no pressure. Clayton explains concepts and techniques that's easy to grasp; letting you tackle it on your ownand coming back to check, correct and advise if you are stuck or need help.The atelier is also possibly my happy place; brightly lit, surrounded by other students quitely working on their art with music playing softly in the background.

The Method

CRSG's method has helped many students in Singapore gain admission to top art schools around the world.

The teaching at the studio is based on the “atelier” method of art education – a centralized curriculum that each student goes through at their own pace. We give you in-depth instruction to help you improve your skills and your ability to achieve your expressive vision.

The Artist

Clayton Hudnall is an American painter and commissioned artist who has lived and worked in Singapore for the past eight years.

He earned his Master’s degree in painting from the New York Academy of Art in New York City and his work is currently represented in private collections in the United States, South America and Europe.
