Brief Course Description
Fantasy paintings (also referred to as Fantastic Art) are characterized by their realistic depiction of non-real subject matter including fictional characters, creatures, and lands, often derived from literature (both classic and contemporary) as well as ancient folklore and mythology. The term Fantasy Art is closely related, and is applied primarily to recent art (typically 20th century onwards) inspired by, or illustrating, fantasy literature.
Students will learn to use the various supplies to create their own techniques. They will learn how to create shape, volume, pleasing compositions and more. Students will learn to create portraits and various aspects of nature with precision and accuracy. They will be creating scenes of fantasy using traditional and modern techniques.
Brief Program Description
The objective of this program is to develop the ability to paint portraits and discover a variety of different characters. Students will study colors and different parts of the face and learn techniques ranging from classical to realism. Also students will compare portraits which have been painted in different eras including the classic and modern era. With this knowledge students can pick up on unique techniques and combine their favorite ones to create their own.

When the early cave-dwelling humans began a social life, they became organically divided into two different groups.
Those belonging to the first group were of a kind always looking up to the skies, searching for something bigger and stronger than themselves. They looked for something phenomenal that would make their wishes come true and solve their problems, especially to do with the health of their crops, which was dependent on rain – and, rain came from the skies. Therefore, they always looked at the heavens, the forest and the sea. They looked for a virtual and abstract power. Because of their other-worldly mind-set, they explore the world and environment around better, and created signs and symbols through their imagination as evident by the discovered cave painting. They thought that if they painted the animals on the walls, they would be able to capture the soul of the animals, and the hunters would be able to hunt them much more easily.
The second group of our early ancestors was of the type who never looked beyond their daily needs. They never thought of another life. They only searched for the things that they needed in the immediate environment around, not in the skies above. These people were hunter-gatherers who were empirical and practical.
Hence, we are faced with two kinds’ mind-sets – one looking to another world creating for themselves a god/gods or a symbol/icon, and the other much more pragmatic and practical and thinking that everything they need, is available and tangible.
