New owner and Executive Director Molly Johnson along with Artistic Director Craig Blietz are proud to present New Works by the Students of the Kewaunee Academy of Fine Arts.
Under the direction of renowned artist Craig Blietz, the Kewaunee Academy features an intensive curriculum devoted to drawing, painting, and sculpting. In preparation for careers as practicing artists, the students are taught the classical techniques and methods introduced before the Renaissance and perfected by the Masters. The Academy is located in Algoma www.kewauneeacademy.com.
Throughout their course of study, students are assessed on their individual progress, and advancement is based on the recommendation of the Artistic Director. The curriculum is designed primarily to heighten a student’s visual skills and acuity. In addition, through the efforts made by the students to achieve successful completion in each exercise, the student becomes accomplished in the use of charcoal, and oil paint, and new this year, watercolor and sculpture. These objectives have been used throughout history, past and present, with proven results.
