What’s new at the ArtSchool

About the Cover Artist

Hello, ArtSchool Students! Welcome to our new ArtSchool pamphlet! Over the past few years we have worked on revising both our catalog and website to be sleeker and more user friendly. You will find our new and improved layout to be both succinct and informative. One notable change is that our upcoming semester has changed from a Winter/Spring semester to a Winter quarter. Going forward we will be offering classes in quarters that more closely align with the seasons. We’ve realized that most of you don’t sign up for classes five months in advance, so breaking our semesters into smaller periods of time allows the ArtSchool more flexibility to tailor our course offerings to the needs and requests of our students. In this new pamphlet, only the most pertinent information for a course is included: the class, the instructor, and the schedule. All other information including full course descriptions, instructor bios, and material lists can be found at artscenterlive.org/artschool. Use the drop-down ArtSchool menu tab to search classes by discipline, day of the week, time of day, and cost. Thank you for taking this step to explore your creativity and develop your creative skills with us. The ArtSchool will continue to grow and change, but will always offer a welcoming, inclusive community and the talented, professional instruction you’ve come to expect. We look forward to seeing you all in 2019!

Renzo Ortega is an immigrant artist from Lima, Perú. In 2000 he emigrated to the United States and lived and worked in New York for over sixteen years. In the fall of 2016, he relocated with his family to Carrboro, North Carolina. Renzo received a BFA in painting from the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes del Perú (1999), studied at the Art Students League of New York (2000-04) and has his MFA in painting from Hunter College (2014). His recent solo exhibitions have been at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro (August 2018) and at The John and June Allcott Gallery at UNC Chapel Hill (January 2018). He is a recipient of the North Carolina Arts Council Artist Fellowship Award, 2018 Orange County Arts Commission Artist Project Grant, and 2016 Queens Council on the Arts New Work Award. In 2013, as a Kossak Travel Grant recipient, he traveled to Berlin to study German Expressionism, and also in 2015 traveled to Honduras as a part of the U.S. Department of Cultural Affairs Cultural Envoy Program. This Winter Quarter he is teaching Introduction to Drawing and Alla Prima Still Life Painting.
