This training and curriculum is created from the best and most effective traditional methods and
techniques used in 19th-century European academies and private ateliers, the apprentice system
of the renaissance. The result is a rigorous and demanding system, which also offers the greatest
flexibility to meet the specific needs of each student so that they progress at their own best pace.
Thecurriculum is designed as a systematic progression, which breaks down the altogether
complex and intimidating challenge of learning to draw and paint realistically from life, into
practical stages. Each stage requires that the student acquire and demonstrate specific skills
before advancing to the next and more challenging stage. Students therefore progress through the
curriculum in a logicaland step-by-step fashion leading ultimately to free and confident painting
in oil. The speed at which a student advances through the curriculum is directly related to how
much time and effort they invest. Students will receive personalized critiques and instruction
during each training session that relates specifically to their needs.

specific order.

Introduction to Your Training:
Before you start your training I wanted to give you an overview of the process and the thinkingbehind the curriculum. Often, students are asked to work hard for years and are never allowed to
question their teachers. Even if they don’t understand why they are doing something, they are
encouraged to keep silent and trust the teacher blindly. I don’t intend to ridicule any other
teaching methods throughout the course of this training; however, I do want you to always know
why I am askingyou to do something. Before you even put down your first pencil stroke I want
to make sure that you understand the reason and necessity to do so.
The training you will be receiving from me is rooted heavily in the classical tradition, but I do
not teach a particular “method”. My goal as a teacher is to give students, in a logical way, the
information and skills they need to be great artists.If I feel something is useful and works then I
will use it. If I don’t think something is useful and is considered “busy work” than I will not use
it. First and foremost I want you to know that my goal is to have you understand what you are
doing, why you are doing it, and how to go about accomplishing it.
To learn these basics takes most people anywhere from 2 ½ - 5 years depending on how...
