I. Classical Drawing:

Skills-based learning is one of the most effective methods for teaching not only skills in drawing but also in the analysis of artworks. 
In the Classical Drawing course, students will learn to unleash the power of observation. 

Students will learn to recognize the natural world in abstracted form and will be able to break down the pictorial field in abstracted lines, textures, shapes, and values. We at the Atelier believe that honing the student’s visual perception increases his or her visual intelligence regardless of age.
In this course, students will learn a more disciplined drawing process and cultivate a workflow aligned with the atelier approach. The student will learn the ways lines express ideas and be more attuned to planar forms and tones. The student will be able to distinguish the elements of art, learn to identify and correct drawing errors, find accurate angles, and combine lines to form

He trained in the restoration and conservation of the paintings of Fernando Amorsolo, Carlos Francisco, Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo, and Juan Luna. Keen to develop his expertise, Alfred travelled to international shores in 2007 and studied under Marco Cavallini. The Bottega Arte in Florence, Italy is esteemed for trompe l’oeil techniques. Aside from the traditional Florentine approach to murals, the studio was also known for the architectural illusionistic technique called quadraturism. The artistic practice of Galvez ranges from portraits, murals, faux finishes transform the abode into a resplendent space. Alfred Galvez established AG murals in 2003. Together with younger muralists, he established MIKRA FAUX. The Kuwentong Diwata Series of Alfred Galvez have enthralled many art audiences and have been exhibited in galleries in Metro Manila. Pinoiserie, a series inspired by Filipino rural sceneries and leitmotifs invented by Galvez was also well received by gallerists and interior design specialists
