“Students of Bucks County Classical Arts Center Annual Show June 11th- July 31st

Opening reception will be Sunday June 12th from 3-5pm.

Bucks County Classical Arts Center is exhibiting artwork of current students at Gold Light Gallery from June 11th to July 31st.

The show focuses on the art of students based on the atelier method of training led by John Murdoch. The show includes work completed in pencil, charcoal, and oil paint on canvas or panel by teenagers through adults. The work is primarily traditional work completed in class with some exceptions.

The instruction and the work in the show is unique in that it is based purely on Academic drawing and painting methods passed down through the "atelier" method of instruction. Students learn how to draw and paint accurately and command materials through step-by-step instruction and commitment to mastery. Classes are open to all from novice beginners to professional artists and the age range for students is age 12 through adult. Students in middle school to high school find the classes invaluable as an addition to school classes to prepare for college level classes. The art displayed was produced in class or using the class methods. Student experiences vary from having decades of experience to some with little or no art experience.
