In brief, how can I become as authentic as an emerging artist? It is within this framework that we will try, together, to answer these questions, crucial to art-making.

“In the last decade of my long career in teaching drawing, painting, and art history, I came to realize the tremendous progress made in the sphere of art education through our school systems, museums, mass media and, of course, the Internet. Therefore, I have a moral responsibility to evolve in my teaching, since the student-artists are much more aware of techniques, mixing media, and color theory. However, the same problem remains: What should I paint, how and why? This course addresses this problem!” (Yves M. Larocque, Walk the Arts’ director)
