Old Masters Academy course student
… A year ago I began studying this wonderful course. I read and listened over and over again all the art lessons and art history. I was overwhelmed by all the information and precision of the art lessons. So much to learn and practice. Let me tell you, I was pretty scared. I had a lot of work ahead of me, but I enjoyed it so much.
Even if I’m retired, I am a very busy lady. I took my time and went through nearly all of the lessons and did the exercises. My goal was to paint a portrait in the style of the 16th century. …
… A happy member and student of the Old Masters Academy.
Ivo, the Old Masters Academy student
My name is Ivo Bulicic, age 71, now finally enjoying enough quality time to revert to my ever-lasting passion-painting. My carrier of Master of Electrical/Mechanical engineering, as it could be expected, has not been an inviting environment for practicing necessary techniques, nevertheless I’ve been striving as much as I could. I am now happy to be able to advance into more complex techniques and knowledge. …
Before and After by an Old Masters Academy student
I am a happy grandma of three grandchildren.
I’m a single mom of two, and I work as a social worker. When I was a child, I did quite well in art classes and enjoyed drawing a lot. I was thinking that one day I would start living my life as I had dreamed. Each New Year I wrote a new year’s resolution with a hope that I would definitely find some time for learning art again. Sometimes I felt so desperate and hopeless that my dream would ever come true. …
…I can only imagine what my painting skills would be today if I’d taken this course thirty years ago, when I was a bit younger.
Artwork by Stephen Jamison
… I was able to retire from full time employment in 2007 and discovered a real passion for painting again, I was lucky enough to receive a decent commission which inspired me to take up painting full time.
For over 30 years I had painted alla prima pretty much in the style of the impressionists but I was increasingly dissatisfied with the results and wanted to achieve a higher standard and improve my ability. I began to study the methods of the old masters and at this time I discovered the Old Master’s Academy. …
How I Painted My First Reproduction of an Old Master’s Art
My name is Gilberto Mello, I have been a student in the Art Academy courses for a number of years. Just recently I joined the Old Masters Academy program, with Natalie Richy. I am enjoying the Old Masters courses a great deal and I am pleased by the very comprehensive and easy to follow lessons provided in the program, which I can review as many times as necessary, learning at my own pace.
I thrive to become a better artist every step of the way, so in my attempts to produce new paintings I tend to observe and question how the Old Masters have reached their glorious results.
