[01/04/20] The true artist’s life is difficult, complex, rewarding, vulnerable, rich all in one. Michelangelo wrote about it. We spend a lot of time alone, wrestling existentially, our ecstasy, subliminal. We are Voyagers of our own Humanity. - Avianne
[01/03/20] Drawing is to Painting as Scales are to Sheet Music. The artist, as the musician, must master and stay in practice with the basics or the more advanced, more serious work will stagnate, skip a beat and start devolving. - Avianne
Ever Wonder Why
Happy New Year!

One of my favorite artists has always been Botticelli. I love how he applied mannerist proportions to his figurative works. The elongated neck we see in this depiction of the goddess Venus, to me, is elegant and accentuates the femininity of the subject in a regal manner. These and other themes are....
[12/01/19] Food for thought: Famous Abstract Artists like Kandinsky and Picasso were at first Masters of Realism. Because you cannot truly master great skills nor produce sophisticated abstracts if you don’t master some degree of Realism first!
[11/18/19] How do I become a better artist? For me it is a daily journey. Practice. Study. Have a mentor. Be honest even when it is hard. Never settle. A teachable spirit and an eager heart go really far in a quest to excel at art. #Avianne
[11/09/19] Art Tip #1: Paper plates are designed to contain even saucy foods - they make wonderful, recyclable paint pallets for oils, water colors and acrylics. If you don’t want to deal with constant cleanup, paper plates will save you time.
Wonderful food for thought. Really learning great Classical #FineArt skills with sincerity works in similar ways... #ArtClassesMeridianIdaho
It's often said that it takes 10,000 hours of practice to become an expert, but what happens in a ballet dancer's brain when they learn choreography? Royal B...
[11/08/19] It is important to always do your best and build your skills solidly over time. Simple things that are executed well are always better than complex things that are badly executed. Have patience! The journey of Art is a marathon and not a sprint!

Safety Alert! Please be careful to use solvents, pure pigments and spray paints!!! If possible: don’t use those at all!!! PLEASE read my post and this article!!!!
RESEARCH products that you use to determine their level of toxicity and act accordingly...
The science that goes into manufacturing art supplies is pretty complex. For instance: cadmium is highly toxic, but if it is chemically altered, it is not toxic at all - the problem is that we don’t always know exactly what we are using, because companies are not always required to label the details!
I personally work with MANY types of art supplies and some of them are borderline. I wear protective gear (a dust mask is NOT protective gear, because chemicals can get through it). I wear a mask that is designed for automotive painters - keeps all chemicals out. I wear long pants and long sleeves with gloves (some chemicals can get through your skin and enter your bloodstream).
Powdered pigments / dust from clay can actually also kill you or make you very sick... over time, if you don’t wear breathing gear when mixing these, sanding these etc, they will likely build up in your system and trigger cancer or auto immune diseases. Wear eye protection too, because the dust can enter via your eyeballs!!! Seriously!
Like many artists, I like the old-school oils instead of water based oils, because I find the water based oils very “plastic” and “waxy”. But I am careful to touch wet oil paint and I use low-key solvents that are less toxic and California health labeled - if I work on an intense peace and the chemicals will linger in the room, I wear my protective gear.
California is VERY strict about art supplies and label hazardous supplies very clearly. But in many places this is not the case: DO NOT order art supplies online if you don’t know where they come from or have access to proper labels and health information! You can be ordering some cancer for yourself...
I cannot, personally, work with any epoxy based products at all: I am highly allergic to epoxy products: I get severe headaches, breathing issues and break out in hives from epoxy. If you have an allergic reaction: don’t do it at all!
Certain preservation sprays / most spray paints / sealers are also REALLY bad. Wear the gear when you work with it. And keep it away from kids and pets!!!
Spread this wisdom! Stay healthy! Think of your kids, pets and students too! Also: the environment!
This article stresses the importance of artists health, being aware of toxic art materials, cites the dangers, and offers steps to protect yourself.
New International on-line Classes / Coaching!!! Learn at your own pace!!!
We are making a brand new, exciting class option available for new or existing students globally! Yes, Wherever you are, you can now get access to our training / coaching sessions!
You can now have access to direct, private or small group (if you have family members or friends wanting to do it together) art classes / creative career coaching sessions with Avianne herself on-line. She offers:
- Customized Fine Art instruction
- Classical Studio Training
- Creative Entrepreneurship Coaching
- Therapeutic Art Instruction
Pricing depends on how you want your classes structured.
Email Avianne directly: [email protected] for more information!

