ARC Living Master™ Jeffrey Watts News

April 24, 2012

ARC Living Master™, Jeffrey Watts, has made updates to both his personal gallery in the ARC Museum, and the Watts Atelier page as well. They are celebrating 20 Years of Excellence in Art Education this year at Watts Atelier and will round out the year with an Instructor/Student Benefit Show at the new Encinitas Library. They are also working to introduce an online version of their Atelier program:
"This is a tremendous undertaking an feel there is a great need for this type of foundational training for many individuals who are unable to attend our Atelier or another ARC approved program. We receive email requests on a weekly basis from all parts of the globe and as we are not accredited we are unable to assist with student visas. Our goal is to have the online program live in 18 months or less and to compliment the online program with twice yearly Watts Atelier Boot Camp Workshops where students come to Encinitas to work directly with Jeff and our staff for 8 straight days. Our inaugural Boot Camp Workshop was held last fall and was extremely well received with 28 students attending from as far away as Hong Kong and Italy."

The Angel Academy of Art - New Location

April 17, 2012

The Angel Academy of Art moved on April 10th into a new home in one of Florence's beloved neighborhoods close to the city center. They have invested in the long-term future of the Academy by consolidating their campuses and moving both into a vast new studio space.

The exciting new state-of-the-art school was meticulously designed to meet the particular specifications for study of the old master's techniques. The abundance of both natural and controlled lighting is balanced by deep olivecolored walls that accentuate skin tones. The temperature-controlled environment provides optimum comfort during working hours and an elegant exhibition gallery weaves around the studios displaying the remarkable works of students past and present.

They will be hosting an open house of their new facility on April 28th.

New Article: William Bouguereau and his Religious Works

April 5, 2012

Since Easter is right around the corner, we thought it an appropriate time to add this new article to the website by Kara Lysandra Ross, ARC director of Operations.

William Bouguereau (1825-1905), although well known for his paintings of peasant girls and mythological scenes, has also become one of the most beloved religious painters of all times. As a devout catholic, Bouguereau, as so many other religious painters, viewed his work as a form of worship, both of God, and of his most beloved creation, mankind. This article discusses five of Bouguereau’s most important religious works.
