Living Art Studio exists to meet the express needs of students eager to learn the aesthetic and philosophical principles of humanist realism and the techniques espoused by great artists.
Under the direction of Marina Bichinsky, renowned realist painter, artists at Living Art Studio practice the techniques of drawing and painting as the foundation for creative expression and meaningful visual communication. Working in the studio, artists progress from basic skills, such as gesture and proportion, as they draw in charcoal, to more advanced color study and other dynamic techniques as they paint still life, the figure, portraits, landscapes and interiors.
Students study in intensive small groups with instructors whom Marina has trained and with guest artists who are masters in their own right.
Each program runs for twelve consecutive weeks, with one extra week for any make-up days. Enrollment for each course is limited and is first-come, first-serve basis.
Many of the classes fill up quickly, so make sure to register early to ensure your child a spot in the courses they desire.
