The Alvarez Art School will be closed for the remainder of the week. The regular class schedule will resume on Monday 2 April 2018. See you then www.alvarezschool.com
This a friendly reminder that Alla Prima Painting class will not meet so we could attend this cool event, my friend Trevor Thomas set up. https://facebook.com/photo.php/…
The Alvarez Art School has moved from studio G to studio J which is clear across the hall. This studio is smaller and class sizes will be limited. There are still spots open in the Drawing from Life Classes which meet on Mondays 10:00-noon and Thursdays 6:00-8:00. The painting class which meets on Thursday 10:00 a.m.- 1:00 p.m. may be full, but I have begun a second painting class which meets on Tuesdays same time and there is room for a couple more painters. Call (719)337-2863 for more information.

Hey everyone, the holiday music mix (not christmas music) has been compiled and burnt to disc. It's one of the best ones yet. If you want one you have to come to class. This years mix includes work by some of our fallen angels, Tom Petty, Leonard Cohn, and of course Prince. For more information call (719) 337-2863. See in you in class.
We were live at the The Second Floor Studios with PeakRadar.com, Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region today for a sneak peak of our artist’s studios in preparation for our Holiday Show.

For tonight's Drawing From Life class we'll continue with fine tuning the initial gesture so it will serve as a relaiable foundation for later stages of the drawing. We'll also resume our study of key skeletal land marks and how to use them to give the drawing a natural feel. I hope you can make it. Call (719)337-2863 for information or to sign up for this fun and challenging drawing course.
I usually teach classes to groups of artists of mixed abilities. Beginners are learning about and trying out new skills while advanced students are working on mastery. It has been suggested that this teaching model is intimidating to beginning students. I'd like to get some thoughts as I am considering offering an introductory figure drawing class or maybe just a beginning drawing class. Please offer any thoughts. In the meantime enjoy these one minute sharpie drawings done with the non-dominant hand. Thanks
