Academy Mask Policy – Fall 2021

 

Any student under the age of 18 will be required to wear a mask for the duration of their camp/class. For any participant age 18+, masks are highly recommended and encouraged regardless of vaccination status.

 


 

Introduction to painting is about fearlessly painting on canvas! This tutorial style course focuses on exploring what it takes to create a finished painting. Students will learn how to utilize preliminary sketching, introductory painting techniques, and make individualistic choices to create an inspired work of art. All supplies are included.

 

Instructor: Joshua Carter

Joshua Carter is native to the blue hills of Virginia. He was raised just 30 minutes southeast of Charlottesville in a small town called Palmyra Virginia. As a child, Joshua busied himself with filling hundreds of sheets of old computer paper with all sorts of sketches and drawings. As he grew older he found a love for painting landscapes and abstractions. 

In recent years Joshua has presented several exhibits in Lynchburg, Virginia: Metamorphosis: A Palpable Abstraction 2019 (Riverviews Art Space). Black Art Matters (Academy Center of the Arts), and The Color of Life: a Family Tree (Academy Center of the Arts).

Joshua believes that art is a means of self discovery, exploration of the outside world, and global communication. His style is often experimental and spiritual, using themes and symbols to connect to his innermost thoughts.
