For artists at every level, beginner to advanced, Evolve affords a relaxing environment with a result driven program of foundational art training. Understanding that technical proficiency is the underpinning of all good art, Evolve offers a rigorous program to develop these skills. Employing a unique approach of contemporary methods built upon the traditions of the old masters, Evolve provides an education that quickly delivers results to its students.
Classes in charcoal rendering and oil painting are the backbone of Evolve's offerings. All traditional classes at Evolve are taught by Kevin Murphy. His twenty years of experience as a professional Illustrator, Art Director, and Portraitist enables him to provide Evolve students an insight typically reserved for those attending the top universities of the world.
Kevin Murphy is an internationally recognized award winning portrait painter and illustrator. Kevin created nearly 250 commercial illustrations for such major entities as:
- The Rolling Stones
- National Geographic
- Lucas Arts
- Barnes and Noble
Pricing is similar to what you'd find for music lessons or a fitness class. The cost of the foundations program (roughly 1 year long) is $167/month for 12 months, and includes all materials instruction (think paint, canvas, brushes, etc), and 1-on-1 check ins for homework assignments as you work through each block to make sure you are developing the good habits all the way through.
If you'd like to pay for the year long program up front, you can do that for $1,800 which saves you $200.
Enrollment for the next Evolve class opens Thursday, September 13th.
