Professional artist and teacher Mandy Boursicot has won international awards and competitions and been published in Strokes of Genius among other journals. After intensive study at an Art Academy in Florence, she became a Master of the Classical Realism method.  She’s an excellent teacher with experience instructing animators, young professional artists, adults developing personal interests and children coming to drawing for the first time. 

She presents a step by step method that introduces students to the basic concepts of the classical order of light—line shape and volume. Her progressive exercises are designed to sharpen the skills involved in rounding the form, toning and bringing drawings to a complete finish. Whatever level of drawing and painting students bring to her studio, her well-tested method enhances everyone’s drawing and painting.

With these traditional skills, students can pursue their individual interests.  The fundamental concepts and techniques find ready application in all drawing and painting as well as in photography more experimental art forms. While the method is rigorous, everyone progresses at their own pace in an encouraging environment.
