Want to paint more like Manet and less like Jackson Pollock? Students of art hailedClassical Drawing Atelier, Juliette Aristides's first book, as a dynamic return to the atelier educational model. Ateliers, popular in the nineteenth century, teach emerging artists by pairing them with a master artist over a period of years. The educational process begins as students copy masterworks, then gradually progress to painting as their skills develop. The many artists at every level who learned fromClassical Drawing Atelierhave been clamoring for more of this sophisticated approach to teaching and learning. InClassical Painting Atelier, Aristides, a leader in the atelier movement, takes students step-by-step through the finest works of Old Masters and today's most respected realist artists to reveal the principles of creating full-color realist still lifes, portraits, and figure paintings. Rich in tradition, yet practical for today's artists,Classical Painting Atelieris ideal for serious art students seeking a timeless visual education.
