Lessons in Classical Drawing
Ateliers have produced the greatest artists of all time, and now that educational model is experiencing a renaissance. The classical Atelier art training method is based on the nineteenth-century model of teaching artists by pairing them with a master artist over a period of years. Students begin by copying masterworks, then gradually progress to painting as their skills develop. This book presents the works of Old Masters and today s most respected realist artists to demonstrate and teach the principles of realist drawing and painting, taking students step by step through the learning curve yet allowing them to work at their own pace.
