This class will explore the human condition through individual development of ideas with discussions on formation of concept, approaches and materials. The class is designed for both advanced and beginning students regardless of disciplines chosen: landscape, figure, still life, abstract, etc. Students should bring whatever medium is preferred, an easel, if possible, and whatever previous work they would like to discuss and present.

This class is an all day session, once a week for 8 weeks. During the class, individual instruction is given with an emphasis on the student learning new ways of seeing and understanding their work. In addition Mr. Shundi provides an Art History "lesson" where he shows and discusses different artist's work so as to continue exposing the students to numerous artists both well known and relatively unknown. 


The Reflectionist, a cooperative of artists formed by the students of Alexander Shundi, exhibits twice a year. Those in the class are encouraged to exhibit what they are been working on.


A new session will start on August 31st .
