Expand your creativity. There are no limits, only infinite possibilities.
Amazing. Challenging. Probably one of the best courses I have attended.
8paint Infinite Arts is an internationally recognized fine arts community founded by figurative painter Gabriel Mark Lipper. Gabriel has taught hundreds of students to break down the barriers between abstract and representational art in his highly acclaimed course: Learning to See
WHAT IS LEARNING TO SEE?
The course is a combination of video tutorials and practical assignments, delivered in jam-packed weekly modules. With guided support and live weekly feedback from Gabriel and his team, the group’s synergy inspires creative problem solving and pushes everyone’s art to the next level.
In addition to the pre-recorded content, each week there are interactive live Zoom calls, where students are encouraged to submit their work for review. Gabriel and his team answer questions and address principles in real-time during the Q&A’s. All of this content will be available to you for a full year so you can review, revisit and relearn. The course’s structure allows you to absorb the lessons quickly but unpack the content and apply the learning at your own pace.
Learning to See teaches you how to observe your world and transform what you see into a cohesive body of gallery-worthy work.
Our primary objective is to teach you how to conceptualize, design, and produce a cohesive body of original artwork that you can be proud of.
You will be introduced to the core principles and techniques that Gabriel has used throughout his 25 years as a professional artist. Each module unpacks a different stage in this master artist’s process, moving seamlessly between abstraction and representation within his demonstrations.
As you move through the first 8 weeks of the program you will acquire an entire toolkit of new skills that you can apply to your painting practice. Throughout this process you will clarify your voice, strengthen your talents and begin to develop a signature style that is unique to you.
A deep dive into this course will enable you to realize your ideas with confidence. Painting will light you up, as it becomes alive and rich with self-expression. Stepping into your artistic power allows you to become the curator of your own vision, transformation, and liberation.
Learning to See will develop your creative and critical thinking skills.
Have you found YOUR style?
This was one of the best investments I ever made. The Learning to See class gave me so many tools to create and to see things differently and still more precisely at the same time. It helped me shed some preconceived notions of what creating art can or “should” involve. It opened a world of possibilities for imagining compositions, creating and evaluating design, using color, value and hierarchy in the service of what I want to express.
Why is it as artists we feel we must choose between abstraction and representationalism?
What if both styles could be united, working in tandem with one another? These opposing camps tend to pull us in one direction or the other. On the one hand representationalism can feel tight, over-rendered and precious, while on the other, abstraction can feel slapdash or clumsy, and often hit and miss. Without a complete understanding of what is possible we don’t have the freedom to create what we want to create.
Learning to See will arm you with a quiver of artistic techniques and tools that enable you to push your paintings in any direction that you desire. If you want your art to know no bounds, then you are in the right place.
How will my ART improve?
If a friend was interested in taking the Learning to See course, I would assure them that no matter what kind of work they choose to do, the course would help them to improve their process and to “learn to see” in an entirely different way.
There is no other course like this.
The 8paint Infinite Arts Learning to See program delivers new methods and ideas based on Gabriel’s extensive career. Having suffered through the rigors of classical training he has come to combine this traditional academic approach with his own contemporary style and love of paint.
The program is divided into two 8-week segments. The first is an intense phase of learning, practice and feedback. The second 8-weeks is a gentler paced opportunity to implement and absorb what you’ve learned with guided support. Gabriel and the team continue to meet you with their instruction and support via Zoom Q&A’s every other week.
Through the course we will show you how these seemingly opposing styles can work beautifully together. Merging the principles of abstraction with representationalism can create invigorating and magical results. You will create artwork that really sings, by striking notes of harmony and echoing tones of discord to create paintings that can radiate the power of your creativity.
I am intensely grateful for the generosity of your teaching. I now have an enormous sense of possibility and an awareness that I have only to show up and connect over and over. Thank you.
