Nothing more Romantic than drawing and painting in Rome!!

Nothing more Romantic than drawing and painting in Rome!! I'm teaching a painting workshop there this July, its going to be so much fun revisiting all of the parts of town that I learned so much from on my trips there, and getting to share the experience with students!! So stoked!! Heres a pic drawing in the Chiesa del Popolo.

David Jon Kassan 

(born 1977 in Little Rock, Arkansas) is an internationally recognized contemporary American painter, filmmaker, and philanthropist best known for his life-size representational paintings, which combine figurative subjects with abstract backgrounds or “tromp l’oeil texture studies.” Of this dual representation strategy Kassan notes, “my effort to constantly learn to document reality with a naturalistic, representational painting technique allows for pieces to be inherent contradictions; paintings that are both real and abstract.”

Kassan is a much sought after drawing and painting instructor because of his steadfast commitment to the age old discipline of working from life and creating compelling expressions of the human condition. He has given painting/drawing seminars and lectures at various institutions, and universities around the world. In 2013, he founded the Kassan Foundation in hopes of giving grants directly to underprivileged talent in both the visual and musical arts.

Kassan works can be seen in many public and private collections worldwide. Kassan lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
