Fernando Freitas - Mr. Freitas, the senior Instructor, has been drawing and painting for most of his life. He attended the Ontario College of Art (OCA) and later studied with Michael John Angel for a number of years in Canada and in Italy. Earlier, much of his work was illustration and animation, which helped make him a superlative draftsman.
His broad artistic background allows him to empathize well with students, particularly at the start, when the concepts introduced are most foreign, and most difficult. His instruction is geared to the needs of each student, individually. It is this personal touch that distinguishes Fernando among his students, both past and present. Mr. Freitas has been an art instructor prior to working with Academy of Realist Art and he continues to conduct off-site workshops.
