Imagine painting in Rome one day, Paris another, and New York or London the following day? Perhaps you want to visit some botanical gardens or the inside of a museum... You can do this with a group of your peers and friends from the comfort of your own home. All of this without airfare, hauling luggage, or expensive hotels! Your teacher will be your guide and you will travel and paint together, while learning the alla prima methods needed to record the experience. You will learn how to edit your paintings down to a minimum and keep both fresh colour and brush work throughout the process. You will need to make your own coffee for this tour, pack your own lunch, and instead of flying, you will need a comfortable place to paint at home. This is an online painting course for adults who want to improve their overall skills with painting and drawing. Each week we will be in a different location unless we all decide we’d like to stay in one spot for longer.
Andrew Judd is a professional illustrator and art director. An award winning graduate from the Ontario College of Art, he has exhibited in Vienna, Prague, London, Santa Fe, Montreal and Toronto. Andrew had a unique opportunity to learn the traditions of the Art Students League of New York while working for his first employer, William Biddle. Sharing this information with others in private, classroom, and workshop settings has been an important component of his own personal growth as an artist and teacher. Years of working in the business have taught him how critical the fundamentals of good drawing, value relationships and color are to the success of an image. Painting outdoors, in cafes, or working in the comfort of a studio, Andrew believes a simple, orderly, and knowledgeable working process contribute to the success of good art. Andrew’s illustrations are represented by Masterfile, and his original paintings and drawings are available through Westmount Gallery in Toronto. You can see his work at www.andrewjudd.com
"I am entirely captivated by Andrew's knowledge and methods. This is the first class I have taken anywhere with so much potential to grow, expand, learn in the art form I love.” - Brenda Proulx
