Welcome to 1art.com Teaching Zone!
This TEACHING ZONE has been created specifically for those who are uncertain whether theyshould by the Video Workshop but are interested in learning more about the classical painting technique.As I said elsewhere in my site, my main goal is to share my knowledge with as many people as possible;and the membership fee is so low that using the Teaching Zone will be affordable to practically everyoneinterested in the Old Masters' oil painting technique. The Teaching Zone was created on the basis of themy Video Workshop and takes the form of an Internet book with appropriate interactive multimediatechnology.
Hi, my name is Alexei Antonov. This is my first video course of classical painting technique. It is not just an art workshop. This is my first action for the ecology of culture. Exponents of modern art may findsome of my ideas politically incorrect. This course, however, has been made for those who treasureeternal values in art. Enjoy the show!When we come in the museum and view pictures of Old Masters of the Renaissance epoch, we arefascinated by their art, or, rather, by their craft. Subtle nuances of tone and color, precision of expressionof texture and surface details. And the enigmatic lunar color in half-tones! We begin to feel that OldMasters were different from us. Were they better than our generation?Then, entering a modern art hall, we see pictures that depict triangles, squares, and other unidentifiableforms, produced by splashing and slapping paint, and not only paint, with brushes, and sometimes notonly brushes, on canvas, and sometimes not only on canvas. To make an abstract picture requiresneither skill nor time, unlike a classical still life or portrait.But if you were offered a choice of a beautiful still life and an abstract painting, showing a black or redtriangle, which one would you chose if, say, the price were the same? Perhaps you will agree with methat most people would choose a beautiful still life.
In conclusion of this brief introduction, some words should be said about every artist's material concerns.Experience has shown that the classical school of painting can be studied without having a special"talent." The only condition is a passionate desire to learn and a little patience. The material aspect israther important in this world of ours.If you feel you can be an artist and support your family and yourself with the money earned by painting,remember, the competition in the art market is fierce.And in the struggle you have to win not by begging the gallery owner to take your painting onconsignment explaining verbally how extraordinary and talented you are. You can win by simplyshowing the gallery owner fragment of your painting and all avant-garde painters will then flee thegallery and go to work at the factory to earn their bread honestly. It is impossible to deceive the world;clarity, virtue, and beauty are returning, throwing deception, ugliness, and sin back into oblivion, wherethey belong.
