Weekend Workshops By Gene Prokop

Following the post-secondary schooling, my greatest push in development or inspiration was seeing the works from the Russian Hermitage collection. They inspired me. The skill of the artist’s brushstrokes, the bold layers of paint and the well-orchestrated compositions were prolific. Viewing a Repin painting, one could feel the blood run through the figure in the painting, which led me to sit for hours and marvel at the talent of the artist.

After returning to Edmonton, I felt cheated by some Art Schools disregarding academic techniques. I knew my job was to teach others the skills and techniques I had acquired, towards classical realism and naturalism.

My own works of art focus on creating mood & drama using romantic brush strokes of the Old Masters. To register for classes,
