In my student years, I had a feeling that the teaching methods were not exactly correct and coherent. As a teacher I have always aimed at creating an integral system, a range of methods that would allow teaching drawing and painting any person regardless of age, skills and even talent. My first finished book, The Art School, is a coherent system that bridges the gap that exists in teaching the beginners. It explains both basic theory and techniques that facilitate the drawing process.
My book Composition in Painting: Basics and Examples (English Edition) is available on Amazon now.
It’s not just another book about composition in painting. In fact, this theory of composition is a real game changer – a very clear and logical system easy applicable in practice. It’s that never used to be theory of composition before. The intended readers of this book are the art students. But it will be interesting for scholars and specialists as well, because this book gives a new viewpoint to the topic of composition in visual arts. The general readers without specialized knowledge in the field may be interested too, the theory is clearly and logically explained without misusing special terms.
I also wrote a course on Child Development Drawing for kids 5-10 years old. I believe that perception doesn’t shape before a child is 10 years old. That’s why seriously it is only possible to teach drawing and painting those who are over 11. Child Development Drawing mainly aims at exercising attention, diligence, and acumen. At the same time, children get familiar with certain drawing and painting techniques. But the accuracy of the result, the matching of a child’s drawing to the example is never assessed. The most important thing is to help a child discover something new in familiar, get a wider view and learn the potential of colors and techniques.
