Repertoire Painting

What happens in a "Gallery Quality Painting" art lesson at Inglis Academy?

The masterclass lesson format at Inglis Academy involves painting masterpieces by the likes of Monet, Cezanne and Van Gogh.

I developed "repertoire painting" based on the way we learn music. When you learn classical music you get your instruction from repertoire by the likes of Bach, Vivaldi and Mozart.

Good repertoire exemplifies the language.

This is the way you probably learned English in school, by studying literature.

So by taking a repertoire based approach to painting you are working towards:

  1. A definite goal
  2. A goal (the masterwork) which is widely recognised as being worthwhile
  3. Within a limited time frame (typically 4 hours)

Read on to see how we pull all this together in one session!
