Paint Like The Best

One of our popular classes is where our students learn how to duplicate paintings from master artists. I realize that duplicating other artists‘ paintings can be controversial because apparently it takes the creativity out of the creation process.

However, this method has its own purpose in the learning process. One of the most efficient ways to learn the greatest artists' techniques is to copy their artwork.

Through duplicating paintings of the great masters of all times, our students will learn the techniques and styles used in a variety of art movements including:

  • Renaissance
  • Classicism
  • Realism
  • Expressionism
  • Impressionism
  • Post-Impressionism

Studying the Artworks of Greatest Artists

These techniques are important in developing our students‘ own style. They can apply these techniques and methods to other mediums such as pastel and watercolor. During these classes, we focus on learning the greatest artists‘ methods of mixing colors and bringing life into their paintings. Students can learn step-by-step how these prominent artists created their artworks and learn their unique ways of painting. By duplicating some of the greatest artworks, our students will understand and assimilate various art techniques used throughout history. Through this method, they will also be able to realize the importance of these genial artists‘ contributions to art history.
