At Manchester Studios RVA, we bring master artist/instructors in Classical Realism from around the world to teach workshops in sculpting, painting, drawing, and anatomy. The methods of visual measuring used by the Old Masters to acheive accuracy are taught in a step by step fashion.  By keeping workshops small, students of all levels, from beginner to advanced, can expand their skills and knowledge.

Located in the heart of Richmond, Virgina's Manchester Arts Community, our 2000 square foot studio has 16 foot ceilings, massive wooden beams, and banks of windows that stretch to the ceiling, flooding the space with natural light all day long.

Founder Constance Bowden studied figurative sculpture at the Florence Academy of Art under director Robert Bodem, Mitch Shea, Eudald de Juana Gorriz, Eran Webber, Charlier Mostow and Stephen Perkins.  She began her studies there in 2015, following 25 years as a portrait painter and bronze figurative sculptor.  In addition to her training at the Florence Acadmey of Art, Mrs. Bowden graduated from the College of William and Mary with the Highest Honors in Sculpture.  She advanced her skills through a three-year apprencticeship in violin making with the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, followed by five years studying bronze casting at the Johnson Atelier Institute of Sculpture Technology. She has studied painting with Cedric and Joanette Egeli, Dawn Whitelaw, Paula Frisbee, Raymond Everett Kinstler, Jessica Artman, Angela Cunningham, Cornelia Hernes and Simone Mortiz.  Her paintings and sculptures are represented in homes and institutions throughout Virginia and beyond.
