Juliette Aristides was one again delighted to teach at the Bay Area Classical Artist Atelier this August. During an intensive 2-week workshop, students delved into painting related issues while exploring an artist's most fascinating subject matter: the human figure.
I am at the stage now where the time I spent in San Francisco is something I wonder - was I there or did I dream it? I am sure the class learned a ton from you this week. I wanted to send you a quote which describes the best kind of teacher: "the mediocre teacher tells, the good teacher explains, the superior teacher demonstrates, the great teacher inspires." Thank you for being a great teacher and artist. - Ann H
