Please convey to the CAC staff that the Alexey Steele Workshop, held this past week, was a smashing success. Everyone knows what a powerful artistic force Alexey already is, but few, until this time, could have realized what a sensational and dynamic art instructor he makes as well. He is driven by a strong belief in the classical methods of producing traditional realism in art. With classic music booming from the rafters of his cavernous studio, Alexey exhorts us to paint with the beat, to integrate the rhythmic and tonal values of the music into our painting. He is particularly adept at engaging each participating artist at their current level of skills, and encouraging them to surpass themselves by pushing beyond their respective conform zones. Our collective experience, I beleive, exceeded anything we could have anticipated.
The event was extensively recorded in digital still and video images. I hope you will consider posting some of the images on the Club website. And by all means, ENCOURAGE Alexey to conduct more workshops in the future.
Speaking for myself, the 800 or so Associate Art Members of the Club that didn't attend the workshop missed out on a rare and unique artistic experience and as Alexey says "a nutty good time."
