About the Instructor

Alexander V Dzyubko was born in Russia to a family of artists. He attended the Art Academy in St. Petersberg (Russia), and graduated from Art College. In addition to his regular scholastic program, he spent more than ten years studying the techniques of Old Masters, among them Rembrandt, Vermeer, Bouguereau, Tchistiakov and Savisnski. . Alexander is an expert at techniques developed in schools ranging from the Italian Renaissance to Flemish and Dutch masters and art academies of the 19th and 20th century. As well, he is a devoted follower and ex-student of renowned Russian artist Yuri Skorikov.

Alexander has many aspiring students and followers. He teaches workshops and seminars for many individuals and art groups, semi-professionals and professional artists. His greatest motivation is his own successful artistic career and belief that the need exists to reveal many missing links in today’s art education. His knowledge and teaching method provide his students with a solid foundation for the development of their drawing and painting skills and also encourages them to establish their own artistic style.

” I believe that by gaining knowledge of previous generations of artists, you can build the foundation for creating the masterpieces of tomorrow. Possession of skills and techniques will give you freedom of expression and enhance your creativity and artistic imagination. By enriching your knowledge of skills and techniques Classical Realism will enable you to open the door to a bright, colourful world where subjects such as drawing, composition, colour and perspective will help you evolve into the essence of human perception and the celebration of life.
