Learn from the masters
David Leffel is not only recognized by his peers as a painters’ painter, he is also considered by many to be no less than the artistic reincarnation of Rembrandt. A talented writer, Leffel has authored two important art books, An Artists Teaches: Reflections on the Art of Painting and Self-Portraits: A Journey of Insight
Sherrie McGraw studied and taught painting and drawing at the famous Art Students League of New York. Recent recognitions include an honorary doctorate from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco for her accomplishments in the art world and a rare medal from the Butler Institute of American Art. She is widely recognized as a prominent artist of our time.
Jacqueline Kamin’s illustrious career was nurtured at the Corcoran Museum School and later at the Sculpture Studio and the Art Students League in New York. Her poetic and painterly style developed early on and soon became recognized by many prestigious art organizations through awards and juried shows at the Bowers Museum, the Salmagundi Club, the California Art Club and Oil Painters of America.
Stacy studied illustration and traditional animation at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, earning a BA in 2000. Drawn to the dramatic effects of Rembrandt, Stacy sought out the instruction of two well-known masters of this knowledge—David A Leffel and Sherrie McGraw. She credits their influence for the startling light that she is able to achieve in her own work. “They introduced me to Abstract Realism, a way of painting so rich that I can’t imagine my education ever ending—I will be a student of this great tradition for my entire life.”
Classes in all mediums
We offer instruction in all types of mediums from drawing to oil painting.
“I loved every moment of it. I especially was fascinated by the closeups of the actual brushstrokes. So many of my questions were answered during these 7 days.”
“The richness of the content, the integrity of the process and I love that I can watch the videos again for the next 90 days. Glorious!”
“Watching each artist paint and having him/her explain the thoughts behind the choice of stroke, value, and color is incredible. Also being able to sit at my kitchen table and not have to leave home, but have the opportunity to learn and be inspired.”
