Workshop: Rembrandt and his School
Rembrandt and his school re-wrote the art and craft of oil painting in the 17th century and beyond, and it is beneficial today for any artist to do a master copy from that period. Rembrandt was a complete painter, fluidly employing methods ranging from classic indirect, to direct, and even to what can be likened to sculpting with paint. His approach was efficient yet endlessly expressive, and copying Rembrandt gives painters a deeper understanding of oil painting and its possibilities.
Taught by Visiting Instructor Juan Carlos Martínez, this is a special opportunity to learn with this award-winning artist trained in the atelier tradition. Juan was a senior Instructor at ARA and taught with us for over 15 years. In addition to working on commissions, Juan has acquired an international reputation as an art educator. He has won several awards in the Art Renewal Center’s (ARC) Salon competition, as well as from the Portrait Society of America and the Portrait Society of Canada. Juan authored a popular six-part instructional series in International Artist Magazine entitled “The Academy Way” and has appeared on Bravo! TV’s “Star Portraits” program.
