A professional art studio situated in Johannesburg Gauteng in the leafy suburb of Northcliff giving art classes. All classes are taught by the owner Cameron Annear who Graduated from The University of Witwatersrand in 1990 majoring in painting with a B.A.(F.A.). The 4 year degree was under the tutelage of Carel Nel , Penny Siopis, Clive Van Den Berg, Professor Alan Crump, Willem Strydom, Niels Coetzee, Walter Altman, Colin Richards and Margaret Voster.
Growing up in the eighties Music and fine art were my loves. “My art reflects me trying to break barriers of abstraction,
ballpoint pen, enamel no use of a brush are all ways of testing boundaries. Both formally and historically, Art is sublime and so is the activity of making it – it is very similar to meditation and prayer and losing yourself in a parallel universe that eases the soul’s pain. I believe that art is a vehicle for personal change and as an investigation of meaning it is the truth.”
Cameron has designed a course which is in book form where an assessment of right brain integration and other exercises are suggested. While the book is prescriptive it encompasses the shortest journey between picking up a pencil for the first time to painting.
The ‘Book’ takes approximately 8 weeks, to work through which culminates in a still life study.
The studio encourages all types of investigation there after, hopefully through exposure the student becomes an ‘artist’ and not merely a copyist, or colourist.
The vision of the studio is to provide formal tuition where picture making and all its elements are exposed to the student. The basis of all art making is to see. Seeing, not what you think you see. It is for that reason that drawing is the foundational vehicle, used to initiate a student’s creative talent.
Participants are from all races and ages, which range from 7 to 82 years old and professions from accountants to doctors.
Classes are small and intimate and are conducted in an air conditioned environment, or outside. Tea, coffee and cold drink are available, and light music sets the ambience.
