TEACHERS

Terry Knickerbocker Founder of  Terry Knickerbocker Studios “My intention as a teacher is to have the student to be an artist who demonstrates consistency, sensitivity, creativity, and a willingness to take risks. Who is alive, alert, ready to work, curious, disciplined, playful, open, and flexible. To be a consummate listener, to be able to improvise fluidly from moment to moment, to have a vivid imagination, to have an ability and fearless willingness to access every part of yourself emotionally with courage and ease. The practical result of this is a self-sufficient artist, an essential collaborator in your own right; an equal partner in the artistic conversation.”
Clients: Oscar winner Sam Rockwell, Michelle Williams, Emmy Rossum, Sasha Baron Cohen, Zac Efron, John Leguziamo, Abbi Cornish, Boyd Holbrook, Natahsa Lyonne, Josh Charles, Leslie Bibb, Lili Taylor, Gretchen Mol and many others.
