Tomoko Kamiyama studied under Nelson Shanks, Frank L. Porcu, and Richard C. Pionk at the Art Students League of New York.  

There, she was trained in pastel drawing techniques by Richard C. Pionk, in depicting anatomy through Ecorche—showing the individual muscles and bones of the figure— by Frank L. Porcu as well as how to take measure of color surface by Nelson Shanks.
