In 1955, she enrolled in the Brooklyn Museum School, where she studied with Reuben Tam (1916 - 1991) and William Kienbusch (1914 - 1980) for four years. During this time, Kornbluth painted in and out of the studioincluding the Freeport marshes and Jones Beachand her work became increasingly abstract.
It was Tam who encouraged Kornbluth to exhibit her work at the Brooklyn Museum and the City Center Gallery, in addition to introducing her to Maines Monhegan Island in 1957she would later credit Tam with: defining me as the artist I had never envisioned becoming.
