This class will introduce students to the fundamentals of painting as well as color and composition.  Students will be encouraged to pursue their own style and technique while learning and understanding color theory, as well as composition and design. 

Students will also learn about the tools of the trade such as the different types of paints and brushes and the difference between synthetic, blends and natural brushes.

This class is suitable for beginner to advanced students as the lessons and projects will be geared toward individual skill and interest levels.  Because each student is unique, projects may be altered and one-on-one instruction will be given to suit each student’s skills, talents, knowledge, and interest level.

The experienced or advanced student will be encouraged to continue developing their skills as well as learning new techniques to help develop the student’s skills.

Students may bring in a reference image of their own or choose to follow the instructor’s demonstration. All students are encouraged to bring their own canvas(es) sized 11×14 or larger although the Academy does provide canvas boards for each student.

Arnulfo, aka “Arnold” or “Nuffy”, is a native of Santa Paula, California, which is located about an hour north of Los Angeles.  He has had multiple successes in both the athletic and art fields. He competed in the 1984 Olympics in Sprint Canoe Kayak and later went on to become a National coach at the Olympic Training Centers in Lake Placid, New York and San Diego, California.  After working as a firefighter for 7 years, he decided to return to school and graduated from the University of Southern California’s Roski School of Art and Designs with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts.  Arnold went on to work on set designs and became the airbrush supervisor for the motion picture “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” and billboard campaigns such as “Godzilla”, “The Mask of Zorro”, “The Gap”, “The Chevrolet Corporation”, and “Wells Fargo”. Arnold was also an art teacher in California, and he designed a curriculum that combines Studios Arts and Art History to prepare students for college level education. 

 Following in his father’s footsteps, Arnulfo has been involved in the arts for over 50 years. Since moving from Southern California to Lynchburg in 2014, he and his wife Alisa have painted over 80 sets for local theatre productions. He also teaches numerous drawing and painting classes in Lynchburg and Bedford. He has been honored to be voted Lynchburg’s “Best Local Artist” (Gold in 2018, Silver in 2019) in Lynchburg Living magazine. He has also been featured in the 2018 Mar/Apr edition of Lynchburg Living as well as the June 28, 2018 edition of The News & Advance, The Burg.
