Classical Drawing Atelier: A Contemporary Guide to Traditional Studio Practice Hardcover
Ateliers have produced the greatest artists of all time - and now that educational model is experiencing a renaissance. These are based on the nineteenth-century model of teaching artists by pairing them with a master artist over a period of years. "Classical Drawing Atelier" is an atelier in a book - and the master is Juliette Aristides, a classically trained artist. Aristides uses the works of works of Old Masters and today's most respected realist artists to demonstrate and teach the principles of realist drawing and painting, taking students step by step through the learning curve yet allowing them to work at their own pace. Unique and inspiring, "Classical Drawing Atelier" is a serious art course for serious art students. Juliette Aristides, whose beautiful art is featured throughout this book, is the founder and director of the Classical Atelier at the Seattle Academy of Fine Arts. She studied with realist master Jacob Collins and at the National Academy of Design.
