In an atelier, there is a tried and true method of beginning the drawing, blocking-in and defining shadow patterns and finishing with necessary detail. Grigor-portraitThis is the way masters from centuries past have accomplished the beautiful representation of the human form. In painting the same is true, if you have a method to follow it becomes easier to gain the skills for figure painting and drawing. 

Both classes will have long, multi week pose models and Grigor, your excellent instructor, will generously demonstrate and tailor all his instruction to each individual. These are two excellent classes not to be missed, Limited space-call today.
Abstract-student Abstract Painting Workshop

Monday eves 6:30- 9:30 or Tuesdays, 10am to 1pm, $275 pre-paid for the 5 week course   

So what's different about our abstract class? We don't throw the baby out with the bath water -We teach a well worn system based on sound art theories. You will be introduced to new ideas and methods of creating dynamic paintings. Because of Scott's classical background, you will learn modern twists on traditional materials. 
Have you ever pondered the various ways of transforming your painting muse into an abstract expression of how or what you feel? Seems a bit complicated, but worth a shot, right? Take a photo of a specific scene that you are fond of, whether it's a Downtown busy street, the ocean, a sweeping meadow, ect. and begin to understand its rhythm. Is it calm? frantic? Does it overlap in size and shape, is it warm or cool? Next, take your picture and crop it, blow it up, imagine it from a birds eye view. Starting to sound interesting? In this 5 week course with a working, professional artist, You will learn and develop a system of painting abstract imagery that will make your work grow leaps and bounds.
Yeskel will explain the mesh between midcentury abstraction and realism and how it has evolved in today's art world. Learn to paint abstractly while staying intouch with traditional methods and techniques. Both oil and acrylic painters welcome, all levels.Begins March 28 and 29 
Quick Sketch

Quick Sketch is a great way to understand form in a simple approach.  Based on gesture and shape one learns to interpret and design what they see. Many are the uses of this discipline, from Fine Art figure work to projects in the game and concept field.  All require efficient figure drawing skills, and QS can facilitate the editing process of the human form. Esmeralda's  approach incorporates a synthesis of experience from a lifetime of study.  All it takes is direction and dedication. Esmeralda is a master and will demonstrate step by step----this class fills up fast- so call to day to reserve your space.