In 2019, my mission will be to become even more excellent in my art making and industry (and client) relationships.
I think the biggest mistake artists make is settling for very little in terms of achieving excellence in our art making, industry (and client) relationships and art sales. Mediocrity is the enemy of Greatness. We tend to settle for mediocrity because excellence is REALLY hard. Excellence means that we don’t settle for pats on the back from the visually illiterate, thinking we are incredible artists. Excellence means we will strive hard and bleed for becoming more. We will constantly take classes and learn from others who are more excellent than us. I have learned to absolutely become a child in this pursuit: totally open for change and learning new skills.
Excellence means that we constantly develop our skills and challenge ourselves to become ever more sophisticated and skilled at what we create. Excellence also means that we strive to become truly proficient in commerce and building a legacy beyond just what is local and comfortable. #Excellence #CreativeForce #Avianne

As always Mr. Ozell and the teens and adults were ROCKING our Classical Studio Training Class this past Tuesday. So proud of them!
Miss Kimber and I were working with our Livermore kids yesterday to teach them some acrylic painting skills. They did a fantastic job and as always we had a ball learning together!
This morning I had to explain to a parent why we do not charge $10 an hour for our classes. It got me thinking: I should start educating people about what true art classes are about. Basically, it is like buying a car: you can decide to buy a Ferrari or a clunker. But you will not pay the same price for them. They also do not serve the same purpose. And you will never see a Ferrari being sold in a junkyard.
In my profession, unfortunately, I come across a lot of con-artists (pun intended) who profess to teach “art classes”. With Fine Art classes, as with most things, you really, usually, do get what you pay for. Don’t be taken for a ride. Unfortunately many “art classes” are just social clubs or glorified baby sitting services. Here are 3 quick (out of many ways) to separate the real from the fake:
1. A truly great art instructor has the heart (and skills) of a teacher. They want to see you reach your full potential and so they will explain techniques in detail, cater to the individual, challenge you, not patronize or leave you to your own devices (which will get you absolutely nowhere). They will inspire, motivate, create with and deeply engage their students. They will not give you just “easy” things to do or “doodle / craft” projects. They will teach you real drawing, design, thinking, conceptual, technical skills (not tracing) and real painting skills (not paint by numbers).
2. A truly great art instructor is someone who cares about their own professional artistic development and achievements as well. They will pursue excellence in their own work (which you should ask to see), be mentored by other artists, be teachable themselves, have an excellent, professional work ethic and will have a track record of association with others who are excellent as well. They will have great skills, constantly increasing in excellence and be artistic explorers and achievers in their own right.
3. They will not charge you peanuts and will provide and engage you with professional conduct, good supplies, notes, individual attention, demonstrations, proven methods etc. An artist who respects themselves, knows their worth, knows what they are doing and can offer you true artistic development will not charge you $10 per hour (social club / baby sitting). They will charge you fairly because they also care about having students who are serious about their artistic development.
We are very fortunate at our Academy to have instructors and students who are committed, passionate and serious about their art. I raise my hat to all of us! ###
It is 11pm and I just got 鑫鼎彩票代理注册 from our incredible first day learning some incredible Classical Drawing Skills from Mr. Ozell in our new Classical Studio Training Classes.

We honor you. We care.
