While a small live audience watches the demo, Facebook users around the globe are encouraged to make comments and ask questions about the painting process. Faculty members Dan Thompson and Natalie Italiano moderate, taking the best questions and getting answers from the artists.

All three artists showcase the Studio Incamminati approach - an innovative curriculum teaching a gestural direct-style painting method that combines academic drawing, form painting with a broad color palette. However, as the demo progresses, the individual style of each artist shines through showing the broad flexibility of the school's approach.
