Even if its importance in the area of fine art has seen to be lessened there are still so many disciplines like conservation, portraiture and scenography where a rigorous training like this is necessary.

It was a pleasure to have been associated with the University of Hawaii as System Photographer, 2007-2008.

I have taken the atelier twice and assisted/participated in all the others. Courses that I attended as an undergraduate at “another institution” touched on some of ideas that are explored in the atelier, however there was little time to explore any of these ideas in depth before we moved on to another technique. The atelier is fast paced and requires a bit of stamina, but allows students to practice the concepts to their completion. The result is that when a drawing or painting is completed, wether it is successful or not, the artist leaves with knowledge of the process and steps to provide a strong foundation for further exploration. If you think the price is steep, take a look at the cost of some of the other atelier programs around the country or in Europe. Mahalo to Snowden and Norm for another wonderful session. I think I have finally recovered!

Anyone really worthy of being an artist must master techniques and realism. Picasso did and he became a pioneer in taking art in new directions. He truly created and evolved as an artist- and the world seems to have recognized his accomplishment. Anyone thinking they can skip the step of learning to draw and just needs to slop paint onto canvas, assuming their emotion is all that is needed to be a creator of “modern art”, produces neither an intellectual nor an artistic addition for humanity.

I got a good sense of their accomplishments from instructor and student testimony.

I was a student of Ken Kingrey’s, back in the 60′s. The Old Masters were studied only in art history classes. But now these students are getting into the techniques! Marvelous!

Atelier Hawaii intrigues and excites the possible artist within me. What first steps or suggested first classes would be suggested for someone like me – a novice with interest but unclear aptitude, soon to have more time to devote to exploration?
