Stephen Gjertson Interview

Published July 10, 2020

Skill-Based Art: A Learning Resource for Art Students & Artist-Teachers has republished a video interview with Classical Realist painter and ARC Living Master, Stephen Gjertson, which was recorded during 1996. Mr. Gjertson was part of the first cohort of students who were trained by Richard Lack in Minnesota during the early 1970s, who went on to become an influential teacher of the Classical Realist tradition. Mr. Gjertson has actively propagated the teachings of Mr. Lack throughout his life as well as writing two of Mr. Lack's biographies and continuing to paint images which celebrate his faith, family, and strong appreciation for artists of the past.
