The Galvez Atelier Traditional Oil Painting Workshops introduce the student to the materials, medium, techniques and processes in creating traditional oil paintings.
The Galvez Atelier Classical Program is designed by teaching artist, Alfred Galvez. The classes are arranged in sequence according to increasing difficulty. The range of available classes can accommodate students across the learning spectrum: enthusiasts who engage in art as part of leisure, practicing artists who need to enrich themselves and re-learn a solid foundation in creative practice, and aspiring artists who are preparing for a career in art or a Fine Arts talent test.
The Classical Program is meant to provide a strong foundation in classical techniques. Classes in the program are not only designed to teach skills but also to train students how to see and understand the interplay of the formal elements and principles seen in an artwork.

Galvez Atelier offers a curriculum with a sequence of classes carefully designed to help the student develop in drawing and painting. This method is akin to the practice in European ateliers of the past. However, this is a timeless approach that have worked throughout the history of humanity and across cultures. It is implemented at the atelier to provide the proper foundations for the learner to know how to create works that possess intrinsic excellence. The program then offers modular classes to continue one’s artistic education.
