This is Ian J. F. Wagner, a good friend of mine and he as been attending PAFA (Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts) for 10 years. Ian started by attending the FREE High School Program during the week days when he was a freshman, then attended the Undergrad program and is now about to graduate with an MFA degree. Ian doesn’t realize it, but his watercolors are amazing. He does other work as well like writing, drawing, and creating books. Though my favorite is his watercolor’s. There are these layers of colors and pigments that will just take your breath away if you look at them in person. Some of these paintings are 3 feet! When I asked him what his trick was he said “Lots of water and a very thick 8 inch watercolor brush that costs $50”.
So I have finished my Saturday art classes at NYU and here are the results. I know that they all seem the same but hey that’s my style and I am very prod of it.
I would deffinitly recommend NYU art classes to any young artist who really don’t have the money and materials for art classes, because at NYU these classes were free. The student are chosen by how you answer some basic art classes so that’s really good. Plus these classes were so much fun that I really didn’t mind waking up early (for a teenager that is) on a Saturday morning. The teachers, now what should I say about the teachers, they are the most fun art teachers I have ever had. They are constantly talking and are so easie to talk to plus they really want to push your art skills. I have learned so much just by going these classes that I want to share them with you
And even if you aren’t a fine artist, you don’t need money to buy classes because in NYC or probably in any place, there are free classes that you could take and learn new skill. All you have to do is find them.
