Juliette Aristides(b. 1971) is a gifted, passionate, intellectually stimulating artist who seeks to understand and convey the human spirit through art.
Ms. Aristides has spent the past ten years acquiring a rigorous education on the principles of classical realism. She began her studies in 1988 under Myron Barnstone in Design Systems. She continued to study drawing and painting at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, then at The Atelier in Minneapolis in the tradition of Richard Lack. This work was followed two years of instruction at the National Academy in New York with Jacob Collins, while also receiving instruction from Carlos Madrid. Juliette spent a year working with a small group of students at Jacob Collins' studio prior to becoming a founding member of the Water Street Studio in Brooklyn, New York.
Juliette received both the Wilder Prize for Drawing and the Albert Hallgarten Traveling Scholarship while studying at the National Academy of Design. She is also a recipient of the Elisabeth Greenshields Grant and she is a frequent contributor to Artist's Magazine. Juliette exhibits nationally at the John Pence Gallery in San Francisco. Her work can also be seen under the living masters gallery on the website for The Art Renewal Center.
"I have a simple belief that the goal of learning to draw and paint is attainable by anyone who is willing to pursue it. It is as accessible as learning to write or play a musical instrument. There is more than one path a person can follow to be a well-trained artist. What is necessary, however, is a passion for excellence, discipline, and an unflinching desire to pursue truth.
Traditional skills are necessary for developing a foundational base for the artist to work from. It is craftsmanship that opens the door to effective self-expression. I am excited about teaching the methods from our artistic inheritance. I know that once this knowledge becomes commonplace again, it can only enrich our cultural life." -- Juliette Aristides, August 1, 2002
