repin academy workshop this summer
I am seriously cosidering organizing another one month summer workshop at the Repin Academy in Petersburg.
This is a great way to familiarize yourself with the teaching methods of the academy in case you decide to apply there. And it's good to take by itself since the amount of knowledge coming out of there is tremendous.
Here are the links to our 2005 and 2006 workshops
I will be posting specifics of this summer workshop later, but it will be similar to the ones in 2005 and 2006.
For those of you who are new to this thread, I strongly suggest that you read my postings in realism versus construction thread.

Thanks for posting Lena! Those nude paintings on the wall in the fourth picture look really good!
Btw, do you want me to add more information in the first post about the academy? If so let me know.

yes, add whatever you think is useful, I have tonns of stuff, but it takes time, so if both of us keep adding, we could make a nice thread.

By the way, just wanted to clarify on the pictures.
All the ones of the studio setups I belive are from the 3-5 year studio run by Professor Nikolai Blokhin. I think a while ago I posted his very short drawing video demonstration link, where he draws a girl in a beret.
He only teaches drawing there, the painting professor is Pesikov (older man and the President of the Academy). This studio has been considered as a weaker one for a while, since the monumental one took all the A students, but now it's getting better, because the monumental studio stylization is getting a little bit too much for some students.
The diploma piece is definitely from the monumental studio, it's hard to see it unfortunately, the photo is so small.

He has a personal website.
Here you can find 3 videos about him including the one with the portrait.
He has some very nice drawings on his website I must say. Here are some of them.
Edit: The last one is a portrait of another Repin Graduate named Vitold Smukrovich
