His love for antiques kept Frank busy for over four decades in “The Wooden Works” his popular woodworking and antique restoration shop in the Texas Hill Country. The shop, as eclectic as the artist himself, was also involved with furniture building, cabinets, stringed instrument making, signs, and more.
Frank opened “Sant’Agata School of Art” in 1986. He taught children grades K-12 to draw what they “saw,” rather than what they “thought.” His successful teaching method is completely unique, and has proved to hundreds of children, adults, and seniors; they could learn to draw well in very little time. Frank continues to offer art and craft workshops from time to time and private lessons on a limited schedule. A renaissance man in the purest sense, Sant’Agata is a rarity in our modern world. But best by far is his willingness to share!
