Art Cohan

Art is an accomplished, award-winning actor and director who has worked extensively for over 30 years in New York and Los Angeles in theater, film and television. Art first started his studies with Milton Katselas in 1987 in a workshop in New York and has been a regular member of the BHP community since 1992. In addition to his regular scene study classes, Art teaches our “What’s This Play About” class and the BHP Audition Workshop, a 12-week intensive where actors can discover what’s getting in the way of them booking jobs and solve that problem. Many of his students enjoy a higher percentage of callbacks, booking ratios and landing professional representation.

Art’s primary focus is human nature and he is passionately committed, dedicated, and devoted to the student who wishes to understand every aspect of emotion, motivation, agenda, plot, plan, scheme or trick that any human is capable of in trying to determine a character. Many of his students credit him with changing their life as a person as well as a performer. It’s one thing to dig deep inside and find your strengths and weaknesses to make the character live and breathe; it’s quite another to take that inner journey and re-emerge with additional personal power as a human and an artist.
