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.
