Painting lessons in New York City

Picture this: You are standing in an art studio with a paintbrush in hand and a color palette in the other and take a moment to step back and review your painting from afar. 

Your favorite Beatles song is playing in the background while you’re cup of tea cools off nearby and you’re applying the final touches to your piece. It’s a still life of a bouquet of spring flowers in a vase basking in the morning sunlight.

 The texture, colors, and values of each brushstroke work harmoniously together. It is your most prized work yet and all it needs is a few touches of white to highlight the glasslike surface of the vase and…Et Voila! It’s done!

Elements and Principles of Art and Design done differently

What makes a painting successful, more importantly, what will make yours a success, includes a great amount of consideration of elements and principles of art and design. 

Elements of art and design like point, line, space, shape, form, color, value, and texture help organize the characteristics of successful paintings. Principles of Art and Design like balance, pattern, rhythm, emphasis, contrast, and unity identify aspects that are successful in a painting’s composition.

Benefits of Painting

Painting is an excellent source of reflection and meditation in the everyday hustle and bustle of life. Much like yoga and hobbies, painting as a way to bring relaxation is an excellent method to ground your inner thoughts and reconnect with the self. Unplug with a paintbrush and discover a new way of creative expression.

Psychologists and health practitioners agree that painting and engaging with art, in general, has far more reaching health benefits. Studies have shown, including art in our schedules can develop positive effects on health and well-being across the lifespan, both mentally and physically.

Activities like painting and other art practices can significantly reduce anxiety levels and blood pressure while simultaneously improving motor skills, memory, attention, and sleep. Who knew painting as self-care could be so good?

Connect with an experienced Superprof artist and get a head start on those essential health benefits. 

Hall of Fame Painters

In preparation for your Superprof painting lessons, why not look at a master’s work as a source of inspiration? Just to help kick start creativity and possibilities! 

Familiarize yourself with masterpieces produced by household names like Leonardo Da Vinci, Vincent Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Monet, Michelangelo, and Picasso. Better yet get to know New York native and based artists like Jean-Michael Basquiat, Andy Warhol, Jackson Pollock, Georgia O’Keefe, Mark Rothko, Keith Haring, and so many more!

Observing critically acclaimed works of art is a great way to study painting techniques, artist tricks, and gain a fresh perspective. It can even help boost themes and concepts you wish to represent. Most importantly, taking the time to appreciate each artist’s unique style is helpful when reflecting on how you wish to portray your work. 

Love bright, saturated colors? Or gravitate towards soft tones and shadows? Perhaps you want to explore landscapes, still life’s, or portraits? Get inspired before you paint and find out what you like best!

You can even create painting studies of original works to help facilitate concepts found in color theory such as shades, tones, and hues. Mixing colors and matching them is an excellent way to practice
