Figure Painting Intensive: Edinburgh, Scotland

Figure Painting Intensive in Scotland

at the Edinburgh Atelier of Fine Art 

Atelier education is centered on the belief that working in a studio, not sitting in the lecture hall, is the best place to learn about art. Every artist needs to learn basic drawing skills.

In this workshop, master contemporary artist and best selling author Juliette Aristides breaks down the drawing process into small, manageable lessons; presents them progressively; introduces time-tested principles and techniques in the Atelier tradition that are easily accessible; and shares the language and context necessary to understand the artistic process and create superior, well-crafted drawings.
Ateliers have produced the greatest artists of all time - and now that educational model is experiencing a renaissance.

Each day will be a mixture of demonstrations, group discussions, and personal critiques.

Suitable for all levels of experience.

All materials provided

Included in the workshop cost will be a copy of Juliette’s new book “Beginning Drawing Atelier” and time to work through some of the exercises in class.

“I have met many thousands of artists over the last fifty years of painting and thirty-five years of making paint. Very rarely do I meet someone who is as good at writing as she is at her visual art. Juliette Aristides is one such person–both a terrific writer and great artist.” –Robert Gamblin, founder of Gamblin Artist Colors

“There are few who know about classical painting like Juliette Aristides. The book is the next best thing to studying with her in person.”
–B. Eric Rhoads, publisher of Fine Art Connoisseur and PleinAir magazines

"Juliette Aristides, a leader in the revival of classical realism, outlines ways anyone can learn to draw—and why it’s imperative for today’s society."
–John Burger, writer and reporter
