In 1972, Robert J. Seufert began teaching private drawing and oil painting classes in Morrisville, PA. As enrollment grew, the studio was moved to Langhorne, PA in 1979. In 1982, Alice, his future wife, joined him, teaching mainly children's classes. By 1993, Seufert Art Studio's enrollment was growing in number and was moved to it's present location in Fairless Hills, PA. In 2016, Patrick Seufert, also an accomplished artist, began teaching at the studio. All three Seufert's have received B.F.A.'s from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Philadelphia, PA.
The facility is nearly 500 square feet, with beautifully appointed lighting, conducive to a quality working artistic environment. There is an eleven car parking lot, fully lit, to accomodate students. Entrace to the Seufert Art Studio is also special needs accessible.
At the Seufert Art Studio, we strive to give the highest quality instruction in all avenues of art. Our classes are small, in order to give individual attention to each student. The atmosphere at our studio is very friendly and encouraging and our tuition is very reasonably priced. Because of all these positive factors, we have had and do, at present, have, very loyal students. Some who have remained and do remain with us, for many years.
Robert J. Seufert
Since graduating from Temple University's Tyler School of Art, Robert J. Seufert has won over 100 awards for his artwork, including many "Best of Show" and "First Prize". Over two thousand of his original oil paintings are represented in private and corporate collections, both nationally and internationally.
In spite of Mr. Seufert's employing the use of a painting knife, his oils are extremely realistic, when viewed from a distance, but when viewed up close are indeed impressionistic in technique.
In his 49 year career as a professional artist, Robert paintings have been displayed in many prestigious galleries across the U.S. He also has two of his paintings in the permanent collection at the Michener Museum in Doylestown, PA.
Mr. Seufert is currently represented by the Chapman Gallery in Doylestown, PA and Canal Fram Crafts Gallery in Washington Crossing, PA.
Alice Olson Seufert
Alice Olson Seufert received her B.F.A. from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, graduating Cum Laude. She also received her teacher certification from Tyler. Alice was fortunate to have been a student of the internationally recognized artist, Alan Magee, of Maine and also Chuck Schmidt, watercolorist and oil painter from PA. Both artists have greatly influenced her and her method of teaching.
While working professionally as an artist, she and her husband, Robert, share a studio in Bucks County, PA. Alice Olson Seufert teaches fine art drawing, water color, portfolio prep, cartooning classes and more, to both children and adults.
Alice Olson Seufert has gained a reputation as a specialty teacher in preparing high school juniors' and seniors' portfolios for college. In her 35 years as a teacher, she has helped hundreds of students get accepted and also receive scholarships to some of the top art schools and universities across the country.
Included in this list are: Tyler School of Art, University of the Arts, Moore College of Art of Philadelphia. Carnegie Mellon in Pittsburgh, PA. Pratt, Parsons, Fashion Institute of Technology of NYC, Cooper Union, N.Y., NYU, Rhode Island School of Design, Chicago Art Institute, just to name a few.
Alice paints her watercolors with tremendous attantion to detail. Working in a series of layers to build up value, color and texture, her watercolors are extremly realistic. She has also rendered a number of portrait commissions in both W/C and pastel. Juried shows include: Phillips Mill, in Solebury, PA, the Woodmere Art Museum, in Philadelphia, PA and the Doylestown Art League, Doylestown, PA.
Alice's work is exhibited at the Canal Fram Crafts Gallery in Washington Crossing, PA. She also exhibits her work at her shared studio in Buck County, PA.
After graduating from Tyler School of Art in 2009, Patrick focused on assembling a collection of paintings. Over the course of about 4 years he worked hard and painted harder. He entered a number of juried art shows and won several awards along the way, both locally and nationally. He had combined his love for oil painting and his fondness for illustration into a style all his own. With a little help from his camera he was on his way.
Patrick was somehow drawn to the city of Philadelphia. He had never lived in Philadelphia but had been there countless times, as it was only a short drive for him down I-95. Philadelphia is known a blue collar city and that aspect of it, is what he wanted to illustrate. While not all of his paintings depict the city, there is a constant theme of aged buildings and worn down streets that is almost always present. He does not wish to show the parts of the city that have been photographed or painted many times, he wants to show the common spaces that nobody would think to paint but where everyone has been at some point. Although the scenes he paints are mostly of Philly they could be mistaken for Chicago or New York.
Patrick has been extremely fortunate to have had the guidance of his parents through the years. They have helped him with the business aspect of art and the ups and downs that come with it. For the last 4 years Patrick has traveled as far south as Virginia and as far west as Pittsburgh to display his work. He has also been fortunate to be a part of the Rittenhouse Square Fine Art show in center city Philadelphia for the past 6 years. Currently Patrick is not represented by any gallery but he is open to the idea if it fits his needs. He hopes to continue to evolve as an artist while continuing to maintain quality and to produce work that he has put all of his thought and effort into.
