CONCETTA'S ATELIER PHILOSOPHY
In the era of French Impressionism, an artist's studio was called an Atelier. It's purpose was to be a school providing academic training in the oil painting medium and in the classic style, (using age-old methods traditionally passed from master to student). Concetta K. Antico created such a school in 1995. For almost two decades, she has focused her methods for fine oil painting instruction on this classical Atelier philosophy in her role as fine artist and arts educator.
At her Salon Of Art studio the focus is on learning via the masters techniques, recreating works by reinforcing their skills. Ms. Antico promotes important classical principles such as line, color-mixing, shape, form, value, pattern, visual accuracy, composition and brushwork through step-by-step demonstration, unique methodologies, resources and lectures. Her instructional techniques draw from centuries of knowledge as well as her own career achievements and unique life experiences. Additionally, Ms. Antico instills a love in her students for art history, fine art appreciation, and knowledge of important oil painting process.
A leader in the San Diego Art Community for over 20 years, Ms. Antico has passed her knowledge to thousands of students of every age and level. She continues to inspire her students with her excellent ability to teach as well as to paint. Her enthusiasm, dedication and passion for art are evident. All students are valued and encouraged equally as a result of her belief that fine art creation is a skill to be learnt requiring no special "talent". Her belief is that today, more than ever, there is a need for balance through cultural pursuits as we battle against a world filled with so much technology. Concetta maintains that greater personal self-expression, in the form of creativity and artistic endeavors, will provide a backlash to technology and a solution, accessible to all.
To this end, The Salon of Art continues to provide a nurturing environment for a limited number of serious students so as to provide highly individualized attention and maximum development for each. Along with offering Atelier-style instruction, The Salon of Art's professional studio is equipped with all fine art amenities. Concetta has created a quality program. Learning to oil paint in the classical tradition will take a student several years to accomplish but it is an endeavor well worth the time invested. There is no short cut to producing quality art. Like other professions, it is a life-long pursuit involving continuous academic training, patience, practice and dedication. "It is the love of the process, not the product, that makes the artist." she states.
Learning to oil paint will be a great springboard to a new and powerful personal self awareness. It is joyful and relaxing. Oil painting has proven to relieve stress, lower blood pressure, improve self esteem, eliminate depression and create a happier and more fulfilled life. Other benefits include enhanced concentration, focus, and a elation at being able to see the world in a different way, an artist's way... These are just a few of the gifts realized by learning to oil paint. No matter age or ability, imaginations will be stretched, while minds and spirits are nurtured.
