Dr Paul Foropoulos enjoys transfering his selective knowledge of the real Art World to his students (beginners or advanced) helping them to achieve the maximum in any of their Art projects. He helps them patiently to learn  how to produce beautiful paintings & develop their skills to the highest levels, in any style of Art that they will choose. His sincere effort and the students positive response and progress, qualifies their paintings for Galleries and Art Shows and that gives joy to both... 

Paul repeatedly mentions:  " It makes me feel great, to transfer my accumulated skills  thru my Art career and studies to other talents, before my life ends & all this knowledge will be  perish....It is amazing to see their elevated accomplishments as I instruct".

    Paul and Dina are an unordinary team. The patents and knowledge they bestow on newbies like myself is a breath of fresh air compared to other lessons I've taken. I wish anyone who is an aspiring artist to make Foropoulos Studios their learning institution.

  • Hayley Gardner

    I can't imagine how I got so lucky to be able to learn from such a masterful teacher. I am loving it and learning so much so fast.

  • Melissa G. Batt Huber

    A great talented instructor. I would highly recommend Foropoulos’s Studio to all. Well worth learning from a Master of Art. Melissa

FAQs


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

First step is to talk to the potential student.  The first communication will give us both the  opportunity to know each other and exchange questions and concerns.    For examble I would like to know things like: Did the student had any Art Lessons before?   Are they beginners?   Are they advanced?   What are their Goals?   Do they have any concerns?  And definitely they will have their questions too....    This initial contact is Free and can be done by Phone, Viber & whatsapp, or on Line via  Zoom ect.   If the person is local this communication can be done by a FREE Obligation Studio visit to get a personal feeling of the enviroment and what we do. If they decide to start, I will take them thru the following stages, except if otherwise needed.                                                                                            

1.SKETCHING, ( teaching them how to read accurately what they see, and how to sketch it correctly,  in shape and proportions!).   

2. FORMES :   The flat sketch now, it becomes 3D thru Shading. We learn how to use the stages from dark to light, to create successfully 3D affects, or thickness in the image.

3. PERSPECTIVES,  (We learn to present every object in the right distance, and adjust distances in the painting or drawing if they are not correct!

These 3 stages are the foundation of becoming a Good Artist🎨🖼🎨

The principals involved in these three stages, apply not only to all realistic styles, Realism, Photo Realism ect. but also in all Contemporary styles of today's art, including professional Abstruct. If students are good in any of these stages, they move to the next one!!!  No loss of time since they will be trained in their Specific needs as a beginner or advanced. After these few important stages covered, they will be guided to all the successful technics of painting  for example ( brush strokes for different affects, Color relations, The A B C of color Applications, what is first what is second in a painting to avoid frustration and delays. Color Blending,  Choosing a subject for an impressive Painting, and many other jewels for learning how to do a beautiful professional painting. The knowledge is Prime and is transferred in an easy and understandable way, with patience and care and with amazing results.The stages or steps mentioned above will change if the student prefers to do only Abstruct. Paul Foropoulos is here for you to share his  best!!!  You will be trained in a reasonable time, with stunning results!!!        From the first project, even beginners, they will be amazed of what they can do under Paul's instruction and professional guidance.


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

Paul is a PhD Art Instructor from UK Ashford University, also he received Art training for three & a half years being taught and guided by a French Artist Antouan Bedran.              He added extensive studies during his career in Classics and 20th Century Arts in Palazzo Ducale Italy, Ecole du Louvre France, Sprengel Arts of 20th Century Germany.      Up to to day, he constantly updates his knowledge, since he loves Art education!!!

How did you get started teaching?

It  was a time in my New York Studio, when my career was booming.  People started asking me to teach them or teach other members of their Family. I was saying NO for some time, until I attended a Funeral of a Genius scientist. When I saw that brain going under the ground & taking with it all that accumulated knowledge & success, I decided to teach!!!  I started saying YES  I will teach.  Soon it was developed an Art Class. Not very long after, it was established the " Artists Training Center of Foropoulos Studios. Today is called  Foropoulos Studios of Fine Arts.  Since then I teach with ALL my heart, helping talents to achieve their goals.   ln the meantime I keep my International Activities alive, as this is beneficial for me and also for my Art students.
