Learn to draw , sculpt, and/or paint in Renaissance style-from professional artist

Methodology


My formation as a sculptor infused my artistic view with the fascination of three dimensionality, and with the constant impulse of understanding forms in all angles.
Drawing is an obsession for me—line and form in all their aspects have been a constant in my artwork.
I am fascinated with the human figure, in all its aspects: physical, spiritual, and natural, social, historical-temporal.
It is the continuity through time (as art-history proves) that provides a never-ending source of inspiration for me.

Teaching Philosophy

In the studio I often use technical demonstrations, particularly in beginning classes.
I start with basic concepts (proportion, composition, structure) and then gradually expand the difficulty grade of the assignments. Since I was classically trained in a European Institution, I find it easy to blend concepts of traditional training and contemporary experiments. This philosophy translates in a course based on solid study of volumetric forms as well as on personal exploration of different expression modalities.

The classes I teach are a combination of studio work, art history and theory presentations, as well as practical exercises and innovative experiments. I present to the students different techniques of drawing, together with examples from Classical Masters and Modern Artists. After the presentation I demonstrate the practical way of that particular technique. The students have my undivided attention for each assignment.
All the aspects of my teaching philosophy – theoretical presentations, examples of Masters’ work and technique demonstrations - lead to an in depth course, which is well structured and focused on understanding the importance of both creativity and craftsmanship.
