Haydee tells The Rickie Report, “My style of teaching is to encourage confidence, self-expression and individuality while adventuring into the basics of art and developing the student’s power of observation and decision making.  Classes are kept small offering more individual attention to each student. Along with relaxing and having fun, creating a beautiful painting will increase confidence and self-esteem as well as the freedom to think flexibly and solve problems. This is especially important for the healthy development of any child as well as a stress release for any adult”. Inside the studio itself the depth of her talent is evident in her work exhibited on the walls; expressions of her powerful artistic statement reflecting her unique vision. Some classes, weather permitting, will be taught outside in the garden.  

 

 

 

 

 Fine Artist, Haydee Ullfig

 

 

Haydee emigrated with her family from Argentina to Chicago as a young child. While in primary school she already showed a strong natural aptitude for art. Haydee continued studying art through High School in Chicago, IL and was awarded a scholarship for classes at the Art Institute of Chicago. She graduated with a major in Fine Arts in 1972 from William Rainey Harper College, Palatine, IL.  Her subsequent degree in Business Administration from the University of Miami, has strengthened her entrepreneurial spirit. Her creativity, versatility and professionalism is reflected not only through her fine art paintings, but in various projects such as children’s book illustrations, commissioned art for interior designers, commissioned portraits and murals. 

 

 

HAYDEE’S VISION: TEACHING OUR CHILDREN CREATIVITY FOR A BETTER WORLD

If you can imagine it, You can achieve it. If you can achieve it, You can become it. –  William Arthur Ward

 

 

 

Haydee says, “Teaching children art, or more specifically creativity, is not only for teaching them to become our future fine artists. Teaching children creativity means teaching them observation and divergent thinking.  Divergent thinking is a thought process or method used to generate creative ideas by exploring many possible solutions.  With divergent thinking children learn to go beyond the mundane towards originality, inventiveness, inside-out thinking, resourcefulness and productivity”.

She continues, “Our world needs these future creative visionaries…..and who knows….they may become the next “Einstein or Jane Goodall” that will save our environment”.  Will they become the next researchers that will allow us to continue living quality and healthy lives in this wonderful world?  They may become our future artists who will l sustain our hope in the future, enhance our world with beauty, and keep our eyes open so that we may conscious of our actions”.

 

 

 

 

“Claire De Lune” by Haydee Ullfig

 

 

 

Haydee’s commitment to give back to the community is  exemplified by her volunteerism creating art for various benefits and non-profit events throughout Palm Beach County, including the Hobe Sound Mural Project, Art in the Alley, and a large mural at Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Wellington, FL, to name a few. Her extensive travels throughout Europe and South America, visiting cultural and artistic centers, her keen observation of the world around her, her love of children, animals and nature, as well as her capacity to see “outside the box” continue to enhance her creative development.  She considers herself an “artist in transition” with her best work still to be created.

 

 

 

WHERE    ART    MEETS    POSSIBILITIES:

 

 

 

 

ADULT      CLASSES:

 

 

 

As an artist and art educator, Haydee Ullfig knows that it’s never too late to get into art or even to re-invent your creative talents. Our classes designed for adults will guide you through the techniques and principles of various fine art and craft mediums. Class sizes are limited, which ensures you’ll be receiving plenty of individualized guidance from the instructor.  

 

 

 

 

 

“Ride A Wild Horse” by Haydee Ullfig

 

 

 

Painting

Probably the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of fine arts, painting is a wonderful gateway into the expansive world of art.  We offer lessons in acrylic, watercolor, gouache and mixed media. Our lessons focus on color mixing, brush technique, composition and theory, but we make sure to emphasize in self-expression.

Drawing

If you want to start with a basis before starting painting, drawing fundamentals including observational drawing is what you need.  Who knows, you may just decide to focus only on drawing which is an art in itself.   Our lessons emphasize on seeing, using right-brain techniques, line contours, shading and perspective. Lessons available in a wide array of drawing materials; learn to draw in charcoal, pencil (graphite and colored), pastels, oil pastels, pen and ink.

Other Creative Expressions                                                                                                

Other media specific classes may be added to our schedule, such as mosaics and sculpture and these will be posted on our website.

