Art of Illusions
Angelina is a classically trained artist. She teaches skill-based, classical drawing and painting. This is the type of art that was taught from the Renaissance until the 19th century to generations of young people. Strongly believes that classical, skill-based, visual art is very important in the overall education of our youth, and current brain function data is beginning to confirm that belief. Not only does this type of art training improve brain function, but it also helps produce well-rounded, educated people.
My students learn to draw and paint what they see, thereby developing skills that improve concentration, discipline, and other perceptive skills such as: seeing things in context, seeing the whole picture, seeing in proportion and perspective with spatial relations, intuitive thought, creative thinking, and problem solving.
Teaches sight-size and comparative drawing skills, light-logic and how to create the feeling of volume, composition, perspective, paint handling, color theory, and encourages keeping an art journal. Stresses learning to draw and paint what is seen, rather than what one thinks he sees.
Angelina teaches children ages 6 - 18, and adults as private students or in groups. Teaches in my studio in Rancho Cucamonga. Target area is Inland Empire, also including West Covina, Covina, Glendora, San Dimas, LaVerne, and Claremont.
Studied classical art at Angel Academy of Art in Florence, Italy; and Landscape and Mural Painting classes from renowned French muralist, Pascal Amblard; and faux marble painting from French master, Pierre Le Fumat.
