The accomplished and diverse faculty of The Teaching Studios of Art hones students’ latent artistic gifts during hands-on classes. Sessions change monthly, with October offerings including Old Master Copy helmed by Adam Miller and second-chaired by a paintbrush-wielding pumpkin. Students study historical painting techniques in the three-hour time slot, plucking a classic work of art to emulate while the instructor leads them through the reproduction process. Kristin Künc’s The Alla Prima Portrait class initiates pupils in the ways of portraiture through line drawings and discussions of portrait masters such as Sargent, Eakins, and Sears Portrait Studio. In addition to learning principles of proportion, contour, and structure, budding artists absorb fundamentals of traditional art that have gone largely untaught since Modernist styles became dominant.
