Here at Vine & Canvas (and you will hear it said so in every class!)
we are Passionate about Supporting Living Artists!
The market for artists such as Warhol, Picasso or Kahlo will always be lively, as everybody wants to add a piece from these great Masters to their collection! However, there are plenty of Living Artists out there who produce works of equal quality and equal relevance as artists from the past. Apart from having an immediate impact on their career, investing in Living Artists can change the future of Art as a whole. If we want to have a constant flow of quality Art in the future, we need to support in the Artists of Today!
How can we all do this?
-Credit each Artist Featured (as best we can to our knowledge)!
-Bring Exposure & Awareness to the general public by sharing on social media!
Give a thumbs up to those Artists you Love!
Share your favorite pieces of Art with the World!
-Buy Art, Orignals & Prints from a Living Artist!
One of the tried and true techniques of classical Art training is to copy the work of the Old Masters, this is known as making a Master Copy. While this isn't as much a part of current art school training in many places it is still a highly valuable undertaking here at Vine & Canvas!
Society today is much more concerned with originality (and copyright infringement) so this kind of training doesn’t take place as often anymore, but copying the work of a Master or, in fact, any other painter whose work you admire is an invaluable and highly instructive practice and one we fully embrace (with a contemporary twist of course!).
Benefits of making a Master Copy :
-You will expand your way of "Seeing"
-You will learn new techniques exploring the properties of colors & paints and their natures through application.
-You will develop resources and skills to bring to your own paintings.
-By copying from successful works of Art you will connect with the thought processes and techniques that the Artists used.
All artworks are copyright by the named artist unless otherwise noted or unknown.
We by no means are trying to steal anyone's artwork here at Vine,
merely learning how to Paint and have a bit of Fun in the process!
