Study Oil Painting & Drawing in Northern Virginia
(updated, year 2012)
Realist Oil Painting and Drawing Lessons available. Learn both classical and contemporary realist techniques from an experienced teacher.
Students start with a series of private drawing lessons. After this intensive "kick-off" series, students meet regularly for individual mentoring until drawing is mastered and naturally graduate to semi-private group lessons. Specialty weekend workshops are also available but fill up quickly.
- Still Life
Small group lessons are taught in an "atelier" (studio) learning environment with only 5-8 people (or fewer). Using this time honored approach (used in schools in Florance Italy), the teaching artist, Tricia Ratliff works with each student (you) to develop a tailored learning path and help you achieve your artistic goals at your own pace without the limitations of a large group class. All ages and experience levels welcome. Learn both classical and contemporary methods of drawing and painting.
Art students at Tricia's atelier learn to paint everything from still life and landscapes to complex artwork of people wearing jewelry, fur, velvet, diamonds, gold, satin and more. Call for details: 703.593.6444
