The classical method of painting provides a logical (and therefore learnable)
framework for “building” a realistic two-dimensional representation
of a three-dimensional object. The method incorporates time-tested principles
of art and science that can truly be learned and mastered by most anyone
willing to apply themselves. It is a method that not only facilitates
the creation of beautiful paintings, but also connects the artist to
the great masters of renaissance art in a way that can be quite inspiring.
The classical method helps give you the confidence necessary to produce
artistic works that you may have not thought you were capable of – even
works that aspire to the level of history’s most talented artists.

| Sherry is personally
committed to the classical/academic approach to painting. More importantly,
She is thoroughly committed to sharing underlying principles, knowledge
and skills of the classical/academic approach with all of her students.
Sherry’s success comes from not simply showing her students how
to do something, but from helping them understand why it should be
done a certain way. That level of understanding is what ultimately
allows her students to become self-sufficient, capable and confident.
