WELCOME TO OUR NEWLY REMODELED WILDOMAR STUDIO

This foundational course develops skills through practical experience in the concepts of drawing and painting. Through demonstration, class exercises, and the pursuit of individual projects, students work with color-mixing, texture, perspective, scale, measurement, composition, and technique.

Students gain experience in troubleshooting while they work and become comfortable pursuing more advanced techniques.

Class meets once a week for 2 hours.

This intermediate course builds upon fundamental skills while encouraging students to begin thinking deeper about their work. An in-depth lesson is given on an element of art. Each student is guided in developing a composition while working in a medium of their liking.

Students build and stretch their own canvases then move through the project with guidance and individual tutelage.

ENROLLMENT COMING IN SUMMER OF 2022.This 18 month program aims to help students do the inner work needed to transition from “student” to future entrepreneur.  They identify their skillsets, discover what traits are needed to pursue their creative career, and formula a vision and a plan for their future.

Students see professional projects coming through the studio; from fine art commissions to the making of a children’s book. This sets the atmosphere for a strong creative culture and environment where anything is possible.

The Business of Art & Design course steps students through the process of taking more ownership of their work. Under my direct supervision and leadership, they work with clients, collaborate with one another on professional projects, build their skills, write their resume, develop their vision, reach their goals, and get through the roadblocks many young creatives pick up along the way.

Participants transition from a student doing what they are told or must do, to becoming one who plans and initiates their own learning and pursuits. Most students begin to accept their first gigs while in class and then become more confident in grasping new opportunities. Each student will work in their respective disciplines (fine art, design, film, authorship, music) throughout the process of this course. This course is ideal for the student who seeks an experiential education rather than the traditional college route.

Class meets once a week for 2 hours.
$189/4 sessions

Pre-requisite: Students must have a minimum of 2 years of our fine art training  -or- be dual enrolled in Honors Art and Business of Art & Design.

About Janna Geary

About Janna Geary

Janna Geary was born in 1978 near Detroit, Michigan. Her father and mother fled the city life and transplanted their family to the countryside. The home was nearly 100 years old, stood amongst 3 acres of wild flower gardens and old sheds. Out of the corn-cobb insulated walls grew a little girl fascinated with life, the possibilities, and the determination to discover her impact beyond the miles of fields. It was here that she began her creative work.

As she became a young woman, her hard work and perseverance proved valuable in her artistic pursuits as a painter. Janna Geary, an artist commissioned by the public and civic community since age 16, continued to plot her creative career at Kendall College of Art and Design after being awarded a full scholarship and winning a national competition in 1996. Here, Janna developed her fine art and illustration, then left Kendall to establish Artistica Fine Art Studio in the Detroit art scene. Having developed an undefeatable drive, dedication, and a wealth of creative visions, Janna left Detroit for Los Angeles in 2001.

She is Author and Illustrator of Ava Mae the Great Gourmet and the mother of the delightful Ava Lorren.
