As new registration opens today I would like to reach out and share a little of what you can expect from my Atelier and 6 week classes!
In my Atelier program and 6 week courses I will be including the classical foundations that you are familiar with in addition to contemporary techniques that I learned in my time at Ani Art Academy Waichulis. You will be able to continue to work on current creative projects as well as work through a curriculum that adds to your creative toolbox!
Emphasis will be focused on understanding of how light interacts with the four basic forms, materials, paint handling, in depth knowledge of graphite as well as charcoal and pastel, so that you are able to achieve a more polished and realistic quality in your work if you so choose. We will explore painting/drawing from life using comparative measurement and sight size methods as well as window shade method using a photograph reference.
We will also learn how to photograph references, photoshop basics and lessons in composition. In addition to these lessons, you will create works using indirect and alla prima techniques.
This foundation will allow you to have the ability to create whatever you choose with a high level of skill and confidence in your abilities to do so. I look forward to seeing you all in the studio and am eager to assist you in your creative journey!
