Don Viktor's Four-Part Art-Design Training

I. CORE80 - Decode Masterworks
To get introduced to this language of art-design and see how masters used it in their artwork, Don Viktor teaches you to deconstruct masterpieces in 15 ways. It's important to see how master artists designed art so you can have the confidence to apply those same strategies, solutions, and systems to your own artwork. You are to decode a minimum of 80 masterworks within the next 90 days.

II. ARTSCORE - Critique Art Objectively
Using Don Viktor's ArtScore System you are to critique a minimum of 40 contemporary artists. You critique their artwork as well as your own on 14 key factors. This system makes determining the value of a work of art more objective. You quickly see the strengths and weakness within your own art and your competitions.

III. PROJECT: LINE - Design a Masterwork 101
Your first art-design drawing focuses on designing your lines. You are to complete a final line drawing. Don Viktor has you focus on the theory of your art aka the story or purpose of it. Then you manage the curves and straight line strategies used to convey the story and feel you want. You are introduced to Lionel, a special tool that helps you bring structure and order to your artwork quickly. Don Viktor shows you the ALP method so you can determine the perfect canvas dimensions. You learn to design your signature and how to place it in your artwork. And finally, you bring all this work together and composite a final line drawing that is absolutely crafted, cared for, and considered.

IV. PROJECT: SPACE - Design a Masterwork 201
Drawing 2, is the same process as your first drawing with a few modifications. You do your theory, curves but when it comes to you lines we use the vGrids. We replace the Lionel tool with the vGrids. The vGrids give you more accurate lines then Lionel and it gives you the math regarding space that makes a masterwork feel so sound. After this stage in the process, you use the vGrid to determine your canvas dimensions. You craft your signature into your composition and do your final drawing.

V. PROJECT: VALUE - Design a Masterwork 301
In this stage, you execute your third drawing in the same way you did your second. After your third drawing is complete Don Viktor shows you how to map out your values. You learn how to plan your three macro-values so your art can be read from across a gallery or room. Next, you learn to plan your nine micro-values so your artwork has an atmosphere and visual weight that is as considered as every line and space in your image. One the micro-values map is plotted. You transfer it to canvas and paint according to your plan.

At the end of this process you have ...
  • 3 completed drawings
  • 1 value painting
  • 80 artwork analysis
  • 40 art scored critique
  • Authority in the language of Art-Design
  • Better artwork --- period!

This is an intense, smart, and fun experience that expands your artistic-logic. Welcome to this part of your life-long journey toward mastery.
