DRAWING
5 WEEK COURSE MODULE
INSTRUCTORS: Jessica Henry;
Daniel Hill Riedel

Drawing from nature is an inexhaustible discipline—critical for each student at every stage of the artistic journey.  Year 2 of RAFA is designed to instruct the student to truly see, understand and use the finer points of drawing. The foundation was laid in the Year 1. In Year 2, students are taught the classical methods of drawing entirely from life. Jessica Henry is the instructor for the first 4 lessons.

Lessons 1 & 2 will focus on time spent outdoors with a simple paper, pencil and time to immerse yourself in the in-depth study of nature and all its intricacies. 

Lessons 3 & 4 focus on drawing the plaster cast; blocking in the form, mapping out the value patterns, and dealing with subtleties of transitions. 

Daniel Hill Riedel teaches Lesson 5, as he demonstrates pencil drawing the portrait. The artist who can draw well, possesses the key to all art!
TECHNICAL SKILLS
3 WEEK COURSE MODULE
INSTRUCTOR: Daniel Hill Riedel

Developing a solid understanding and proper use of technical means and skills is a critical part of every art student’s journey to becoming a well-rounded artist.  This module will be taught by Daniel Hill Riedel.

Lessons 1 – 3: 
– Advanced Perspective
– Composition
– Pen & Ink 

 All courses in this module are designed to take the student’s development into a deeper appreciation of artistic principle and techniques matters that cannot be overlooked. These are fundamental, foundational understandings and skills that each artist needs to utilize in all creative work. The goal is to be able to think, see and create using these principles. The more the artist practices these skills, the sooner they will become second nature. Like learning a language, in time you use  it…it becomes part of who you are and just do it.
WATERCOLOR

WHAT SOME OF OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING
I encourage anyone who is thinking about joining the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts…do it! 

I couldn't sign up fast enough for this opportunity! I signed up for the whole package—first year 1-time payment—because it is definitely the most cost effective. I purchased two of Renaissance Creative Arts previous lessons and I am still learning from them! Knowing the quality of those lessons, I knew the investment in the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts was absolutely worth it! I am excited and can't wait to get started!

Jessica Henry and Daniel Hill Riedel are so supportive and encouraging. They have worked hard to make this academy a reality. To be a part of it right from the start is really exciting! And, I am looking forward to learning from the other group members, seeing their works and sharing with them in our private Facebook page.

Lesson One! Wow! What a great lesson! I really liked the negative space concept and I can tell right away I'm going to have to practice it a lot! This was so much fun. I'm going to do a few of these over several more times. 

Thanks Jessica for the wonderful lesson! I really learned a LOT! I watched the video several times. So, in that regard, it doesn't matter if it's live or not. I have practiced drawing using the techniques from the lesson. Looking forward to the next one! I really appreciate how you keep giving us more materials and instruction. You are a wonderful instructor! 
–Bill Bush
I have spent many hours watching Jessica Henry on YouTube and have really enjoyed it—have learned so much. Her techniques are awesome and I am learning so much in the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts. Thanks Jessica! 
–Del Lowe 
Always a learning experience watching Jessica Henry paint—very informative and inspiring. I have great respect for her dedication and sincerity in helping others to improve…thank you, thank you, thank you! 
–Chona Doering
I am one of Jessica Henry’s students—this is best training I have ever had in the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts! 

I started off as an oil painter and moved to digital art painting and now I'm so motivated to go back to what I've always loved to do—paint classically! It's been a long time so it's like I will be learning everything all over…I'm super excited!

It never dawned on me that NONE of my previous art teachers ever taught me what Jessica did last week—looking around the object not at it—GENIUS—Still working on making it a natural instinct.

Looking forward to my homework!
–Tara Richardson
I'm so happy to be apart of the Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts. I learned so much in just the first lesson. I'm so looking forward to our journey together. 
–Tom Wade 
I’m doing this for inspiration! The Renaissance Academy of Fine Arts means everything to me.

Thank you so very much for the gift you are giving to me, and so many others who love art. I have such a desire to create beautiful art and for the past 5 years I have been going at it alone, so I am beyond thrilled with this opportunity! 

I just watched the first lesson in full...I already feel like I have learned some valuable tools to see things more clearly. Wonderful and informative first lesson!  This is challenging but the instruction is clear and precise. All constructive criticism is appreciated. I learned a lot on this one! 

Thank you Jessica for the wonderful instruction.
