with Prof. Philip Rubinov Jacobson
There is reason that Prof Phil’s students have been unusually successful in both their work and life, and that is that no two artists that study with him ever end up painting even remotely similar to him or to one another.The versatility in his student’s work is a reflection of the teacher’s indefatigable support, respect and encouragement of each individual’s visual language and artistic expression.

Prof. Phil is an artist, author, philosopher, teacher and visionary. He has been a strong proponent of art and consciousness and a teacher for more than 35 years, especially in the visionary and fantastic genres, and has been referred to as "the lynch-pin of visionary art" by Alex Grey. He co-founded and directed the first Institute for Contemplative Education and Visionary Art in upstate New York in 1980. Later, serving as the Dean at Naropa University, he founded and directed the new School of Extended Studies from 1991- 1997. In 1997 he was charged by his old mentor (since 1973), Prof. Ernst Fuchs, to carry on his teachings of the Old Masters and to inspire New Visions.

Prof Phil is renowned for creating seminars (that he refers to as 'creative communities') in which one is transformed, empowered and inspired, awakened to a higher knowledge, ability and confidence in their work. A new feeling and sense of belonging to an 'united nations' of integral artists and life itself emerges within. Join us in discovering the secrets of the old masters while unleashing new visions in your own visual language

Classic Old Masters "Mixed-Technique" Egg Tempera and Oil Painting In the "classic mische", or 'mixed-technique of egg tempera and resin-oil painting we practice under-painting on an egg emulsion ground to achieve the astounding effects of light, depth, solidity and transparency achieved only through a division of labor in the building of a picture. The participant will discover an excellent and sound method that lends itself to any style or means of expression. We succeed by building a picture through a strong monochromatic under-painting to create an underlying unity. This creates the Flemish and German advantages and magic of the 'optical grays', neutral tones and colors that cannot be painted 'directly' and can only be attained through modeling and hi-lighting in egg tempera white and over painting in layers and glazes of resin-oil color to give the painter the incredible power of luminosity, and the living atmosphere of any vision imaginable or anything one has experienced.
