Early registration is now open for the upcoming Visionary Techniques course with Aloria Weaver & David Heskin.

(4 full weekend days & 5 weekday mornings)



This 'Visionary Techniques' course consists of two distinct, interrelated components:

A Two Weekend Painting Intensive - March 26/27 & April 2/3:

All 4 days will be full class days with lessons, demos, studies and oil painting projects undertaken. A lunch break will be given between our morning and afternoon sessions. and there will be evening open studio sessions on both Saturday nights.

These 4 full days will follow the stages to complete an oil painting from start to finish, but a finished painting is not ultimately as important as gaining a working knowledge of a layered painting methods that are synthesized from traditional and innovative practices. The 5 days between weekend intensives will allow for drying time, during the next 5 weekday mornings of Sacred Geometry courses.

5 Sacred Geometry weekdays - Monday March 28th - Friday April 1st.
*These sessions consist only of morning classes*

Presentations, demos, lessons & homework (if you choose to accept it), will be provided each day, along with additional research, references and resources for students to follow after the session, and hopefully much further than just the duration of the course.

Day 1: Harmonic Proportion
Day 2: Pattern, Number, Meaning & Mysticism
Day 3: Cosmological Proportions: Platonic Solids
Day 4: Architectural Geometry
Day 5: The Golden Number

. . .

Our classes typically consist of 50% new students and 50% returning students, so each course is created anew to honor those who are coming back once again and those new to our classroom.

Focus in the painting intensive will be on oil paint and oil-based mediums, using the most natural products available. We produce an organic, hand-refined, sun-thickened linseed oil that we use in all our paintings and physical classes. You can pre-order a bottle here to use in your work and in the painting intensive.  A complete materials list and detailed schedule will be provided upon registration.

INSTRUCTORS: Aloria Weaver & David Heskin have both been independent professional oil painters for over 25 years and have been teaching together internationally for a decade. 

In 2020 they both received an MA in Traditional Arts (with distinction) from The Prince's School of Traditional Arts in London. Building on their many years of prior work in legacy painting techniques (oil, egg tempera iconography & mischtechnik) and applied geometry, the curriculum of the master's degree program focused on Sacred Geometry as an underlying principle behind some of the world's great art traditions.

Collaboration has become fundamental to their artistic growth over the years in their paintings, curation and creative projects. They are currently establishing a sanctuary for art, nature and education in Colorado.
