of the Masters,
A Legacy Continues...

If you don't learn all that went before,
you can't move forward
. Artists in the
days of old did not have students, they
had apprentices. So unfortunately in
many cases, techniques died with them.
As art moved into the 20th century many
techniques of the great masters had
been completely lost. I am fortunate that
in the lineage from artist to teacher I am
not only just a few generations directly
from greats one might see at the
Smithsonian, because thosethat went
before me had a great passion to
rediscover the methods and media of
such greats as the 17th century Dutch
painters. With this classical training and a
curiosity of materials, I have brought the
methods forward; making a less-toxic
form of the wax-based medium I learned
to paint with. Or trying the same
techniques in wax-based pencils. I have
developed, like all artists, a personal
style and method. But even as I draw in
colored pencil, I find myself unsatisfied
unless I render the skin to look like skin;
translucent. I also love to experiment and
am sure that with the right technique, and
understanding of materials, artists should
accomplish even better work than what
has gone before, as we keep striving
forward. Because it is the skills even
more than the media. And so continues a
legacy from artist to student, passing
down the skills of the Masters.

Elisia, my 14 year old daughter, is always helping
out in every class. I sometimes feel that I could not
teach with out her. I look over one day and see,
she is an excellent artist in her own right. Her
Barn Owl won first place for 6th grade in 2014 and
her butterfly won first place for 7th/8th grade in
2015 at the Franklin Park Arts Center's Youth Art
Show. Sheentered the Storytime piece in Colored
Pencil Magazine's monthly national contest & won
the under 15 Junior division.
It is my greatest joy to
see my students achieve their highest potential!

Here is the finished piece AND SHE WON!!!!

If taught correctly, an
artist is a person who
can do anything.
Zadravec's Beyond Art
approach has been proved
in 20 years  of teaching,
her own art methods and
successes of her students.
Whatever field a person
chooses, the training of
creative problem solving;
actually seeing differently;
assessing and carrying
through a project to
completion, are invaluable
life skills. Trained in
traditional methods, but
always innovative in her
approach, Lis asserts,
cannot go forward if you
forget all that was
learned in the past.

Originally from Washington
DC, Lis began taking art
classes at the age of 4. By
10, she was studying in the
adult program at the
Corcoran School of Art.
She studied again at the
Corcoran in her college
years as well as with artists
of the DC Color School.
She is respected for her
teaching, her artwork, she
co-founded a school of the
arts and has taught in
many venues in Northern
VA and New York.
"We all
have been given the
directive to multiply our
gifts. I can think of no
better way than to share
mine while watching
more art be created than
I'd ever be able to do
