The making of art requires more than just expression. Artists not only EXPRESS ideas in work but they must also be able to PERCEIVE the world around them. Since the first spark of consciousness lit the pathway to the birth of Civilization man has endeavored to portray and capture flickers of the lonely vastness of his Universe, to portray that most intangible quality; the essence of being human. The expression of humanity communicated and preserved in tangible form. Art comes not so much from a knowledge of colors to mix, drawing skills, or the laws of perspective but from the adoption of a method of analysis of the world around us. A painting is an illusion, of space, of depths, of solid objects. Understand the mechanism of phenomena in nature and you can imprison it in two dimensions, in a painting. In this program, we will endeavor to show you that this ability is inherent in all and there is but one step in its attainment. It requires merely a change - a change in perception.
