ASK THE MASTERS! Art Critiques: Composition & Colour
We'll answer the big questions, like:
❓ How important is it to follow the rules of composition and when can I break them?
❓ Is the use of color more effective than composition to enhance the story I'm telling through my artwork?
❓ How do I guide the viewer into my painting and keep them there?
❓ BRING YOUR QUESTIONS!

My passion is helping artists paint with their own individual voices rather than reproducing a photograph. The best way I have found to do this is by teaching a self-critique process where we look at 3 stages of art creation: before you begin to paint, during your painting process, and at the end of the process.
“My goal and ambition are to bring beauty and peace into people’s homes through my art, and to offer the life-giving joy of creation to my art students.”
Meet Alexandra Manukyan
Oil, Graphite, & Charcoal Master Artist
I work in different series that cover different themes, issues, and concepts, but the central theme that unites all of my paintings is human connection. The paintings examine what seem to be separate and isolated life experiences and look for the connections to, and impacts on, other people hidden in them.
The “masks” and the accompanying identities we all assume depend on the life roles we must play. They obstruct the conscious mind from acknowledging what unites us: our shared experiences of pain, loss, desire, the need for acceptance, and the quest for personal serenity.
I also portray images of strong women with almost god-like capabilities to impact the animals and environments around them. They are fierce and in control, which, as I show, may be detrimental to their surroundings. This is a topic that runs passionately in my heart, and I hope through my art I can provoke the realization that right now, we, as a species, have the opportunity to stop this downward trend of destruction to this planet, our home.
