15th Annual ARC Salon (2020-2021)

Brock Larson

United States

Brock Larson (b. 1991) first began drawing at an early age under the guidance of his father, Jeffrey T. Larson, as well as his grandfather, Marvin Espe. He started his approach to academic practice during highschool with Charles Bargue plates, master copies, and cast drawing before moving to Minneapolis to pursue a formal education at The Atelier Program of Fine Art, where he studied for five years alongside attending workshops. He then began teaching evening classes in his senior year prior to returning to his hometown area of Duluth MN, to help his father establish a similar studio apprenticeship program, Great Lakes Academy of Fine Art. Together, they spent two years researching and formulating their curriculum before renovating an old catholic church into an ideal setting for students. Here, they currently instruct the full time program and offer workshops. 

Brocks work has been included and collected in multiple exhibitions throughout the US, including New York City NY, Cape Cod MA, Charlston SC, Los Angeles CA, Door County WI, and Minneapolis/St. Paul MN.
