Self-isolating at home?  It’s the perfect time to work on your drawing skills by copying the old masters.  John A. Varriano will guide you through this time-honored tradition that was practiced by all of the masters we will be studying.  This interactive class will analyze the portrait and human figure in terms of masses, planes and construction lines.  Students will be asked to make copies of lesson plates and master drawings.  The class will combine lecture, demonstrations, and critiques of students’ works.
Wednesdays 10 AM: April 21, 28, May 5, 12

Here is what our students are saying:

“I am so impressed with your program. John V is incredibly generous with his time in the critiques and I have learned so much from them. Not only is he an incredible talent, he is a gifted teacher–always able to find the best
way to convey whatever corrections are needed in a very generous and open way.”

“John is a very skilled and generous teacher. I enjoy the art history and famous artists’ biographical info that he weaves into his classes. WSA is lucky to have a talented artist who is simultaneously a good teacher.”

“John is amazing. He has the personality and talent that keeps me coming back.”

“Mr. Varriano is a master portrait painter and teacher. Being in this interactive class has given me the opportunity to make a lot of progress in my artwork. His instruction is really excellent.”

“John is an excellent teacher, both rigorous and encouraging.”
