" My work for this week. After 4 struggling nights, I finally finished it. DIfferent than the original since I have no idea how to deal with one type of flower in the original version. Also, the leaves are tricky. "
Renoir: Roses & Jasmine in a Delft Vase, 1890

" This is my mate Peter Inglis- something of a genius. His Monets seem to me to be as good as Monet's. More amazingly, he can teach you to paint a repectable Monet or Renoir or Van Gogh in just a few hours, even if you have never painted before.

Hard to believe, but I've seen his students' work.

He'll throw in a quick history of western civilisation as well. A truly enriching cultural experience.

Check it out. "

This video gives you a close up look at some of Peter Inglis' Monet interpretations which we study in class, along with detailed course material, large video displays, intensive coaching and live painting demos.

Monet Mosaic

Monet mosaic created by Helen, after attending several classes at Inglis Academy.

After attending several classes at Inglis Academy, and learning Peter’s method, I was inspired to translate the brushwork into a glass on glass mosaic of Monet’s Japanese bridge.

The techniques we learned of analysing an impressionist painting - looking at tone, perspective, composition and palette- enabled me to reproduce the work in another medium. I’ve found this method to be very helpful, and transferable to other art forms.

Helen transferred her new art literacy skills from the medium of acrylic painting to mosaic, and produced this amazing Monet! This is exactly the sort of outcome that Inglis Academy is oriented towards. Well done!

Naomi's home, full of Art

Naomi is adding more of her personality to her home by displaying her artworks!

Naomi is transforming her home into her own art gallery!

Each lesson she adds her own interpretation of a masterwork to her collection.

As well as making your home more "you", this is a really valuable strategy for learning. You do need to look at your own paintings... a lot! Painting gets the things you like about art out of your head and onto a canvas. It clarifies your thinking about art.

Naomi is transforming her home into her own art gallery!

... and by my calculations she has saved about $42 million so far, compared to purchasing the original works, which anyway are not always on the market...
