To Learn all I can from the past for a brighter future
My name is Samuel Antonio Maita (nicknamed Sam Pako). I am a 23-year-old artist on the rise, from Venezuela living in the United States.
I’m primarily self-taught in drawing, painting and photography from a very young age. I came across the Web Art Academy Course when it was first announced. From then on, I take the lessons slowly to learn all I can from them, for I am committed to progress my craft and my living as an artist.
Ever since I was a young boy, the artworks that fascinated me the most were the classics, especially works by the Italian maestro Leonardo da Vinci; I have learned a great deal from looking at his drawings.
Now that I have been taken up painting, I’m now interested in his work in oils. I’m now open to the teachings of other masters as well, masters like Rembrandt that soon grabbed my attention. But it can be most intimidating to face their work and attempt something just as grand, particularly alone, where no one knows how or what to being with.
Art for me is more than my passion, it is my purpose; it’s my intention to learn all I can from the history of past styles, techniques and methods in art, to better and develop my own. So, when I heard about this new painting course on the old masters at this time, I wanted to join the learning experience. Though my carrier as an artist began not long ago, and I’m building up my body of work, I wouldn’t miss the chance to learn from the greats if given the opportunity.
I am grateful and appreciative for the amount of knowledge available through the courses this team provides. To me it treasured intensely for my coming as an artist, and will continue to be that way for me for all time.
Thank you very much,
