Academic or Classical Course

This course is about classical basis of fine art. Students who choose a classical course of study start with the fundamentals. It includes learning how to observe and see things as an artist, interpreting play between light and shadow and transforming this interpretation in to 3- dimensional image on 2D surface. We won’t be working from the photographs, painting from the real life only, learning different techniques and approaches and developing your own artistic vision and style. If you are an academically trained artist, who wants to continue studying then together we can make customized course in order to concentrate on specific areas you’d like to improve in.
