2018 Fall Trimester


The 2018 Fall Trimester is divided into two 5-week segments: The first half with Oleg Korolev and the second half with Autumn Skye Morrison.

During the First Half of the Trimester Oleg Korolev will transmit Classical Academy methods based on drawing from life, and share Visionary techniques for receiving image impressions, to create a complex composition in a two layered alla prima approach – beginning in white, black & brown tempera and finishing in oils.

During the Second Half of the Trimester Autumn Skye Morrison will show you how to delicately layer acrylics, working from reference & imagination. Looking deeply into the mirror of the canvas, you will be invited to see the world & yourself in new ways, weaving depth & personal symbolism into your painting.
