The special guest model is Peter Trippi, Editor in Chief, Fine Art Connoisseur magazine and President, Association of Nineteenth-Century Art. The Facebook Live event will be Trippi’s second Studio Incamminati appearance in 24 hours. Friday, April 5, 6 p.m., he headlines the latest installment of the school’s “The Higher Aim of Art” series featuring experts from various fields in discussions on the nature of creativity. Trippi, a noted art historian, presents "Painting Poetry and the Occult: J.W. Waterhouse's Thematic Inspirations.”

 

The Facebook Live event is the school’s third broadcast of a live-model demonstration featuring multiple cameras capturing the artists as they create their works of art. “Demos” have  a long tradition among representational artists who use them as an educational tool. Audiences often spend several hours watching the art progress from start to finish. Even online, that tradition continues. Studio Incamminati’s Facebook Live demos boast an average watch time of nearly four hours. They also reach more than 10,000 viewers from more than a dozen countries during the process.
