Devoted to promoting the Boston School of Painting and the art of those studying and attempting to paint in this style--the longest continuing tradition of painting in American art. Its roots go back to R. H. Gammell, Edmund Tarbell, William McGregor Paxton, Jean-Leon Gerome, Paul Delaroche, and Jacques Louis David.
from the high school atelier I taught this past school year:
All the images below were created by 9th and 10th graders, one student was an 11th grader.
I was very impressed with the student work and their efforts at learning
to see and use the strategies of the training to capture the visual
image. It was hard to squeeze down the excellent Atelier training I
enjoyed for approx. 6 years at Ingbretson Studios with Paul Ingbretson....but the kids did get a taste of the
training. The last shot is of me in one of the rooms.
Now that school is out, I hope to work more on some of my works in process!
