Early Paintings

While Schlossberg-Cohen has spent a lifetime in the arts, he had very little formal training in fine art until his late teens and early twenties. His experiences as a Freshman at the Maryland Institue of Art and one summer at the Art Students League in New York City enabled Jay to explore classical painting techniques. Unlike other fine artists today, Jay’s technical skills and sense of composition is a function of his mastering of the classical approach to fine art.
