    Beginning Classical Painting Instructors: Cheryl Kline Wednesdays 6:30-9:30pm or Thursdays 10am-1pm $260 for 4 week session (This class has no drop-in option) To Register, call (310)[masked] or Paypal HERE (https://www.klineacademy.com/classical-painting-workshop) What you will learn Renaissance Painting Techniques Monochromatic studies Learn a method of deconstructing a painting How to apply color & how to mix paint Using mediums Glazing Secrets Live Demonstrations Personalized Instruction I can't tell you how many students come to me who have had years of art school, have never been "taught" how to paint! But their frustration ends at our front door! Whenever an Artist speaks about a "linage" of instruction, it is a proud declaration of where their knowledge came from. Ours is a fusion of Northern European, Classical Italian and California Impressionism. With this background we can hone in on an individual's choice of style once foundations in painting are achieved. The first “initiation” exercise that students in this class must accomplish is our Compass Rose exercise. This exercise teaches the student first, basic skills for blending, glazing etc. the Zorn palette of colors and then introduces the student to a new way of “seeing.” Please bring your own materials You can find the supply list for this class HERE (https://www.klineacademy.com/classical-painting-workshop-supplies) The second exercise is a tradition that has been practiced for centuries.. copying old master paintings. It’s as if Di Vinci himself were sitting on your shoulder and speaking to you, revealing his secrets from centuries past...and is now your teacher ...and all you have to do is listen. Copying got a bad wrap in the last century because it became synonymous with “cheating.” I assure you that it is not! Try to copy the Mona Lisa or any Carravagio. It is one of the most incredible learning experiences. To this day when in a european museum you will see a student with easel “copying” an old master. After a series of copies, I encourage students to explore many other styles. Palette knife paintings, landscapes, still lifes and to explore images that move them in some way but to continue to use and apply the principles that they have learned in their previous exercises.

I have a firm belief that anyone can learn to draw and "talent" is really just another word for "dedication and passion"!

Working from Drawings by Charles Bargue and from Classical Casts, you will have the opportunity to learn the techniques of Sight Size and Comparative Measurement in order to accurately draw what you see...and have fun! Working in Graphite and Charcoal, students will learn the language of the line and the beauty of these traditional mediums. You will feel like you are transported right into a French academy! This class is designed for all levels. Not sure this class is for you? I encourage you to just drop in for a few sessions and give it a try! This drawing course is an invaluable tool for any artist.
