What You Will Learn

The teaching philosophy of Dublin Art Studio is to draw on the techniques and methods of all art periods to inform present art practice. Their mission is to help students develop their personal abilities and style quickly and to a high level of competence. Students learn to analyze the work of the artists they admire and implement these techniques in their own practice. Study watercolor, illustration and beautiful techniques in oil painting, such as alla prima, glazing and sfumato. Learn the methods employed by Da Vinci, Goya, Egon Schiele and Gustav Klimt to paint flesh, or how to glaze over a grisaille figure like Ribera and Velazquez. For landscapes, study the work of Monet, Turner and the Russian painter Isaac Levitan. Those interested in contemporary work can learn from the drawing and painting techniques of Jenny Saville, Lucian Freud and Marlene Dumas, or the abstract techniques of Rothko , Diebenkorn and Agnes Martin. People can also take advantage of the monthly museum visits, where you will learn to analyze paintings “in the flesh”, the layers of paint and how they were created.
