The Academy is a two-year training program focusing on the methods and information presented in 19th century ateliers and academies. The second year painting program is detailed in this book. The fully illustrated text is organized into 3 sections. The first section provides schedules, course descriptions, supply lists, and assignment guidelines. The second section details concepts of painting, including materials, types of realism, numerous methods of applying paint, and important information on color. The third section is filled with illustrated demonstrations and step-by-step guides walking the student through processes first demonstrated in class. The end of the book follows with a glossary of terms, as well as suggested books, magazines, and artists for students to research. With nearly 500 full color images, 21 demonstrations, and tons of information that ties back to the methods and techniques of the old masters, this book provides a new and unique link to the art schools of the past without the cost or time of attending an atelier or school. This book initially began as an accompaniment to the assignments and lessons in class. From its initial inception, it has grown in content and evolved in format, and now can educate independently from The Academy program. It was, however, written in conjunction with a series of videos that dive into the topics and processes in greater detail. The videos offer nearly 100 hours of footage covering 22 demonstrations, 8 lectures, and instructions for all the assignments taught in class. Together the book and videos form the "Classical Painting Bundle." For more information about the videos, visit Timothy Rees trained and taught at the Palette and Chisel Academy in Chicago, IL before relocating to Scottsdale, AZ. Here he wrote, developed, and launched The Academy training program at Scottsdale Artists' School and Rees Atelier.
