First and foremost, I would like to say thank you to Leslie Lienau for laying the foundation of Oklahoma Academy of Classical Art. Through your leadership you have created a wonderful home for creatives to practice their craft in the Classical Tradition. We appreciate all of your hard work and dedication to the Oklahoma art community.
I am delighted to be the new Director/ Principal Instructor for OACA.I look forward to maintaining the important fundamental ideals that Leslie put in place, as well as expanding the curriculum to employ the contemporary techniques that I learned in my time at Ani Art Academy Waichulis.
In the Adkisson Atelier, students will be allowed to continue previous/current creative projects as well as work through tested exercises that advance understanding of how to translate subjects from life to a 2D surface. In addition to working from life students will learn how to photograph references, photoshop basics, lessons in composition, and how to create a realistic piece using a photograph reference. This and other classes will resume the week of July 13th and registration will be available on the website on July 3rd.
I look forward to working with Claire, Chris and Tracey to grow OACA and instilling a passion for virtuosity in the students that choose to study with us! I look forward to seeing you all in the studio soon!
If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at email@example.com.
