A 2 Day Exploration into the Drama of Still Life
This is a rare opportunity to study with a master painter

Gain insight from Jacqueline Kamin's highly acclaimed career as painter and instructor. Out of the struggle of learning to see comes mystery, magic and the universal language of Art. Through this workshop you will be able to deepen your relationship to the world through uncovering the rich beauty of symmetry, structure, color, and edges in your work. This workshop presents new ways to approach and understand painting as art, and about portraying the essence of the subject. Kamin believes if you just copy your subject matter you’re missing ninety per cent of the art. Her paintings are simple in concept. They have one essential visual idea about color, shapes, values, edges, alone or in combination. These are things that paint can do. The idea or visual concept creates a relationship between objects.

Jacqueline Kamin is an acclaimed master artist who has been developing and sharing her craft for several decades. Born in 1950 in Washington, D.C., Jacqueline Kamin received her formal art education from the Corcoran Museum School in her native town, and later attended the Art Students League and the Sculpture Studio , both in New York City.

"Filters" An Exhibition of Contemporary Artists

Wow! What an exceptional exhibit by the emerging artists from Kline Academy. The gallery was packed- you almost could not see the art for both opening and closing receptions. 3 pieces sold from this newest group show "Filters." We would like to thank all who came over to see our students' art works at the Schomburg Gallery, Bergamot Station, Santa Monica in the last 2 weeks.

Benny Zahavi sold "At the Station" in upper right
Marianne Roberts sold two of her paintings

"Filters" was our 2nd abstract / contemporary exhibition at the Schomburg Gallery. The show was a  collection of work from artists who attend two of our classes - "A different abstract painting class" with Scott Yeskel and "Contemporary painting workshop" with Cheryl Kline. The difference with Kline Academy is that we help to promote the artists who attend. We are a community and we are all going up the ladder together. Artists find their unique visual language in our workshops and no one paints alike. It's a great experience and exhibiting at all stages of one's art career is a wonderful way to honor ones creative path.

The opening reception
Kline Academy of Fine Art founded in 2007 with just 10 students, has grown today into a community of over 100 students in classes taught by a team of professional artists with offerings 6 days a week. Kline Academy is an atelier experience…founded on classical foundations in art, a linage that has been passed down from master to student since the renaissance, giving anyone who seeks a better art education an opportunity to learn historic painting techniques brush stroke by brush stroke. We are a place where people of any age and background can learn fundamentals of art making from classical realism to contemporary painting.

We are looking forward to more exhibition opportunities.
