One on One Tutoring
After many hours of classes, studying in the best academies with teachers of real luxury (sometimes the teachers were not so wonderful, and sometimes we had students on probation who did what they could), and after hours of training, we realized that what makes the difference is not the teacher who tells you the technique and leaves you with the brown , but the teacher who asks you what you need, listens to you and offers you a solution adapted to your problem and to your particular needs. That’s what one-to-one tutoring is for, to see your specific case, your problems and accompany you along the way.
How to improve your Composition
Download the guide to improve the composition for FREE
Composition is perhaps the most ignored aspect of artistic creation. It is also one of the most important aspects. If your composition is weak, then your work is also weak. Even if the other elements are well worked values, proportions, and borders, if your composition is poorly planned and executed, then your work could be considered a failure.
Fortunately, composition is one of those things we can do well with a little planning and knowledge. It doesn’t require “talent” and it’s definitely not about “guesswork.” There are some rules that we can consider when planning our jobs so that we can succeed at all times.

Isn’t that the million-dollar question? I don’t know about you, but I wondered every day if my drawings were good enough; works of art I knew they weren’t, but were they good? I wondered if I was worth drawing, if I could really dedicate myself to the profession I loved. I wondered if there was any indication, a sign confirming without a doubt that I was born for this, that I had talent. The guide I leave you below is not a magic divination ball of the future, but it will let you see what points you can start to improve on to get where you want to go.
My name is Sandra Glez and I’m here to help you! SHALL WE START?
Anatomy to Explore
One of the most effective practice modes to improve your drawing is to copy masterpieces. That is, copy a reproduction of a work by a great master. And speaking of anatomy, it’s hard to imagine a better way to start than by copying drawings from the Repin Academy in St. Petersburg. These drawings are authentic, expert eye candy. Enjoy them and savor them patiently and with care because there is much to learn from these little wonders.

FULLY CUSTOMIZED CLASSES
The classes at the Atelier are individualized and are aimed at both beginners and people who already have previous experience.

From the moment you land in our drawing or painting classes, your teacher in the workshop will evaluate your skills and your preferences or needs, and work with you to achieve your goals. In just two sessions you’ll be able to do things you’d never have imagined. Our drawing and painting classes are totally personalized and made just for you.
STARTING AT THE BASE
Students who start with drawing and painting classes from a basic level start by working the drawing as the main tool. It is essential to then develop a good work ethic with any technique.
There are very basic exercises, which will help you to learn how to perfectly emulate what you want to draw. Your teacher will teach you how to look and see the basic lines, as well as the angles, values, planes, edges, and other elements that make up the drawing.
Measurements, proportions, stroke control… these are not only important for painting; drawing is an essential tool to face virtually any artistic discipline in which there is an idea to represent. Therefore, the drawing will accompany us throughout the course and our artistic career. Depending on the level of the student, we will greatly emphasize drawing in the beginning, until we ensure the essential ease to face any type of project.

What are the classes?
The main idea in the classes of Atelier Glez is to introduce students gradually to the management of various materials and techniques of drawing and painting, to help enhance the basic elements of plastic expression and creativity.
Classes vary from person to person, as we understand that not everyone has the same creative interests, preferences or skills. We also celebrate the variety of learning styles, knowledge bases, the different generations, and the range of emotions that make every class a very specific laboratory. This is why we design each class to suit each person, making each class measured just for you.
