About this pro

Look Studios East is more of a movable feast than an art school, and if you are an adventurous and art curious person between 10-110 we can get started anytime.

Juliet Lockwood is from a family of artists, BFA at Mass Art in Boston, 1987. European and local art retreats are the best way to be immersed in new ways of unlocking creativity.She approaches art as a practice in finding joy, finding passion and pushing creative blocks off!

Art helps us manifest. Creating a series of workshops for the beginner has been the biggest surprise! Adults who were censored as "not artistic" can return to their safe place , judgement free zone to learn how to express themselves.

Finding  people who need a nudge, and seeing them excel in their art!

i like the act of teaching because in confirms my knowledge!

    Juliet’s art was a draw for me to participate in a retreat at Cafe Muse, a wonderful, magical oasis of creativity inside a local gym, where her many paintings resided. Fueled by her lovingly prepared food and drink, comforted by her gentle yet efficient, clear demonstration of techniques, I created my first book and painting in over 30 years. Juliet’s conscious, nonjudgmental presence allows participants to tap into what artistic manifestation wants to be birthed, to their delight.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

 We begin with a simple charcoal still life. From there I can see where the student needs support. I offered India ink and acrylic paint in the first week of the six week series.  We look at the structure of the human head, the proportions of the human body and animal bodies. Ultimately we look at perspective if it's relevant for this student to understand. When we paint there has been a foundation laid. Expression is more of a flow of color and structure, once the student has practiced it gets easier!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

 Bachelor of Fine Arts for MassArt, emphasis in painting and printmaking.

Studied abroad in Dublin at The National College of Art and Design.

 I continue on the update my skills by drawing ing, daily and keeping my large scale painting coming.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

First find out if you like their work.

 When I studied in art school I wanted to work with the artists whose work was a direction I wanted to go .

if you don't know what kind of work you want to make then you need to just sample some varied styles that different teachers help you create.

 A teacher with a range of styles will be your best choice.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

 What period of our moves you? 

Do you like detail or do you like expressive art?