Doug Marlowe Helps Harness The Power Of Technology For Individuals And Businesses, With A Specialty Niche For Artists. “teachITnow” Alleviates Frustration And Confusion

Doug Marlowe describes himself as “a curious sort”. His passion with art began at age 10, with the first roll of film he developed. That led him to the Rochester Institute of Technology with a degree in Photo Science and Engineering. He pioneered many of the processes used to go from the camera to the computer and from the computer to the printing press. Doug moved to telecommunications and was a “midwife” at the birth of the public Internet. Doug’s communication skills led him to decades of engineering project management and workplace education. Who has not dealt with some type of  technology issue?  Through teachITnow,Inc., Doug can help individuals, groups, and businesses corral their technology dysfunction and move forward with a sense of confidence toward success.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Could   you   benefit   from   Technotherapy?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the rapid development of the Internet, computers, digital cameras, and cell phones, Doug was driven to educate those who are confused and frustrated with these technologies; especially artists, whose existence revolves around communications.

 

 

 

I don’t know if anyone else – no matter how creative she might ”think” she is – doesn’t arrive at the Wall of Exasperation! “What am I missing? I need a new set of eyes!” That’s how I felt when I called Doug to walk me through some various social media platforms for my very busy real estate career. Two days later, I took all my questions, my media campaigns, branding questions and sat with my ever patient brain trust named Doug Marlowe. Whether its formatting local or global campaigns or analyzing where the “new frontier” of promotion might be, I thank Doug for opening some areas to explore.

Doug helps to “Do it better, Do it faster, and Deliver results.”

 

 

 

 

 

Doug’s company, teachITnow, Inc. has been helping the “bewildered and confused” harness the power of their technology since 2008. 

 

 

 

Doug Marlowe has been my IT guy for ten years. His creative and patient teaching style has enabled me to feel confident in my ability to control the technologies I need to create my art. I trust Doug implicitly with many aspects of my gallery’s operations, social media, and marketing. I recommend Doug highly.

For the art community, and assistance with PC & Mac issues, Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Web Sites (new and updates), Online Stores and Sales (Square, PayPal, etc.), and, of course, training.

 

 

I was in desperate need of revising my web site in time for my SOLO show and knew it needed professional help. My anxieties were dashed within days and my web site looks great at a reasonable cost.  I will continue to call on Doug for help with marketing on social media.  He was a pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend Doug!

Bailey Contemporary Arts Presents

 A   Mixed   Medium,   the   Art   of   Trees  

A  Group  Exhibition:   Arboreal

 

Exhibit is available through June 28, 2019

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While grandiose trees easily catch our eye, this exhibition highlights the exquisite character of their unexpected and humble comrades. From preserved, pristine cherry blossoms encased in ice to A-bomb survivors in Hiroshima, trees and their parts continually school us on the process of growth, decay, and resurrection.  “This exhibition features the vibrant hues of nature and the tremendous range of nature’s canopies,” said Phyllis Korab, Cultural Affairs Director. “The artists capture the essence of why we strive to preserve our natural environment.”

 

 

 

The lives of trees and humans are intertwined, with trees being the giver in this arguably unbalanced relationship. Trees provide oxygen, shelter, food, protection, among other things necessary for human survival. Though paradoxically underappreciated and worshiped, there is no denying trees have a profound impact on our psyche. This collection of painting, sculpture, installation, mixed-media, and photo-based work is a glimpse into how 12 divergent artists interpret and respond to trees, real and imagined.

Sedona is an Arizona desert town near Flagstaff. It is noted for its mild climate and vibrant arts community and is surrounded by red-rock buttes, towering canyon walls and pine forests. Uptown Sedona is dense with shops, spas and art galleries. On the town’s outskirts, numerous trailheads access Red Rock State Park. We will be staying at a very comfortable hotel, the Arroyo Roble, with every room providing a private balcony with breathtaking views of the famous Red Rocks and two separate queen beds. The hotel is situated in walking distance from Uptown Sedona, which is the heart of town, with charming stores and galleries, restaurants and cafes.

Metal Necklace by Maria Tritico

 

 

Maria draws on the life around her as inspiration for her jewelry designs using lines in nature and patterns in architecture and construction materials.  Her pieces are like line drawings, clean and simple so that the viewer’s attention is solely on the design.

As an Art Therapist she has worked in the Cook County Department of Corrections in Chicago, Drug Abuse Foundation of Palm Beach County and Healing Art in West Palm Beach.  Maria allows the client to determine what they need from therapy and tailors how she works to meet their needs, using the art materials as a baseline for conversation.  This helps the client practice creative problem solving skills that parallel skills needed in real life.
