Artistic Lineage


What is an Artistic Lineage?

The sum total of your art education is the pedigree of the traits and understandings passed down through generations of art instruction.

Just as the standard genealogical family tree traces your genetic traits through your parents, to your grandparents and beyond; an artistic family tree traces the “DNA” of the threads of your knowledge back through your instructors, to their instructors, and so on. Just as your great-great grandparents have contributed to your biology, the art instructors several levels back have contributed to your knowledge.

This Artistic Lineage chart at right sheds light on the inspiring connections that students of Ocean View Arts (and the Stevenson Academy) have with some of the greatest artists in history. Artwork by many of them can be seen below.
