Please welcome our new instructor Shaun Berke

Shaun Berke

Shaun Berke (b.1983) is an American painter of the Venetian School –– a painterly technique passed down from master to apprentice since the fifteenth century. With degrees from Moorpark College and Art Center College of Design, he went on to study in Venice, Italy then to Stavern, Norway with Odd Nerdrum.

Berke is internationally collected and recognized with awards from The Art Renewal Center, World Wide Kitsch, Westlake Village Art Guild, Thousand Oaks Art Association, The Gerd Koch Grant, The Alpine Fellowship. Berke is an instructor at his alma mater, a materials specialist, and a lecturer of philosophy.

“My paintings are slow; anachronistic and figurative oil paintings in themes from nature Images springing from Classical Antiquity, Pagan Mythology, and Pre-Socratic Philosophy are buried layer upon layer. They are the portraits of an anchorite without time––the studies of becoming, an everliving fire.”

Kline Academy's Youngest Student Mary Kato

Mary and her painting

Mary had her first official paid art gig! 
She did line drawings for a cranial/sacral therapy website. 



Mary came to Kline Academy in 2016.  She was only 9 years old and the paper pad and drawing board she brought were as big as she was... This young prodigy is now 11, taking two classes with us besides the art program her school offers and showing not only a remarkable growth but also passion for making art. 
We are very proud of her! Great Job Mary!!

Welcome to the latest staggeringly beautiful oil on canvas from Cheryl Kline, painted especially for our "Women in Art: GREAT Artists who just Happen to be Women"exhibition launching today at Chloe Gallery!

When asked what she feels about being a "Woman in Art" this month in honor of Women's History Month, Cheryl Kline replies to us in poetic form:

"I celebrate the beauty of Mother Nature

Capturing a moment in time where the earth is glowing,

The clouds dancing gracefully across the sky,

And the warmth of the sun spreading its colorful rays

Of reds and yellows onto all in it’s path.

I celebrate Mother Nature in my work and give

Her a voice for all to hear and hope that they too will

Tred on her earth carefully and with respect and in awe 

Of  the beauty she brings to us each and every day.”

Please let us know if you would like to collect this or some other gorgeous Cheryl Kline in the gallery now.  Limited Edition prints are also available of an extensive line of Cheryl Kline images! Inquire now for limited edition details of your favorite works.

The Artist's Road Trip To Success

Launch your art career in 2018!

In this workshop, Heidi Gray, a writer and former gallery owner, will reveal all the secrets to be a successful artist!

Message from Heidi

"On any given day, I would receive 10 submissions from artists wanting to exhibit their work. One artist even went so far as to buy a painting hanging on the wall, so he could put his work there.  Another artist came to the gallery wrapped in optic fibers.  

Did either idea work?  If no, why and what does it really take to get noticed?  

If yes, what other creative strategies could you learn directly from a gallery owner?" 

Speaker's Bio

Heidi Gray is a previous gallery owner, speaker, and marketing consultant with over 20 years of professional experience.

As a graduate of Columbia University, Gray has always thrived in helping and guiding emerging and mid-career artists in every aspect of career development.
