About Lea Whatley Traditional Art Studio

Lea Whatley Traditional Art Studio and atelier serves the Austin area homeschool community by teaching classical and traditional art. The curriculum is informed by the Classical Progression. First , students are immersed in the academic method of drawing. They are taught how to measure the subject in order to render it accurately. Exercises are designed to improve the students drawing skills, with an emphasis on contour, cross contour, proportion and the shape of light and shadow. Once a student has acquired the requisite drawing skills, they begin to learn the art and science of painting. Painting projects are designed for the first-time painting student. The emphasis is on drawing accuracy, handling the paint, and the careful observation of light and shadow. Students go on to use a limited and the full palette while completing increasingly complex projects. Color theory is taught at each step. Students will also learn traditional methods in ceramics, clay, pottery and printmaking. Classes are havens of creativity, rigor, education, friendship and beauty. LWTAS has elementary, middle school and high school classes. All curriculum is time tested and age appropriate. Love and encouragement and a belief system that everyone can learn is embedded in our lessons at LWTAS.
