ivky’s Art Workshop
is a build up program that starts with the basics and climbs to
a level of sophistication in a very quick amount of time.
Just like in reading
there are basic building blocks.
The five key elements of drawing are
the basic building blocks of art that I use as my overall
umbrella for how to approach the Rivky Method.
First, we teach the
concept of the line.
Using the eye of the artist, you
learn to see the object as a whole and the space it would need
to take on the surface of your canvas.
Then we would cover shape so that,
let’s say we are drawing an apple, the apple starts to take form
on your surface.
But, it’s flat.
So, we cover dimension through the
learning of light and shadow.
You learn to see how light enters a
room and a shadow is cast that brings life to your apple.
It’s starting to come to life on
We cover color and
value so your apple becomes more realistic.
Your colors start to take on a
variance that occurs as light and shadow interact with your
Then, we cover texture which adds
the sophistication to the art that you need in order to make it
So, our students can create
wonderful works of art without years of experience because of
their introduction to the five key elements.
Of course, with more experience
their art will continue to get more sophisticated.
But, it is at this basic level that
they already understand enough to move forward.
You can learn the five
key elements in a matter of days.
Then, as you are putting the rest of
your business plan together and promoting your workshop so that
you have a full first class, you can master the five key
elements in a few short weeks.
Once you begin teaching, you’ll
really start to feel your competence rise in teaching art.
We only need to work with you on a
few bits and pieces to keep making you a better teacher as you
continue in your success.
But, Rivky's Art Workshop is not merely about The Rivky Method and how to teach art classes. It's a complete business package.
First of all, you’ll
get an entire business plan that is custom designed for you.
Included in that is the marketing
demographics you will need to understand your business and how
to make it grow in your location.
It also includes the company vision
and a complete market plan so that you can begin to grow your
This business plan would normally
cost you several thousands of dollars if you were to have
someone design a business plan for you the way we have done
As part of the entire
package, you’ll also get complete marketing material that has
been used to grow a small business of only a few classes to
several hundred students in little time.
The marketing material includes
flyers, ads and postcards that are custom designed to market
your center’s name as the licensee of Rivky’s Art Workshop.
You’ll receive the marketing
material in electronic as well as manual format so that you can
easily work with them for yourself. By the way, the marketing that is already in place will help you grow your business too. That includes an impressive
internet marketing campaign as well as the ground roots efforts that have always proven successful.
The operations package
is quite extensive including the curriculum manual, instructors
manual, an operations manual and an employee handbook.
The curriculum manual actually
details the perfect period philosophy behind the curriculum.
That’s how the teaching concepts
build on each other and are incorporated across the curriculum.
The operations manual
is the business in a box.
It shows you how to run the business
on a daily basis, but it also takes you from details you need to
know before opening the doors to tax issues and such.
Everything you need to know about
running your business is in the operations manual.
The employee handbook
is included in case you want employees.
Of course, you can run your workshop
But if you grow your students to
several hundred and would like to hire an assistant or have
extra teachers added to the staff, the employee handbook covers
such things as how to manage personnel from paperwork to tax
issues with employees.
The entire program is well-thought-out and it has been time
tested. Every aspect of
running your own business is covered in all the material you are
given when you invest in Rivky’s Art Workshop and the Rivky
