An Art Teacher who wants to really learn

Story and artwork from Roberto Helguera

For the longest time, I remember saying to myself: “If I had a million bucks, I would take the time off of work, move Florence and complete a two-year art academy course there in the old masters’ style. I used to read International Artist magazine in the US and envy those who could do this. But, as life would have it, I am a married man who has left his legal career to teach and run a small Catholic liberal arts school in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Since art has always been a part of my life, I teach it at my school as well. And I make sure to teach it in the classical realist mode. It has always been clear to me that college art schools or institutes are no match against the best realist art ateliers out there. I was happy to find that now, with the Drawing Academy, I don’t need to be “out there” to have great art teachers!

Reshaping history

Story and artwork from Ganesan Srinivasan

Art has been my passion since I was young, but could not pursue seriously as life pulled me in different directions. I recently retired and decided to rekindle my passion in art. I never had any formal training, and initially looked at several online resources and started sketching still life and portraits. While I could copy from photos reasonably well, I really wanted to master various techniques the right way.

Crazy about art
