Wrapping Up

 the Thoughtful Isolation Project

The last entry was received the first week in September. We are working to organize them into a digital record. When all is ready, we will have close to sixty wonderful works to show to each other!

A date will be chosen for our potluck gathering and sharing of art work as soon as we get the Covid green light from the Abbot.

We will be in touch with all the painters soon!

Abbey Art Works' Signature Class*

designed by AAW 

Artistic Director, Lyn Hill Taylor. 

The Eight Week Introduction

This method uniquely combines three processes:  the traditional Atelier System, as in the old guilds or Renaissance workshops; the results of decades of research, study, professional practice in the art of painting; and scientific investigation and experimentation in contemporary neuroscience, with provable, repeatable results.

The teaching program is based on a unique method,developed at Abbey Art Works, "Leonardo's Legacy:

Painting, Science, and the Life of the Soul" where Da Vinci's own words, seen through modern science's

knowledge of visual perception, has shown that we all have the tools to draw and paint successfully.

Students learn the importance of mindful preparation for the learning experience, the nature of the

creative model, the path to 'the flow', and how our brain teaches us to paint.

 

Color theory is explored. We learn the fascinating history

of the Renaissance artist's use of earth pigments, the

Impressionist's  new mineral palette, and the modern

artist's chemical colors. 

Mixing and using color becomes easy through the

introduction of our exclusive AAW Teaching

Palettes and

the Munsell Color Sphere.  

 

Through assigned projects, students

progressively

learn to understand the AAW Method in the

process

of painting.

The result is a teaching program that opens

the world of painting to all, that proves its

effectiveness with the most recent

neuroscience, and shows how the

contemplative nature of painting is

simply good for the soul.

This Program was designed for all those people who always wanted

to give painting a try.

It is not too late. Our oldest student is 96 years old.
