BAK & DREYFOOS PREP with Charles Bane

 

The curriculum of each of these schools challenges students to achieve a high standard of artistic professionalism and academic excellence.  Charles Bane’s classes at Jerry’s Artarama in West Palm Beach help level the playing field, as students apply for acceptance in these programs.

 

 

 

TRR: Tell our readers about your own creativity

CB:

Currently, I’m a student at FAU and plan to work at a finance firm after passing the Series 7 & 66 exams.  My artwork is really me just experimenting. Depending on the day, I’ll explore abstract… although lately I’ve been having fun with Liechtenstein-inspired paintings exploring depression in super heroes.

TRR:  Please share some details about your prep classes at Jerry’s Artarama

CB:

 My classes at Jerry’s Artarama in W. Palm Beach are a Bak/Dreyfoos prep class. Instead of exploring the different points of the audition with an equation for the kids to follow, I push their critical thinking and abilities so the auditions seem easy.

Normally, I use massive still lives, fast paced gesture drawings, and monster paper sculptures.

TRR:  What is the main focus of the class?

CB:

 

It’s all about critical thinking and pushing problem solving skills. This way, no matter the level they’re on, they can stay in a comfort zone and move forward.

The auditions are an endurance test. Most of my students stay with me from the year before their audition up until the actual audition.

 

 

 

TRR:  Do you have any help hints to share with us?

CB:

Honestly, a sketchbook can be a student’s best friend. I always tell my students to keep drawing.

TRR:  When do your classes take place?

CB:

 

The classes are on Saturdays. There is a $15.00 fee and all are welcome. I’ve had adults  who just needed a refresher on drawing.
