I was listening to my audiobook this morning on Creativity. The author interviewed many creative people from many disciplines. He said that creativity could not occur without first mastering the domain in which the creative person works. In other words, unless you know your subject, you cannot add to it.
It’s the same thing with painting. You can’t master the discipline of art without knowing the principles that make art great. The “go-with-the-flow” idea doesn’t work when it comes to creativity. Can you imagine Einstein “going with the flow?” Or Edison?
There is only one way to learn to paint.
You must find a master teacher who is also a master artist. That teacher must be a master of the principles of art along with the techniques of painting.
You, then, must practice those principles and techniques over and over until they become a part of you. There is no other way to mastery.
Do not think this process is a burden. It’s this process of mastery that brings its own joy and satisfaction. It’s the disciplined hours at the canvas that is its own reward. The only real happiness is in the pursuit of a worthwhile goal – not the goal itself. It is the process of creating a work of art that is more rewarding than the finished piece.
We use this process in Master Class. We teach you the same principles that Leonardo and Michelangelo learned when they were teenagers. We use the same teaching principles that the Old Masters used to train their apprentices. And — you can learn in the comfort of your own home — at your own speed.
Become a master of your future. Learn to paint the right way from the start. Join us in Master Class.
